What is Class 4 warm laser therapy?
This kind of therapy has become a standard of care for many issues and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. With Class 4 warm laser therapy, certain wavelengths of light are used to provide therapeutic effects for a patient, like pain relief, inflammation relief, and improved range of motion. The Class 4 laser produces heat, whereas the Class 3 laser produces cold. Commonly, the therapy is used by athletic trainers in NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, FIFA, and Olympic teams. The therapy works for these people, so it will likely work for you too! You should be as optimistic as we are that the therapy will work for you.
What are the benefits of laser therapy?
Generally, the results of Class 4 warm laser therapy are reduced pain, reduced swelling, and improved range of motion. There are other interesting effects as well, such as tissue regeneration for faster healing! Soft tissue and bone repair may be possible too, as may improved nerve regeneration, improved nerve function, increased cell metabolism, greater collagen production, and the creation of new blood vessels.
The therapy actually works on a cellular level, so it’s not just simple warmth therapy! What you’ll feel during therapy, though, is simple warmth and no pain. You’ll find your treatments very therapeutic, and you’ll find the effects long-lasting.
How long does each treatment take?
Typically, a treatment with the Class 4 warm laser will take about 5 to 15 minutes, that’s all. This varies depending on the condition and its severity. After about 3 to 6 treatments total within a 2 to 3-week period, you should be feeling much better! Results vary, but you should still expect them.
