The Advantages Of Laser Therapy

The Advantages Of Laser Therapy

The biggest advantage of class IV laser therapy over other types of treatment, like acupuncture or massage therapy, is the therapeutic properties of the laser itself.

Simply put, the light causes a series of changes that results in the body healing itself, rather than just being a temporary fix.

If you remember, lasers work by impacting how cells function. It also restores injured tissue deep within your body as well. First, damaged cells absorb the light. Then, they are energized by photonic energy. As a result, the cells become supercharged and speed up your body’s natural reparative processes

Most notably, laser light produces the most benefit where it’s needed most, meaning it’s going to target the area of your body where you’re experiencing pain and swelling.

In fact, studies show that impaired cells have a stronger response to laser light than healthy cells.

Treatments like massage or acupuncture aren’t able to go much beyond the surface of your skin. Class IV lasers, on the other hand, are able to reach tissue deeper in the body. They provide high enough doses of light to effectively target and travel through muscles, bones, and joints.

Above all else, the science behind laser is what helps make it a superior treatment option. You aren’t simply masking the symptoms, you’re healing them at the source.

Laser light actually promotes cellular metabolism, which is responsible for tissue healing. Ultimately, laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment option. More importantly, it’s far less invasive than surgery and drugs.
