Class IV Laser Therapy Benefits

Class IV lasers are a natural treatment choice for muscle aches, limited mobility and joint pain. Likewise, laser treatments help reduce pain and inflammation, while helping increase blood flow. Therefore, this results in improved range of motion and movement which is essential in many of our patient’s recovery process.

In addition, other benefits of class IV laser therapy include immunomodulation, tissue regeneration and promotion of wound healing. Laser therapy is a safe alternative to long-term use of medication, and has a limited risk for side effects.

How Do Class IV Lasers Work?

Class IV lasers work via photobiomodulation. “Photo” means light, “bio” means life and “modulation” means change. Laser therapies stimulate metabolic processes at the cellular level. Photobiomodulation provides energy to the cells causing a series of chemical changes that results in an acceleration of your body’s recovery process. This photochemical mechanism of action triggers a cascade of cellular actions that include:

  • Stimulation of ATP
  • Enhanced collagen synthesis
  • Stimulation of respiratory chain
  • Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
  • Increased levels of beta-endorphins and serotonin

InTouch Chiropractic  Review   Intouch Chiropractic    
Intouch Chiropractic is a wonderful practice. I have had experience with chiropractors before and Intouch has a drastically different approach to chiropractic adjustments than any other chiropractor I've been to before. Intouch chiropractic is especially beneficial in my case where the rough adjustments of traditional chiropractics could cause more harm then good. I highly recommend them especially if you have any sort of disability that would make traditional chiropractics hazardous.
