Class 4 Laser Therapy
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photo-bio-stimulation
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
Class 4 deep-tissue laser therapy can be a vital part of any treatment protocol. Whenever you have an injury, you have chemical damage to a cell. In order to maximize healing, deep-tissue laser therapy aims to photo-biostimulate (regenerate) chemically damaged cells. This therapy actually excites the kinetic energy within cells by transmitting healing energy known as photons. The skin absorbs these photons via a photo-chemical effect, not photo-thermal; therefore it does not cause heat damage to the tissues. Once photons reach the cells of the body, they promote a cascade of cellular activities. It can ignite the production of enzymes, stimulate mitochondria, increase vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, ATP synthesis, and elevate collagen formation substances to prevent the formation of scar tissue. This is a critical step in reducing long-term disabling chronic myofascial pain syndromes and joint mobility issues.
Some of the Physiological benefits of Class 4 laser Therapy:
- Increase blood flow to low blood tissue like tendons and ligaments to aid in bringing oxygen and nutrients to the tissue for repair.
- Increase Internal tissue temperature.
- Reduce Inflammation
- Allow energy to assist in repair of injured tissue.
- Speed recovery time from injuries.
- Decrease toxins production.
