The K-LASER is the worlds most powerful cold laser and is used for therapy to reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and promote tissue repair.
How does low level laser therapy work?
The effects of low level laser therapy are photochemical, not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used for surgical precision while cold lasers are used for healing precision. During treatment of tissue with the laser, an interaction between cells and photons takes place--a photochemical reaction. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. The cold laser enters the tissue, alters cell membrane permeability, and at the cellular level is absorbed in the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the "Powerhouse" of the cells and make ATP which is needed for the life enhancement process of every cell which facilitates:

When combined with chiropractic care the best results are achieved to organize the nervous system and promote healing. Low level laser therapy is a major advantage for athletes due to the neurological applications and the extremely fast results that can be achieved.
