Class IV laser therapy is used for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing, and decrease inflammation. When light source is placed against the skin, photons penetrate several centimeters down and are absorbed by the mitochondria (the energy producing part of a cell).
This energy results in the restoration of normal cell function. The main goal of laser therapy is to stimulate the cell to perform its natural functions, but at an enhanced rate.
Class Laser IV therapy utilizes an infra-red electromagnetic energy. In contrast to “cold lasers,” which provide no feeling or sensation, high power diode laser therapy provides a warm, smoothing feeling. Class IV laser therapy is nearly 5x faster than cold laser therapy, and only takes a few minutes to get the maxiumum affect.
In the management of chronic pain, Class IV Laser Therapy can provide dramatic results, is FDA approved, and is non-invasive and virtually free of side effects.
Class IV laser therapy is supported by hundreds of scientific tests, documents, and studies. It is the most dependable and result-producing of all therapies, and produces no ionizing radiation.
