What is Class IV deep tissue laser therapy?

Laser Therapy, or "photobiomodulation", 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.  Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970's.  Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is being used extensively in the United States.


Laser Therapeutic effects

During each painless treatment laser energy increases circulation , drawing water , oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates and 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.


Cellular effects of Laser Therapy

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.
