How It Works
Class IV Lasers are used to deliver laser light into the body in order to increase circulation, decrease swelling, reduce pain, and enhance tissue repair. The laser light increases metabolic activity in your body’s cells, which in turn draws nutrients and oxygen to the treated area, promoting healing and restoration of function.
For patients with chronic and acute pain, this treatment can be transformative.
Depending on your condition and symptoms, treatments can range from daily to two or three times a week, tailing off as your symptoms and pain decrease. Treatment usually takes less than 10 minutes. Improvement may be felt immediately, though it usually requires multiple treatments for a noticeable change.
Effectiveness and Side-Effects
Laser pain therapy has been in use for decades and its efficacy has been recorded in thousands of published studies.
Side effects are very rare, and usually involve agitation of old injured areas.
