And each of these conditions can be treated efficiently without any pain or damage to the body!
How Class IV Laser Therapy Works
Laser therapy has been a medical tool for some time now. Depending on the wavelength of laser energy used and the manner of application, its uses can stimulate cellular activities and healing, or attack and eradicate fungus within the nails.
With Remy’s Class IV system, we have these wide variety of applications within one unit. We can adjust the lasers and manner of application to fit a wide range of patient needs. And since it does not damage healthy tissue, require the use of drugs, and has extremely low complication risk, laser treatment can easily be recommended as a primary or supporting part of an overall treatment plan for almost anyone.
Several laser treatment sessions are often scheduled out over a course of weeks, largely depending on the type and severity of the condition being addressed.
Let’s further explore how our Class IV laser can be helpful in various situations.
Laser Treatment for Acute Injuries and Pain
Laser therapy has frequently been a treatment option for soft tissue injuries such as tendinitis, strains, sprains, and plantar fasciitis, among others.
In such cases, laser energy is directed into the site of an injury. This triggers several beneficial responses from the body, including:
- Increased cellular reproduction and growth
- Increased blood flow to the area (bringing more of what cells need for repairs)
- Decreased inflammation
- Decreased pain
By increasing comfort and accelerating healing, we can help patients get back to the activities they love with fewer potential complications.
