evolve now utilizes a state-of-the-art Class IV therapeutic laser. This will help facilitate faster healing times with pain reduction, as well as a more complete recovery. K-Laser Therapy is an FDA approved therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration.

How does K-Laser Therapy  work?

K-Laser Therapy helps tissues heal faster, including muscles, skin and nerves. Laser energy increases blood and lymphatic circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area, while activating cell processes to remove the injured tissues and promote rebuilding.  This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.

Science & Research

During K-Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.

More than 1200 studies conducted over 40 years worldwide have shown the powerful therapeutic benefits of high power laser therapy.

Findings include:

  • Acute Pain: diminished more than 70%, chronic pain more than 60%
  • Chronic Low Back Pain: treatment effective in 71% of cases; pain eliminated completely in 45%
  • Wounds: 55% greater healing on day 8, as compared to the placebo group
  • Knee Injury: improved knee flexion and pressure sensitivity after every treatment

K-Laser Therapy is offered at our clinic by all of our chiropractic doctors:  Dr. Shamira Rahim, Dr. Giselle Chamberlain,  Dr. Christine White, and Dr. Kelsey Horsting.
