FAQs

Q: How do I know if I need laser treatment?

A: Your chiropractor will discuss this with you before your treatment, after they have assessed your condition. If appropriate, they can treat you straight away.

Q: How long are the treatments?

A: Depending on which area of the body is treated, they apply the laser for between 4 to 10 minutes. Often laser treatment is included in your appointment, given alongside manual and other chiropractic treatments that we offer.

Q: How often would I need treatment?

A: It’s typically twice a week for 3 weeks, though some conditions, particularly if they’re acute, may only require 2 sessions. Each individual patient and case is different.

Q: I’ve had a knee replacement – does that mean I can’t have laser therapy?

A: K-Laser treatment is safe to deliver over bones with metal implants, broken skin, and on acute, swollen injuries.

Q: I’ve had my back pain for years. Can laser help?

A: It’s unlikely that chronic pain will disappear completely. But isn’t it great that there’s now a natural, holistic treatment option that heals the body rather than simply masking the symptoms?
