Class 4 Laser Therapy for Optimal Healing
LiteCure combines physics, engineering, and laser science to create a leading medical device that uses advanced laser technology for deep tissue therapy. By measuring the density of energy, the right amount of energy can be applied to injured tissues, which facilitates the healing of a wide range of conditions. The outcomes are consistently positive, which is why many patients turn to class 4 laser therapy for injuries before opting for surgery. Many practitioners are now recommending laser therapy for acute conditions before opting for surgical intervention because of the benefits. The therapy sessions are limited to approximately 10 minutes, and they are completely painless, which means the only recovery the patient experiences is from the injury itself.
Enhancing Natural Healing Processes
What class 4 laser therapy does is enhance the natural healing process. LiteCure is a high wattage laser, which, when compared to low-wattage lasers, leads to faster treatment times and better results. Because of the class 4 status, these lasers can treat deep and superficial tissue conditions. These conditions include:
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Ligament and muscle strains and sprains
- Shoulder and back injuries
- Osteoarthritis, arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis
- Deep edema
- Sports injuries
- Auto accident and work injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Diabetic foot ulcers
This isn’t an exhaustive list; many conditions benefit from class 4 laser therapy, giving patients a better quality of life than they would have otherwise. They recover faster, reporting better mobility and less stiffness not long after therapy begins.
Benefits of Class 4 Laser Therapy
There are several benefits to class 4 therapy, such as tissue regeneration, pain reduction, and the reduction of inflammation. Tissue regeneration due to damaged cells being more receptive to light energy tends to be the first effects that are reported. When the tissue starts to regenerate, the benefits begin to show. Patients see increased collagen production, better lymphatic flow, improved cell metabolism, and stronger tissue. Even nerves can regenerate so that their function improves.
Research has shown these benefits and more. More than 100 studies have been completed showing that laser therapy helps injuries heal faster, strengthens tissues, improves blood flow, and provides relief for many pain issues. Even the immune response has been shown to improve. These factors alone make class 4 laser therapy using LiteCure something to consider seriously. If your doctor mentions surgery to repair an acute issue, you can talk to him or her about the desire to have class 4 laser therapy before opting for surgery. You may not have to have any type of surgery at all.
The Scope of Treatment
The scope of treatment depends on the exact condition. Some conditions require more treatments than others do. The average can be up to 15. You may receive treatment daily, or you may receive it a few times per week. The frequency decreases as improvement is experienced. Many patients opt for chiropractic care in addition to their therapy. It is entirely up to the patient what other therapies to use while receiving class 4 laser therapy.
