The term Class IV laser may seem a bit futuristic to you but the clinical results and backing by research are clear. It is providing pain relief, decreasing inflammation, and stimulating healing faster than any therapy modality to ever hit the manual therapy world. The premise behind this cold laser is applying photons of light at sufficient power and in a specific wavelength in order to get the energy deep into the body’s tissues where pain generators hide out. When the laser light gets to a damaged area of tissue the cells are stimulated to start producing energy again in the form of ATP. This “restart” of the cell is where the real results come in because cells with sufficient energy have the great power to repair.
Laser therapy has been utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses, and doctors since the 1970’s. Laser therapy has been used extensively in the US since FDA clearance in 2002. At In Motion Spine & Joint Center, we have been using LiteCure’s model of Class IV laser since December of 2011. When combined with chiropractic manipulation, Active Release Technique®, Graston Technique®, and corrective rehabilitation exercises we have seen results on difficult cases in a shorter amount of time than ever before.
