High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT)

Pain Relief and Tissue Healing Using High Power Laser Therapy

Class IV Laser Therapy is a revolutionary advancement in non-surgical pain relief and tissue repair. This treatment is safe, comfortable and highly effective in helping your body to heal. The K-Laser 12 Watt High Power Laser is the most powerful, deepest penetrating, therapeutic laser currently approved for use in Canada.

High Power Laser Therapy represents a huge technological breakthrough over less effective “Cold Lasers”. Class IV High Power Laser Therapy is capable of delivering much greater amounts of healing energy than the previous generation of Laser Therapy devices.  More power means greater effectiveness, deeper penetration and shorter treatment times.

What is High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT)?

L-A-S-E-R is an acronym that stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission or Radiation. Normal light consists of many wavelengths that scatter in different directions. A laser amplifies and focuses specific light frequencies into collimated beams of a single wavelength.

Although lasers can be found almost everywhere, from laser pointers in a classroom, to surgical lasers in operating rooms; therapeutic lasers are unique to the field of medicine. Therapeutic lasers are able to transmit energy below the skin level to the underlying tissue without harming the tissue it passes through. The light energy reacts in the body by creating physiological changes within the cells– a process called photobiomodulation. These benefits include pain reduction, decreased inflammation, increased blood circulation and improved healing time.
