Class IV Laser Therapy is the latest technology for treating musculoskeletal pain. Using varying wavelengths of light Class IV Laser treatments decrease pain and inflammation, improve blood flow and oxygenation and increase ATP (adenosine triphosphate) - an important element required in the healing process.
Compared with other types of laser treatments, Class IV Laser Therapy emits stronger, more intense treatment requiring a shorter amount of treatment time than previously available lasers. It also emits higher wavelength lasers, which accelerate the healing of injured tissues. This type of treatment penetrates up to 10 cm deep, stimulating damaged fibres that previously were unreachable by conventional lasers.
Unlike other manipulation therapies, Chiropractic Therapy focuses on the manipulation of the spine through a series of adjustments and mobilizations. Adjustments are commonly high-velocity motions applied to abnormal vertebra with the goal to improve symmetry and functionality. Chiropractic mobilization refers to a slow manipulation and stretching of muscles and joints with the goal of increasing the range of motion within specific areas of the spine.
