History

The word “laser” is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The theory was first described in 1916 by Albert Einstein who paved the way for the development of the therapeutic laser that we use today for pain.

The first laser was developed in 1960. In 1967, A Hungarian professor of medicine named Andre Mester, M.D., discovered that accelerated wound healing occurred with low intensity laser irradiation of wounds. Dr. Mester is considered the father of laser therapy. He published multiple papers throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s on scientific investigation and therapeutic application of ruby laser and helium neon laser.

In the late 1970s, diode lasers were invented. This allowed low-cost, high-wattage lasers to become marketable, and revolutionized modern society for their application ranging from scanners to CD players, to optical transmission of data. Most lasers today are diode lasers, either using gallium aluminum arsenide as a substrate or gallium arsenide as a semiconductor substrate.

The most common wavelengths are in the 790-to-970 nanometer ranges. The K-laser is a revolutionary medical therapy laser utilizing dual gallium aluminum arsenide lasers specifically engineered for the highly therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths 970 nm and 790 nm. These wavelengths have significant unique properties for cell stimulation and pain suppression. The K-laser is a medical breakthrough therapy device with unparalleled applications and treatment outcomes.

During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical course of treatment is five minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.How often should a patient be treated? Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.
How many treatments does it take?

How long before the results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?

Yes. Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, including: physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

Doctor Richter and his team are always very professional and courteous. I appreciate the friendly environment and quick service and treatment. I had an x ray assessment when I first went in, which followed with a thorough consultation, and they provided me cervical roller and sent me exercise I can do to go with my treatment package, as well as electro shock therapies. I'm only about half way through and my back and neck pain has relieved a lot!
