Class 4 Laser Therapy
Our Class 4 Laser service is designed to help promote tissue healing and reduce pain. This advanced technology uses laser light to penetrate deep into the tissue, resulting in increased circulation and a decrease in inflammation. Our Class 4 Laser service is a safe and effective treatment that can help you get back to feeling your best.

Effects Of Laser Therapy
1. Accelerated Tissue Repair And Cell Growth
Accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. Unlike other treatment modalities, only powerful Class 4 Laser Therapy can penetrate the bony patella and deliver healing energy to the articular surface between the underside of the patella and the femur. Cells of cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments and muscles are repaired faster as a result of exposure to high powered NIR or Near InfraRed Laser photons.
2. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation
Class 4 Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage and acute and chronic inflammatory processes. This point is paramount because fibrous (scar) tissue is less elastic, has poorer circulation, is more pain sensitive, weaker, and much more prone to re-injury and frequent exacerbation.
Laser light therapy has an anti-inflammatory effect, as it causes vasodilation and activation of the lymphatic drainage system. It deactivates 7 or the 9 enzymes that cause inflammation by up to 70%. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by biomechanical stress, trauma, overuse, or systemic conditions. Laser therapy easily promotes the movement of lymph, which also support faster healing.
Laser therapy has a multifaceted beneficial effect on pain relief. It activates production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins (dopamine and serotonin), and enkephalins from the brain and adrenal gland. Additionally it initiates the suppression of nerve signal transmission over unmyelinated c-fibers that transmit pain to the brain. This means that it support pain relief for musculoskeletal and nerve pain related issues simultaneously.
5. Improved Vascular Activity
Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries (angiogenesis) in damaged tissue that will speed up the healing process. Additionally, it has been noted in the literature that microcirculation increases secondary to vasodilation during laser treatment.
6. Increased Metabolic Activity
Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes that support intracellular metabolic activity.
7. Improved Nerve Function
Class 4 laser therapy machines accelerate the process of nerve cell regeneration and increases the amplitude of action potentials within nerve cells.
Stimulation of immunoglobulins and lymphocytes.
9. Stimulates Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points
Stimulates muscle trigger points to help release contracted tissues, helps restoration of muscular tonus and balance. Can also be used to quickly and easily treat acupoints and trace meridians to quickly open up blocked energy flow within numerous body systems from the macro to the micro-systems.
