K-Laser Knee Treatment (2) (640x478)

Imagine what it would be like to walk without pain or walk without a cane?  Imagine what it would be like to wake up in the morning without throbbing arthritic aching?  Capilano Rehab is excited to offer the new K-Laser™ Arthritic Therapy program.  K-Laser™ is an innovative treatment option for arthritic pain in your neck, shoulders, back, hips and knees. 

What is the K-Laser?

The K-Laser™ is an advanced technology Deep Tissue Laser Therapy System that can effectively bio-stimulate and repair damaged tissue while reducing pain. 

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.

Benefits of K-Laser™ Therapy

Laser Therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth. In acute conditions, the K-Laser accelerates wound healing and decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic pain, the Class IV K-Laser Therapy can provide effective results, is non-addictive and virtually free of side effects.

Has Laser Effectiveness Been Demonstrated Scientifically?

Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.  Capilano’s K-Laser™ is Health Canada approved through the Therapeutic Products Directorate of the Medical Devices Bureau. 

What Are the Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy?

During K-Laser treatment, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.

What Are the Therapeutic Effects of Laser Therapy?

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates a soothing and optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.  And this is what makes the K-Laser™ so particular: because it enhances and dramatically accelerates the body’s own natural healing powers, producing long lasting pain relief.

K-Laser™ Advanced Technology

The K-Laser system is recognized as a leading product in pain management, tissue repair, safe treatments, and effective treatment responses. Specifically, the K-Laser System offers:
