Summus Class IV Laser Therapy
Class IV Laser Therapy is a state-of-the-art treatment for tissue damage. Approved by the FDA in 2003, Class IV Laser Therapy has since been embraced by doctors and patients alike across America. At 904 Chiropractic Injury Center, we have been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care, massage therapy, and laser therapy with our patients for many years.
Laser therapy differs from traditional massage therapy in that it uses non-invasive laser light to encourage healing on a cellular level. Summus Class IV lasers encourage cell regeneration, which in turn leads to tissue healing. By working at the cellular level, a chiropractor can use class IV laser therapy to repair tissue in a thorough and non-invasive manner.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
Laser light rids cells of waste, promoting the healing of tissues including tendons, muscles, and ligaments. When your cells are processing waste efficiently, they can regenerate more easily. In particular, class IV laser therapy causes fibroblasts to increase. These cells secrete collagen, which is essential for tissue healing.
Cell regeneration also depends on blood flow. When your circulation is good, your cells can heal and reproduce more quickly. Class IV laser therapy promotes capillary growth and temporarily widens existing capillaries. Additionally, Class IV Laser Therapy prevents the formation of scar tissue and reduces nerve sensitivity, which are the most common causes of tissue pain.
Is Class IV Laser Therapy Safe?
Many of our patients seek chiropractic care for natural and non-invasive pain relief. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to identify the root cause of your pain and immobility. After the source of your discomfort has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan to address it. This treatment plan will likely involve Class IV Laser Therapy.
