Burkhart & Chapp Chiropractic, PLC is excited to introduce a class IV therapeutic laser to its integrative treatment protocols. Class IV Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that can relieve pain, reduce swelling, and increase range of motion while accelerating tissue regeneration. The K-laser device utilizes 4 different wavelengths of light (660nm, 800nm, 905nm, 970nm) that interact synergistically with the cells of the body to stimulate tissue repair and growth.
Overall, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain. Numerous studies show that laser therapy can be effective in treating the following conditions:
- Ligament Sprains & Muscle Strains
- Tendinopathies & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow & Plantar Fascitis
- Sports injuries & Repetitive Stress Injuries
- Shoulder, Back & Knee pain
If you would like to learn more about Laser Therapy or have questions about how it can help you, please contact our office at 616 698-0046 to make an appointment with one of our doctors.
This video explains the biological effects seen with the K-Laser device. The four specific wavelengths of laser light have been shown to improve blood flow and accelerate tissue repair. This allows for a non-invasive approach to addressing pain, stiffness, and conditions that are not traditionally thought to be treated at the chiropractor.
