High Intensity Laser Therapy
High intensity laser therapy – also known as Class IV laser therapy – is a clinically proven and non-invasive treatment for pain and inflammation that provides a solution for those who are looking for an alternative to prescription drugs and surgery.
High Intensity Laser Therapy can have a positive impact on sport injuries and chronic pain. It is a safer and often more effective treatment because it reduces pain and inflammation at the source of the problem, rather than merely providing short-term relief from symptoms.
Designed to penetrate deeply into muscles and joints, high intensity laser therapy has the ability to treat a wide variety of conditions including:
- Sprains & Strains
- Low Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Neck Pain
- Disc Issues
- Tendonitis & Tendonosis
- Foot & Ankle Conditions
In addition to stimulating blood supply and oxygenating the injury site, high intensity laser therapy stimulates the power of cytochrome oxidase, an enzyme that aids in the healing and regeneration of tissue.
During laser treatment, patients feel a soothing warmth as laser energy enters the tissue. The mitochondria, or powerhouses of the cells absorb the energy and produce more ATP. ATP is the fuel that drives soft tissue regeneration, wound healing and pain reduction.
Laser treatments are quick and painless, lasting 5-20 minutes depending on the size and number of regions being treated. Results can be immediate – although the best observed results take effect after several treatment sessions. You will continue to benefit from the effects of laser therapy for up to 24 hours after treatment as its modulated cellular activity decreases your pain and inflammation.
