LASER Therapy LightForce Class IV LASER
The Deep Tissue Class IV Hot LASER works by means of light energy. This Hot LASER penetrates deep into the tissues, stimulating the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain.
Our Certified Athletic Therapists are specifically trained to use the Class IV LASER to reach both deep and superficial tissues involving injuries such as ligament sprains and muscular strains, arthritis, calcified muscles and fibrotic adhesions, as well as intra-articular tissues inside of the joints. Within a few sessions the Class IV LASER allows many conditions to vastly improve. With treatment times of as little as 5 to 15 minutes, often patients find immediate, soothing warmth and relief that improves with each session.
This unique therapy can be used as:
- Adjunct to prescription drugs
- Substitute for surgery
- Pre-surgery treatment
- Post-surgery treatment to accelerate healing
- Long-term pain management system
- Acute injury treatment
Your initial LASER appointment consists of a one hour assessment and treatment where the practitioner will assess your area of concern and provide LASER therapy treatment. Subsequent treatments will range from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.
