Using heat, Class IV Laser Therapy, unlike other laser treatments, is a safe, painless, non-invasive method for pain reduction, tissue and nerve repair without drugs or negative side effects. Class IV lasers emit white, red and infra-red light from a handheld device placed over the affected area. Not only is the flow of nutrient rich blood to that area enhanced but the lasers also penetrate the skin tissue with photo-tonic light energy which reaches to the deep tissues. This process activates the enzymes and metabolic functions of the cells of the target area, stimulating proper cell functioning. The end result is rapid regeneration, tissue repair (both hard and soft), reduced scar formation and, ultimately, elimination of pain and symptoms at a faster rate of recovery.
Its many applications include, but are not limited to:
• Neck and back pain
• Shoulder/rotator cuff injuries
• Elbow tendonitis
• Wrist and hand conditions including arthritis or overuse syndromes
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Knee pain
• Shin splints
• Sprains, strains and muscle tears
• Achilles tendon injuries
• Plantar fasciitis/heel pain
(Contraindications to laser therapy are few and can be further discussed with your doctor).
The laser treatment is basically painless, often being perceived as a warm sensation over the affected area. The number of laser sessions required varies between patients and is also dependent upon whether Laser therapy is being prescribed as the sole treatment modality or as an adjunct in combination with other treatments. Some patients notice improvement even with their first treatment while others experience more subtle and gradual improvements with repeated treatments. The effects of laser therapy, much like physical therapy and acupuncture, are cumulative with the beneficial effects building session to session.
