Class IV Laser Therapy

Class IV laser therapy is not only a painless way to accellerate the healing process, it is a pleasant and relaxing process in its own right. Working to reduce inflammation, optimise local circulation and cellular functioning this modality offers a uniquely patient friendly way to target the source of your back pain by optimising the healing taking place at the injury site.

Sometimes confused with surgical decompression, spinal decompression through IDD Therapy is a non invasive way to create more space or “decompress” the spine, taking pressure of damaged discs, helping restore hydration to the discs & ultimately improving the healing that’s trying to take place.  

Why Is Class IV Laser An Irreplaceable Treatment?

It provides a safe, effective and repeatable means of providing treatment to the area that is injured. Unlike other treatments that either work indirectly on the cause, or require movement to work, this form of intervention is done with precision and requires no movement on the part of the patient. Similar to Spinal Decompression patients will often doze off while treatment is taking place!

The nice thing about this form of healing therapy is that it matters little what the injury is, only that there is tissue damage. Treatment targets damaged tissues, be they disc material, ligaments of facet joint capsules to promote and accelerate normal and complete healing.


Delivering Targeted Healing

When we have an injury movement of injured tissues evokes pain, sometimes this is more severe than others. The power of Class IV Laser Therapy is in the delivery of specific wavelengths of light to target tissues and the surrounding area. Just like when light hits the surface of your skin, it stimulates a process in specific cells called melanocytes to release more melanin, other wavelengths can trigger helpful healing effects in the body.

Increases Local Blood Flow

The 970nm stimulates an increase flow in circulation to the area. This elevated blood flow aids in the delivery of nutrition and oxygen as well as elimination of waste & congestion.

Increase Tissue Oxygenation

The 905nm targets haemoglobin in your red blood cells ramping up the release of oxygen into the target tissue area to help the cells “breathe” important for the next steps.

Accelerate Cell Healing & Regeneration

The 800nm affects enzymes inside the mitochondria, the engine of your cells, making them produce energy faster from oxygen. This energy is used for all cell processes.

Reduced Scarring

The 660nm targets the surface tissue cells creating a healthy skin to resist pathogens whilst also reducing scarring at local wound sites.

8 Ways Laser Helps

Elevate Vascular Activity & Reduce Swelling

Treatment causes the blood & lymphatic vessels to widen in a process called vasodilation. The treated area also undergoes angiogenesis, the growth of new small blood vessels. This allows more nutrients to be supplied to the injured and aid removal of waste from dead or damaged cells. Improving the drainage through the lymphatic vessels and veins also helps removing the excessive swelling right from the first treatment.


Powerful Local Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Research has shown laser is excellent at helping the completion of the inflammatory process. Specifically, it has documented effects at reducing inflammation producing cytokines such as Interleukin-1. At the same time, Laser has shown to reduce damaging free radical levels by increasing SOD levels (Super Oxidase Dismutase). This helps get your painful inflammation under control by targeting the cells and enzymes that make inflammation worse!


Helps Restore Normal Nerve Function

Nerves allow your brain to communicate with your body and visa versa. When your body is in pain, particularly if chronic, the nerves stop working as well. Laser has been shown to help nerve signal transmission improve, a finding that has been backed up with specific nerve tests after treatment. An additional effect is the cell regeneration in damaged nerves, something that is normally very slow or non-existent!


Complete Healing & Less Scar Tissue

Poor quality healing often leads to scar tissue formation. By getting treatment early, laser can prevent the build-up of scar tissue. This has been particularly good for patients with torn ligaments, tendons or muscles, or post-surgery. By getting a complete healing effect, tissue has less scarring, therefore reducing the chronic pain that is so often associated with scars.


Increase Local Cell Metabolism

Laser literally energises your cells! By stimulating the right molecules in the target area, tissue oxygenation, ATP synthesis (energy creation) and intercellular exchanges are accelerated. These photochemical reactions cause your body’s injured cells to work more efficiently and at a faster pace. This is because your cells are able to make more energy.


Regulation of Your Immune System

Inside the treated areas, a greatly improved immune response has been seen. This is thanks to an increase in Leukocytic activity. The immune system is seen to be working harder. Surface wounds being treated with Laser are shown to be more resistant to secondary infections. Your immune system not only battles infections, it also clears away dead and damaged tissue meaning your body can clean & process injured tissues more effectively.


Amplified Tissue Repair & Regeneration

By delivering the treatment at specifically tailored wavelengths, powers, and pulse frequencies, the regeneration effects penetrate deep into your body to accelerate cellular repair and replication. This results in repair & regeneration of tendon, ligament, muscle & bone cells at a faster rate than would otherwise be occurring. Not just providing pain relief, but actually healing the damage!


Pain Relief That Lasts

The combination of treatment effects are so broad that pain relief lasts. Inflammation and swelling reduce, greater circulation brings more nutrients to the injured area and expels more waste products. Cells metabolism elevates as they are producing more energy, as a result, healing occurs faster. But not just faster, more completely. Less scarred, fibrous tissue means better quality healing and reduced soreness, with better outcomes, even after surgery.

This leaves you with an injury that has healed much more effectively and completely. Most of all, treatment gives you a robustness, to reduce the likelihood of future injury.
