What is Class IV laser therapy?
by Teresa Richter, ND
You may not have heard of cold laser therapy before, or you may have tried it and not gotten the results you had hoped for. Different classes of lasers classify them into their strength. Class III which until recently was the standard for cold laser therapy operates on less than 500 miliwatts,. A class IV laser for therapeutic purposes operates on greater than 500 miliwatts. This is beneficial because the more watts that are delivered stimulates more healing to an area in less treatment time. Meaning you spend less time having the laser stimulate an area, and less trips to the doctor to have it treated. Class IV laser have greater physiological effects that result in biochemical changes with the cells.
Simply put laser therapy
1. Reduces pain
2. Reduces inflammation
3. Increases wound and tissue healing
4. Stimulates regeneration of peripheral nerves
5. Reduces scar tissue formation
There are many complex biochemical reactions that happen within the cells that are stimulated by the laser to make this possible. Laser therapy increases ATP production (energy production within each cell), angiogenesis (formation of new capillaries to damaged tissues), reduction of inflammatory prostaglandins while increasing anti-inflammatory prostaglandin release, stimulation of immune cells, increased endorphin relief, increased nitric oxide production, and blocking of C-fibers (nerve fibers carrying pain signals to the brain).
Laser therapy is painless, drug free, and a surgery free option for treating your chronic pain conditions. It is also very effective for increasing healing and reducing recovery time following surgery or after an acute injury. It is extremely effective for diabetic peripheral neuropathy, increasing sensation and temperature, and decreasing pain after just a few treatments. Laser therapy also quickly and effectively relieves pain for plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sciatica, sprains, strains, low back pain, disc issues, shoulder pain, neck pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, onychomycosis (toe-nail fungus) and many more conditions.
