Class IV Lasers are now commonly used in many Chiropractic and Medical practices. What they do is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
Our Class IV Laser therapy from K-Laser USA is one of the most powerful and effective lasers on the market. When used either alone, or in combination with other modalities such as chiropractic mobilization, it can have dramatic results.
How it Works:
During Laser Therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health. During each painless treatment laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Below is an great example of how quickly our Class IV laser helped get this patient who suffered significant trauma falling off a horse. You can see Pre and post 6 treatments in 10 days.
Whether you suffered a sprained ankle, whiplash, torn meniscus, rotator cuff injures or plain old road rash, laser therapy can help you heal faster and reduce pain.
