How long has laser therapy been utilized in pain management?
The laser was invented in 1960 and the biostimulative properties of laser light were first discovered in 1970s. Therapy lasers have been used in Europe much longer than in the United States. The FDA first cleared therapy lasers in the early 2000s,.
Will the WELLWRAP help me treat my Pain?
Yes, the WELLWRAP will not only allow you to get rid of your pain, but it will also help you treat the source of the pain. Medical research suggests that LLLT (low level laser technology) has the ability to provide natural healing for several medical conditions.

Class 2 laser devices present minimal potential for harm to the user and are classified as NSR (Non-Significant Risk) by the FDA. Out of additional caution, it is recommended not to direct WellWrap on a pregnant womb, on a pacemaker, and to use protective eyewear for treatments on face or eyes. for more info click here
We are extremely safe, because it works only when you wear it on the knee – Wellwrap uses proximity sensors, so the lasers turn on only when it’s in close proximity and is actually worn on the knee…
Are there any side effects?
The beauty of LLLT treatments and wellwrap are that there’s no side effects or any issues with over-dosage, the body simply stops absorbing the light energy when it reaches capacity and hence it’s all-natural light therapy that not only provides pain relief but treats the area for natural healing.
How can I expedite the treatment?
The LLLT treatment is intended to be used twice a day. Or when you feel the pain. However, studies have shown that there is a small possibility of speedy recovery if the treatment is conducted twice a day. It is possible to treat your pain in the morning and repeat the treatment in the evening (14 minutes each time).
What does the stimulation feel like?
The stimulation warms the treated area.
How quickly will I get pain relief?

What kind of pain does the WELLWRAP treat?
Currently we have wellwrap for the knee. The WELLWRAP device is designed to relieve different kinds of pain, related to the knee including acute and chronic pain, from arthritis, osteopetrosis, bursitis, MCL/ACL tears, patella pain, and more. It is also recommended to use on bone or tissue injuries, Fresh scars and burns as well as sports injury pain, inflammation pain and more.
Can I use the WELLWRAP device more than twice daily?
After concluding research in the field, it was found that using WELLWRAP for two (2) treatments a day will provide you with the optimal results. Using it more than twice a day did not show evidence of better or faster results.
Does the pain relief last beyond the end of a therapy session?
Yes! Typically, the user feels pain relief for at least 2 hours if not more, and the times predicated by the severity of the pain being treated, and the medicine being taken.
How long will it take to see results?
You will feel pain relief after 2 treatments of 7 minutes each. As with any medical treatment, each person has his own unique healing time. Healing time also depends on the physical condition being treated. Normally, within 3 or more days, you will feel an improvement, and within 12 or more days your pain will be substantially reduced or eliminated. Chronic pain may take longer to heal. Individual results may vary.
Are there any drug interactions with K-Laser therapy?
You should wait at least seven days after getting a cortisone shot. Research has suggested that it is a net zero gain for K-Laser and steroids because they both suppress prostaglandin E-2. Light sensitive medication presents a relative contraindication to laser therapy.
Can I use it in conjunction with other therapies?
Yes! Wellwrap technology is safe to use with other therapies as long as one adheres to the user manual.
Can I use it with pain medication?
Yes! Wellwrap can be used along with pain medication, but one should try wellwrap before taking pain medicine for any knee pain and may find that it’s not necessary.
Can the treatment increase my pain?
Generally speaking, the treatment with WELLWRAP will not increase your pain. However, a very small percentage of individuals will feel a slight increase in pain, during the first few treatments. This is a good sign, showing that your body is responsive to the treatment. In such a case, it is recommended to shorten the daily treatment to 5 minutes or less (or to the extent your body is comfortable with). Repeat the treatment for 2 – 5 days, until your body adjusts to the treatment and then proceed with the treatment as indicated in the user manual.

Wellwrap can be used by anyone who suffers from knee pain. However, you should not use WELLWRAP if you are:
- > Pregnant women – Do not point the device towards the womb area.
- > Have a pacemaker – Do not use near the pacemaker (15cm from pacemaker)
- > Diagnosed with cancer
Some patients tell that they feel heat even if they are treated with high power Laser emission. Is Laser Therapy based on thermal effects?
The primary mechanism of laser therapy is photo biomodulation. Thermal effects are one component of high power laser therapy; however, the stimulation of cells and tissue repair is based on scientific research that has demonstrated positive physiological effects of infrared wavelengths on cellular organelles and electron chain molecules.
I already have ultrasound and electric muscle stimulation machines, why should I get Wellwrap?
Wellwrap delivers physiological benefits that no other modality can deliver. By stimulating adenosine
triphosphate (ATP) production and enhancing cell membrane permeability (along with other effects) Wellwrap therapy helps your patient’s injuries heal, rather than just masking the pain. Wellwrap therapy is not a thermal treatment; it is bio-stimulatory from photochemical reactions in cellular tissue. As such, Wellwrap can be used safely over metal implants and for patients with circulation and neuropathy problems.
