Laser Therapy in Missouri Valley

Chiropractic Missouri Valley IA Laser Therapy

Chiropractor Missouri Valley IA James Hoyt“When patients ask me about the K-Laser, I tell them it reminds me of some of the healing instruments that I used to watch “Bones” (Dr. McCoy) use with patients on the TV show STAR TREK which fascinated me as a child. He would call it something like a ‘Neuro-photonic Regeneration Accelerator’! I have used various types of lasers for therapeutic purposes for over 20 years. I have used the K-Laser for 4 years now. It is one of the most powerful healing lasers in the United States and much more powerful than popular cold laser therapy because of its depth of penetration and versatility. It is remarkably effective for stimulating acupuncture points.”

What is K Laser Therapy?Chiropractic Missouri Valley IA Laser Therapy Machine

The K-Laser is a painless therapy in Missouri Valley that uses specific wavelengths of light that creates therapeutic effects such as increasing circulation, decreasing pain, inflammation, decreasing swelling and it also improves healing time. The therapeutic effects of treatment may penetrate deep enough to help patients with large joint problems with the lower back and hip problems. Being able to treat patients naturally and effectively with Laser Therapy to bio stimulate tissue repair has proven to be a real asset for many patients that Dr. Hoyt sees.

Treatment Time and Relief in Missouri Valley

Chiropractic Missouri Valley IA Laser TreatmentLaser sessions typically range from 6-8 minutes. Often, just a warm sensation is felt during the treatment. During each treatment, laser energy increases circulation, reduces inflammation and swelling while increasing circulation to the affected area. Most conditions take approximately 6 to 8 visits, depending on the severity. Chronic or severe conditions may take 15 or more treatments and may benefit from a periodic “Tune-up” just like Chiropractic care.

Numerous studies have shown the effectiveness of laser therapy in the treatment of arthritis, back and neck pain, carpal tunnel, knee and shoulder pain, foot and ankle problems, sports injuries, and fibromyalgia just to name a few.

Much like Chiropractic, this therapy is not designed to specifically treat any particular condition. The K-Laser accentuates the body's innate ability to heal, regenerate, and repair damaged tissue thus speeding the recovery time. The treatments are pain-free. There is no downtime for recovery. There are very few side effects and contraindications.

“There is no single procedure that is 100% effective for treating musculoskeletal conditions. However, I know from my own experience of over 35 years of practice that I could not practice effectively without the K-Laser. I have been very impressed with patient outcomes with a wide variety of conditions that I have seen using the K-Laser in conjunction with Chiropractic and Acupuncture. With Acupuncture, instead of using needles, I use the K-Laser to stimulate acupuncture points which is noninvasive and painless. It is safe, with no risk of infection and very effective.”
