WHAT IS CLASS IV LASER THERAPY?
Using Class IV Laser Therapy, we at Healthwise Chiropractic are able to provide real results pain free and fast. The average deep tissue laser therapy session lasts only 5 to 10 minutes and most patients see results in only 3 to 5 visits. How it works is simple. The doctor determines the proper "dosage" of light to be used and the proper area to treat. The light is stimulates cellular activity and in turn initiates your own body's healing power that works to reduce inflammation after the treatment.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Class IV Laser Therapy reduces inflammation and initiates the natural healing process within your body. The treatment works by flooding your tissues with photons, thus increasing circulation by energizing the cells in the injured area. This is what ultimately helps reduce pain and inflammation and increase circulation to the treated area. It is important to note that because class IV laser therapy initiates the body's own natural healing processes, you may not realize all the benefits until 24 hours after your treatment.
