Class IV Laser Therapy
Class IV laser therapy refers to those lasers where the power is .5 watts or higher. This laser therapy is an FDA-approved, safe and non-invasive alternative to surgery and drugs for many patients dealing with back pain, joint pain, and other soft tissue damage.
Laser therapy has been around for many years, in use as an FDA-approved treatment for many painful and debilitating conditions. With more power than its Class I, II, or IIIb counterparts, Class IV laser therapy can treat large areas on patients rather than small points of contact, and treatments are much shorter in duration. The lasers can treat both deep tissue and superficial conditions by triggering the body’s natural healing process and reducing inflammation and pain.

Conditions Class IV Laser Therapy Can Help With
The therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that is an alternative to drugs or surgery that can aid in the recovery of many conditions, including:
- Neck pain
- Back pain (upper back & low back)
- Joint pain
- Shoulder pain
- Recovery from overuse
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sports injuries
- Soft tissue damage
- Muscle strains
During the therapy, patients report feeling a warm, relaxing sensation in the area being treated, with no pain. Over the next 18-24 hours after treatment, changes continue to happen at the cellular level, leading to increased circulation and decreased pain in the treated area. Many patients notice results within three to five treatments, and often less.
Some benefits of class IV laser therapy include:
- Less pain (both chronic and acute)
- Improved function (stretching, reaching, bending, etc.)
- Increased joint mobility
- Increased circulation
- Reduced recovery time
- Reduction of delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after activity
- A return to your normal activities & lifestyle
If you are looking for a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical option to reduce pain and swelling so that you can get back to the activities you love, Class IV laser therapy is the answer. For an optimal therapeutic outcome, enough of the laser's light has to reach the affected area, the damaged tissue within the body. This depends on the wavelength of the light, the power of the equipment, and other technological advancements utilized by Class IV lasers to offer advanced, consistent results for patients dealing with many types of painful conditions.
