Here at Beyond Chiropractic in Altamonte Springs, we live up to our name by offering a variety of holistic healing services that go beyond the standard range of treatments. One of the most advanced of these services is a technology known as Class IV laser therapy. If you’ve sustained a soft tissue injury or are burdened by a chronic pain condition, this state-of-the-art technology could be exactly what you need to overcome your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

The Many Benefits of Class IV Laser Therapy

While it might sound like science fiction, certain kinds of laser light are known to have profound healing properties. But not all forms of laser care involve the high-power cutting lasers used so effectively by surgeons. At lower frequencies, a laser beam can go right through the top tissues of the body without causing any damage or discomfort, directing healing energy at the tissues underneath. This is the principle behind laser therapy. The energy of the amplified light stimulates cellular “organs” called mitochondria to produce more of a substance called ATP. The cells can then use this ATP as an energy source to repair and reproduce themselves more quickly and completely. At the same time, blood flow is increased at the treatment site, which naturally reduces edema and eases pain.

Even within the world of laser therapy, there are different classes of healing lasers. The older generation of Class III lasers was effective to an extent, but they were also limited in their ability to treat deeper tissues or wider tissue areas. Our chiropractor in Altamonte Springs has opted to invest in a Class IV laser that can provide more thorough soft tissue treatment for better results.

Treatment and Symptom Management for a Variety of Conditions

Class IV laser therapy makes a superb complement to our chiropractic treatments and other non-surgical therapies. Undergoing laser therapy sessions is easy, painless, and convenient to schedule (with sessions taking just a few minutes in some cases). We may prescribe this form of care for:

  • Chronic pain conditions
  • Tendinitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Back or neck pain
  • Extremity joint pain
  • Nerve damage
  • Fractures
  • Post-operative recovery

We may recommend a course of laser therapy as part of your personalized holistic care program, alongside massage therapy, electrotherapy, physical therapy and other techniques.
