Class 4 laser therapy stimulates the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which drives many of the processes within our cells. This increased production of ATP helps speed up the healing process within cells. Class 4 laser therapy may sound futuristic but it has become a standard of care for many musculoskeletal injuries. Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. The light that is transmitted via the laser helps stimulate certain processes within the body that help provide relief to symptoms including pain, swelling, and limited range of motion.
There are different classes of lasers like the Class 3 laser which is a cold laser whereas the Class 4 laser produces heat. We decided to purchase a Class 4 laser because we are the team chiropractor for the Baltimore Orioles and that laser is a part of their treatment protocol. It has been a staple for the Orioles and now we’re able to offer this specialized treatment to all of our patients so they can take advantage of the wide variety of Class 4 laser therapy benefits.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments are generally safe when completed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist. However, anyone considering the procedure should be aware that laser skin resurfacing complications (such as abnormal healing and infection, though quite rare) do arise.
The benefits of class 4 laser therapy include reduced pain and swelling as well as improved range of motion but a class 4 laser has some very interesting effects that we don’t notice as obviously. A class 4 laser increases tissue regeneration which is why you heal faster but it also accelerates soft tissue and bone repair. This kind of laser therapy can also improve nerve regeneration & function as well as impact your cells to increase cell metabolism, enzymatic responses, collagen production, and promote angiogenesis (the creation of new blood vessels). So yes, you walk away from class 4 laser therapy feeling better but the therapy continues to work on the cellular level to improve your musculoskeletal health after you leave the office.
We use class 4 laser therapy on a range of issues including chronic knee pain or arthritis, chronic Achilles tendonitis, elbow pain or tendonitis in the elbow, and chronic wrist pain. We are able to use the class 4 laser on a wide range of injury sites and extremities to provide relief to our patients.
