Class IV Laser Therapy
Class IV Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light — red and near-infrared — to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain relief, increased circulation, and decreased inflammation.

Laser Therapy is shown to stimulate tissue repair and growth. In the management of chronic pain, Class IV Laser Therapy provides dramatic results and is virtually free of side effects.
Conditions Class IV Laser Therapy Can Help With
Laser therapy has been around for many years and is an FDA-approved treatment for many painful and debilitating conditions.
With more power than its Class I, II, or III counterparts, Class IV laser therapy can treat large areas on patients rather than small points of contact, and treatments are much shorter in duration.
The lasers can treat both deep tissue and superficial conditions by triggering the body’s natural healing process and reducing inflammation and pain.
The therapy can aid in the recovery of many conditions, including:
- Neck pain
- Back pain (upper back & low back)
- Joint pain
- Shoulder pain
- Recovery from overuse
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sports injuries
- Soft tissue damage
- Muscle strains
What To Expect With Laser Treatments
During the therapy, patients report feeling a warm, relaxing sensation in the area being treated, with no pain. Over the next 18-24 hours after treatment, changes continue to happen at the cellular level, leading to increased circulation and decreased pain in the treated area.
Many patients notice results within three to five treatments, and often less.
Some benefits of laser therapy include:
- Less pain (both chronic and acute)
- Improved function (stretching, reaching, bending, etc.)
- Increased joint mobility
- Increased circulation
- Reduced recovery time
- Reduction of delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after activity
- A return to your normal activities & lifestyle
