Laser therapy uses very specific wavelengths to manage a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. It has been shown effective in various clinical studies across the globe. By healing soft tissues, class-4 laser therapy can reduce both acute & persisting discomfort. Class-4 laser primarily works by speeding up the body's natural ability to mend itself after experiencing damage. It has been shown to effectively speed up the body's natural defenses and improve their effectiveness.

Conditions that we can manage with class-4 laser
Laser therapy penetrates the skin driving healing energy (photons) into the tissues. The main therapeutic effect of laser therapy is to stimulate the repair and healing process of injured tissue. It has also demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defenses while reducing pain. The effect is photochemical (like photosynthesis in plants). The laser aids in the production of ATP thereby providing the cell with more energy which in turn means the cell is in optimum condition to play its part in the natural healing process.
Many therapeutic advantages can be attained with Class-4 laser therapy. Starting with highly reactive diodes, electromagnetic energy is absorbed by the body in the form of millions of photons. Multiple factors, including the patient, the problem being treated, the laser power output, and the length of process, greatly affect the amount and depth of penetration.
Recent studies have shown that class-4 laser therapy increases ATP synthesis (a molecular act). It is done by stimulating a cellular enzyme that is localized in the tissue being treated. All living cells rely on a chemical energy source called adenosine triphosphate. The conditions that we can manage with class-4 laser are –
- Bone spurs
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Tennis Elbow
- Golfers Elbow
- Rotator Cuff Strains
- TMJ & CTS
- Herniated Discs
- Stress Fractures
- Runner knee
- Ligament injury
- Hip Pain
- Neck and back discomfort
- Muscle and joints Strains
- Achilles tendinitis
- Nerve disorders
- And so on…
Laser-4 therapy & its biological effects
Class-4 Laser treatment stimulates the adrenal glands & brain to release large quantities of endorphins, which block pain signals. Using a laser to treat wounds will hasten recovery by dramatically increasing the production of new capillaries in the affected area. Class-4 Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue. Increased production of enzymes is a direct result of laser therapy, which speeds up the recovery time for damaged nerves. Trigger points in muscles can be stimulated with our Class-4 laser treatment, resulting in the relaxation of the surrounding muscles and fascia.
