Why should I try laser therapy?
Class IV laser therapy is a noninvasive therapy useful in treating pain and inflammation that is common in a number of acute and chronic conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system. You can also benefit from this type of treatment if you have muscle or nerve damage from a degenerative condition or an injury.
Laser treatments can significantly reduce your level of pain and dramatically reduce inflammation that makes activity difficult. Laser therapy also provides long-term results by stimulating the development of new cells to repair tissue damage.
You may benefit from laser therapy for acute and chronic conditions like:
- Nerve pain
- Sports injuries
- Muscle spasms
Laser therapy is also a great solution for safely treating pain and inflammation after surgery.
How does laser therapy work?
The high-powered light energy emitted from Class IV laser technology reaches deep into your tissues, relaxing your muscles and stimulating your body’s own healing ability. Your doctor can adjust the laser to different wavelengths to address your specific needs.
As the laser energy hits the tissue, it stimulates your body to produce new, healthier cells that replace damaged areas of muscles and nerves. Laser therapy also reduces inflammation in the tissue that’s responsible for persistent pain and limited functionality in the affected area.
What are the benefits of laser therapy?
Laser treatments penetrate the surface of your skin, so you don’t need any incisions or other invasive procedures. Immediately after treatment, you can return to your usual activities.
You can also benefit from laser therapy for treating injuries or degenerative disease, as it increases blood flow and ensures a faster healing time of wounds and tissue damage. Laser treatments can also reduce scar tissue that causes pain or interferes with normal functionality.
Class IV laser therapy has other benefits, including:
- No side effects
- Drug-free treatment
- Pain-free procedure
- Significant pain reduction
