Therapeutic laser technology is highly effective in the healing of damaged tissue. It’s more than just treating the symptoms. Rather, Class IV Laser Therapy promotes optimal functioning of tissue at the cellular level which accelerates healing and improves recovery capabilities. Class IV Laser Therapy is instrumental in treating chronic pain and supporting recovery from injury or surgery. This technique can be used in conjunction with chiropractic therapy and other treatments to help patients achieve optimal wellness and peak performance.
What Is Class IV Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that helps patients recover from pain and injury. The energy in the laser elicits a photochemical response in damaged tissue in order to achieve the desired results. While Class IV Laser Therapy is a newer treatment, having been approved by the FDA in 2003, it is the best standard of care today for musculoskeletal injuries.
How Does Class IV Laser Therapy At McWhorter CNR Work?
Class IV Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to improve healing time, reduce pain, and increase circulation. Our Class IV laser is operated by Dr. McWhorter who is widely recognized as one of the leading experts on treatments using laser technology. During the treatment, which is often 15 minutes or less, the laser interacts with the cellular level of tissue to increase the metabolic activity and encourage the transportation of nutrients across the cell membrane. It is this process that produces ATP, or cellular energy, which brings the benefits of Class IV Laser Therapy.
The beauty of Class IV Laser Therapy is that it is an entirely non-invasive treatment option that is also painless and has limited-to-no side effects. The nature of the treatment process ensures that it is non-addictive, while offering scientifically-backed results in the treatment of chronic pain.
