What is Class IV Laser Therapy?

Since 2003, chiropractors have been using Class IV Laser Therapy, an FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment modality that helps heal musculoskeletal injuries and relieves pain. Laser Therapy, also known as “photobiomodulation,” is a safe and effective procedure that utilizes red and near-infrared wavelengths of light to generate cellular metabolic activity that can foster therapeutic healing effects in the body. Laser therapy affects the cellular receptors of specific parts of the body to facilitate the repair and healing of injured and damaged tissues. Clinical studies have shown that laser therapy improves collagen production, lymphatic response, nerve regeneration, enzyme response, and vasodilation (decrease in blood pressure), and can facilitate repair of the bone and soft tissues. Laser therapy can also boost cellular metabolism, reduce inflammation, accelerate wound healing, decrease scar tissue formation, improve lymphatic drainage and blood flow, stimulate immune response, and alleviate muscle spasms.

Class IV Laser Therapy utilizes heat to penetrate and conduct energy into the muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments. This process helps stimulate the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which facilitates and energizes the cellular healing process. Class IV Laser Therapy also promotes the creation of new blood vessels, a process known as angiogenesis. Class IV Laser Therapy is a painless, 15-20 minute treatment repeated over time that is used to address acute and chronic injuries that can include muscle soreness, stiffness in the joints, and pain. Drs. Michael and Ethan Zmoos in Cedar Rapids, IA, frequently recommend this procedure for patients experiencing arthritis, Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, wrist pain, knee pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, degenerative joint conditions, Fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, and other conditions.
