Class IV Laser Therapy

Written By Martinez Chiropractic Center on October 16, 2017

Sick of suffering from chronic pain and inflammation? Class IV laser therapy might be the treatment option you never knew you needed to heal your body.   

What Is Class IV Laser Therapy?

As a noninvasive pain treatment technique, laser therapy is cleared by the FDA and endorsed by APTA, WHO, and IASP as a way to reduce inflammation and the pain it causes. The treatment works by stimulating your body’s healing mechanisms and promoting increased cellular activity. During the procedure, a warm laser penetrates through several centimeters of skin to reduce inflammation and speed up the restorative healing process in your cells.  

In general, deep tissue treatments are quick, lasting just five to ten minutes, and puts your body in a healing state that actively reduces inflammation for the next 24 hours. Most patients notice results after three to five sessions, though some might experience improvements almost immediately. 

Thanks to its safety and versatility, class IV laser therapy can be performed anywhere on the body and is used for a variety of medical problems, including headaches, sprains and strains, and even post-surgical healing. 

Who Can Benefit from Class IV Laser Therapy?

Anyone who suffers from muscle spasms or pain in their knees, elbows, feet or wrists or back is a candidate for class IV laser therapy. Because the procedure is surgery-free and speeds up post-op healing, professional athletes especially benefit from class IV laser therapy. 

For this reason, our Kendall chiropractic location offers LiteCure treatment, the brand preferred by athletic trainers.
