Class IV Laser Treatment Q & A

What is class IV laser treatment?

Class IV laser treatment uses the strongest medical laser on the market for continuous use, cutting acute recovery time by one-third, and is sometimes called hot laser therapy. It helps with chronic and acute problems and is 70 times stronger than a class III laser. It’s known to reduce inflammation and swelling while decreasing pain.

Dr. Keys administers a proper amount of laser light to the area needing treatment. The light stimulates cellular activity, which reduces inflammation of the injured area and allows the healing process to begin.



What are the benefits of class IV or hot laser therapy?

Class IV laser therapy has numerous benefits. They include:

  • Nerve function improvement
  • Increased blood flow
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Accelerated tissue repair
  • Quick recovery time
  • Heightened immune response
  • Pain relief

Dr. Keys has the expertise to develop a highly personalized plan for your condition, giving you the best outcome possible.

How does class IV laser treatment work?

Class IV laser treatment floods your tissues with photons, which are particles of electromagnetic energy. The photons then increase circulation to the cells in the affected area, reducing pain and inflammation.

The class IV laser treatment works because it initiates the body’s natural healing processes. Some benefits are felt and seen immediately. Since every patient’s condition and recovery are different, it may be 24 hours before you experience results.



What should I expect in a laser therapy treatment?

Before your class IV laser therapy begins, Dr. Keys explains the process of the treatment with you. He may also propose using additional treatments, such as chiropractic care, decompression, or massage, to offer the best outcome for your condition.

Your hot laser session takes five to 25 minutes, depending on the size and severity of the area needing treatment. Acute injuries may require four to six treatments, while other conditions, such as osteoarthritis and arthritis, may need six to 12 or more.

Class IV laser therapy is a painless process. If you feel anything, it’s usually a mild, soothing warm sensation that comes from the laser energy. With hot laser therapy, there’s minimal risk of side effects and no recovery time.

If you’re experiencing pain in your body, class IV, or class 4 laser treatment may be recommended to you by Dr. Keys. For a consultation and diagnosis of your condition, call Keys Chiropractic or schedule an appointment online today.
