Class IV Laser Therapy

Benefits of Laser Therapy?
Enhanced Tissue Healing: Laser treatments enhance blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, release oxygen and nutrients from the bloodstream into the tissues and improve cellular metabolic activity to produce more cellular energy. With more energy available, damaged cells can repair and regenerate more quickly and with better quality.
Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: Photons of laser light penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell, so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result, the cells of tendons, ligaments, bones, nerves, and muscles are repaired faster.
Modulating Inflammation: Laser treatments modulate inflammation by causing vasodilation and activation of the lymphatic drainage system. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation. Laser treatments do not suppress inflammation as do non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Rather, Class IV laser therapy treatments help the body progress through the stages of inflammation more efficiently.
Improved Vascular Activity: Laser therapy will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, which speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly, and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis which causes temporary vasodilation, an increase in the diameter of blood vessels. More blood flow equals faster healing and less pain.
Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser therapy will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
Immune System Regulation: Laser therapy can increase both the local immune system response and have a positive effect on the whole-body immune response. Increased circulation and enhanced cellular energy production will enhance the activity of immune system cells, helping to reduce and fight infection.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Laser therapy?
It's an FDA-cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration.
How does it work?
Laser energy increases circulation by drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain.
What does a treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally, the patient feels mild, soothing warmth, or tingling sensations. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Are there any side effects?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally, some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How often should I receive laser therapy?
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. Chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering off to once every week or two as improvement is seen.
How long before I feel results?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. However, sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that the condition is not improving. Each treatment is cumulative, and results are often felt after 3 or 4 treatments.
