Pain can affect all areas of the body, including deep inside the tissues. This pain often requires surgery, although that can lead to other complications. When other treatments cannot treat these issues without penetrating the skin or performing surgery, come to Integrative Medical Group of Texas, where we have Class 4 Laser Therapy! We can help alleviate your pain without surgical means!
What are Class 4 Cold Laser treatments?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique used to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. Class 4 laser therapy can be safely used as a supplement or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment has clearance from the FDA and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Depending on the condition being treated, laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes. Class 4 laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. Typically, you will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered. Most patients see results after 4-6 short treatments.
How effective is Class 4 cold laser therapy?
Different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area during this procedure. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration from the reaction caused by the red and near-infrared light.
Superficial tissue is commonly treated with wavelengths between 600 and 700 nanometers (nm). For deeper penetration, wavelengths between 780 and 950 nm are used.
The procedure is painless and noninvasive, although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin. You’ll feel no vibration or heat and there will be no sound. Each treatment typically takes only a few minutes.
Growing in traditional medical practices, the use of cold laser therapy is used as a complementary or alternative therapy. It’s approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a number of conditions.
When performed under the care of a doctor or qualified practitioner, cold laser therapy is considered safe. On the plus side, it’s also noninvasive and painless. It doesn’t require medication or other preparation either.
How long does it take for class 4 cold laser therapy to work?
Depending on the size of the area being treated, the typical course of treatment is 10 minutes. Particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain, acute conditions may be treated daily. When treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, more chronic problems respond better. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.
After the very first treatment, you may feel improvement in your condition. Results are often felt after 2 to 4 sessions as each treatment is cumulative. Treatments take just a few minutes; however, the therapeutic effect continues to sooth and heal long after you leave our office.
