Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a medical therapy that uses light to treat a wide range of conditions. It has been used to help treat arthritis, painful joints, muscle and ligament repair, wound healing, back pain, and even nerve damage. This makes it particularly useful for treating acute and chronic pain, as well as regenerating tissue.
Unlike other types of PBM, Class IV laser therapy does not require direct contact with the skin. Instead, a handheld device is used to deliver laser beams directly to the affected area. This approach allows the practitioner to target specific areas of the body and avoid contact with healthy tissue.
During a Class IV laser therapy session, a practitioner will use the handheld device to direct laser beams into the area that needs to be treated. The light energy is absorbed by cells in the body and triggers a healing response. This response causes the release of natural chemicals such as endorphins and serotonin, which help reduce pain and inflammation. In addition, laser therapy helps to stimulate regenerative processes, allowing the body to repair itself and improve overall function.
Class IV laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions. It has been used successfully to treat chronic pain, sports injuries, arthritis, tendonitis, nerve damage, and more. In addition, it is non-invasive and does not require any downtime. For these reasons, many people turn to Class IV laser therapy as an alternative to traditional treatments such as surgery or medications.
By combining the power of laser light with safe and non-invasive techniques, Class IV laser therapy is quickly becoming a popular choice for those seeking relief from pain and other conditions.
