When pain prevents you from completing your daily activities, you need a solution that provides lasting results – and we’re here to help. At Phoenix Integrated Medical, we offer class IV laser therapy treatments designed to help your body heal fast. Sports injuries, autoimmune diseases, and many other acute and chronic conditions are no match for our powerful lasers, allowing you to enjoy your everyday activities once again. Here’s what you need to know about getting this treatment done at our clinic.
What Is Class IV Laser Therapy?
Also known as photobiomodulation, or PBMT, class IV laser therapy uses infrared lasers to relieve pain, promote healing, and improve your overall well-being. The photons penetrate the skin to stimulate photosensitive cells and increase their activity levels.
While that happens, the cells receive more oxygen and nutrients, helping improve their function and activate the body’s natural healing process. When performed twice a week for 10 minutes per session, the treatments help improve circulation and reduce inflammation. Acute and chronic pain relief follows, potentially helping you regain your mobility and range of motion as a result.
Conditions Treated with Laser Therapy
Conditions treated using class IV laser therapy include:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Carpal tunnel
Acute soft-tissue injuries from sports, car accidents, and other traumatic incidents respond favorably to laser therapy as well. Regular bi-weekly treatments can speed up healing times while helping you feel better in the meantime.
Benefits of Class IV Laser Therapy
When you get laser therapy at our clinic, you’ll benefit in the following ways:
- Pain-Free Relief: Laser therapy provides great results without any pain or discomfort. In fact, many people find the treatments relaxing.
- No Adverse Effects: Class IV laser therapy does not have any known side effects or other adverse effects to worry about – not even with repeat treatments.
- Non-Surgical Approach: With class IV laser therapy, it’s possible to help your body heal without the need for surgery or other invasive treatments.
- Reduces the Need for Medication: When you can get relief from pain and swelling through laser therapy, it’s often possible to reduce your usage of prescription and over-the-counter medications.
- Speeds Up Healing Times: Laser therapy helps your body heal fast, so you can resume a healthy lifestyle and get back to handling your obligations and enjoying your days.
Class IV laser therapy is a truly effective way to promote healing, relieve pain, and take back control of your life. Your provider can help you decide if this is the right treatment for your needs. You just have to come into the clinic for a consultation appointment. During that visit, your doctor will perform an exam and discuss your symptoms to help you create the ideal treatment plan.
What to Expect During Your Laser Therapy Visits
After your consultation appointment, you’ll be given time to decide if you want to move forward with class IV laser therapy treatments. If you would like to complete the treatments, then it’s time to book your visits. For the best results, you will need to come into the clinic twice a week for 10-minute sessions. At each visit, you can expect to be in the clinic for up to 30 minutes to account for check-in, wait times, and scheduling additional appointments.
During the treatment, you’ll only feel a soothing warmth from the treatment wand. The warmth often spreads through the tissues around the target area, helping jumpstart the pain relief process right away. Inflammation will continue to decrease over the next 24 hours, which can further reduce your pain levels.
As for the healing process, you’ll likely start to notice results after about two to three treatments. You may find that the pain relief lasts longer after each treatment or notice an improvement in your range of motion. Your ability to get around without discomfort may improve as well. Additional laser therapy sessions will build upon those effects to keep you feeling your best week after week.
