What Class IV Laser Therapy Does
Class IV laser therapy by a qualified chiropractor involves directing an intense beam of laser light to tissues. The goal of this treatment is to reduce pain and inflammation and to accelerate the healing process. Laser therapy harnesses light rays to cause healing effects on injured tissue. It is somehow similar to how our bodies produce vitamin D from exposure to the sun or photosynthesis in plants.
The light energy penetrates the skin to cause a process that enhances the body's natural regenerative functions. This therapy uses a monochromatic beam of light to penetrate tissues and produce positive effects.
Benefits of Class IV Laser Therapy
During treatment, it causes the following effects on nerve cells and nociceptors.
- Increases the threshold of stimulation
- Reduces neuronal impulses,
- Increases release of tissue endorphins
As a result, it decreases your pain perception, giving you some relief.
Exposure to this laser causes a decrease in the release of prostaglandins and inflammatory mediators. It also increases macrophage activity and leukocytic phagocytosis. Also, it dilates lymphatic glands to reduce edema. All these actions work together to decrease any inflammation and relieve you from discomfort.
Class IV laser therapy leads to increased:
- Blood flow from dilation of blood vessels
- Angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels)
- Capillary production
