The Healing Benefits of Class IV Laser Therapy

By Dr. Collin Struble DC CME

We are excited to introduce MEDRAY-QUAD Class IV Laser Therapy to your chiropractic care at The Wellness Center of Boise! This state of the art technology takes healing to the next level, the cellular level. Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

Every problem in the body, acute or chronic, is characterized by a reduced production of cellular energy called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). ATP is necessary in order for the cells to function optimally. Our cells need ATP just like a car needs fuel to drive. With the Class IV Laser, light energy enters the damaged cells through the skin and stimulates intracellular activity ie: the production of ATP. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. As the cells recover, the healing process takes place.

Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 4-8 minutes. You may experience a comfortable warming sensation at the point of application. The warmth is a benefit, but the true benefit is at a cellular level.

Most patients experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 6 to 10 sessions. Symptoms may increase at first due to nerve response, but relief typically follows.
Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be healed or controlled with a series of regular treatments. The effects of Laser Therapy are cumulative; so, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.

The benefits of Laser Therapy are many, and include relief of pain without the use of addictive prescription painkillers, strong anti-inflammatory effects, it is a non-surgical treatment with no negative side effects, it promotes timely healing of sprains & strains, rapid recovery of the structural integrity of injured regions, rapid resolution of swollen areas, immediate improvement of local blood circulation, rapid repair of superficial injuries, such as wounds and ulcers, neuropathy, and the list goes on.

Class IV Laser Therapy is safe as it has been cleared by the FDA, does not emit ionizing radiation, and proven safe and successful as evidenced by years of extensive studies.

At The Wellness Center of Boise, chiropractic care continues to resolve so many of our patients acute and chronic neuro-musculoskeletal and related health issues. Your visit is enhanced with the benefits of deep tissue work by our Massage Therapist, and now our Medray Class IV Laser Therapy that addresses pain and inflammation at the celluar level. Now is the time to talk with Dr. Collin to find out how Laser Therapy can benefit you!
