How Class IV Laser Therapy Works
Laser therapy light is infra-red electro-magnetic energy entering the body as photons.
Tissues targeted are stimulated to increase production of a cellular enzyme (Cytochrome C Oxidase) that is critical to the production of ATP. ATP is the currency of chemical energy in living cells. With increased ATP production and thus greater cellular energy a host of biological responses are facilitated, such as mediation of pain, reduction of inflammation, reduced scar tissue, increased cell metabolism, improved vascular activity, and accelerated healing. This is the photo-chemical effect of High-Power Laser Therapy.
