Class 4 Laser Therapy In Towson MD

Class 4 laser therapy may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie but it has become a standard of care for many musculoskeletal injuries since being cleared by the FDA in 2003. Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. The light that is transmitted via the laser stimulates certain processes within the body that help provide relief to symptoms including pain, swelling, and limited range of motion.

There are different classes of lasers like the Class 3 laser which is a cold laser whereas the Class 4 laser produces heat. We decided to purchase a Class 4 laser because we are the team chiropractor for the Baltimore Orioles and that laser is a part of their treatment protocol. It has been a staple for the Orioles and now we’re able to offer this specialized treatment to all of our patients so they can take advantage of the wide variety of Class 4 laser therapy benefits.

Laser therapy may sound like it could be painful but actually, it creates a warm sensation that is quite relaxing. Class 4 laser therapy is a very safe procedure but because our eyes are very sensitive to photons, everyone in the room during laser therapy wears protective safety glasses. This treatment is extremely safe, effective, free of side effects, and works faster than you might think.

“I’ve had six or seven laser treatments to treat a torn ligament in my hip and it has improved greatly, and I definitely recommend it. It feels warm and I really don't want it to end because it feels good! I’ve been coming to Kalkstein Chiropractic for a few years and everyone on the team has made me feel at home every time I come in.” 


How Does Class 4 Laser Therapy Work?

A Class 4 laser emits a wavelength of photos that painlessly transfers energy to the nerve, muscle, ligament, and tendon tissue. Class 4 laser therapy stimulates the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which drives many of the processes within our cells. This increased production of ATP helps speed up the healing process within cells. ATP brings oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the area treated with the laser which speeds up recovery and pain relief. As a result of increased ATP production, the patient experiences an improvement of symptoms, including reduced pain, swelling, and range of motion and of course, the heat from the laser is soothing as well.

Class 4 laser therapy benefits patients with a range of ailments and can be done in a very short amount of time. Most sessions range from 2-6 minutes so we’re able to treat multiple areas of the body in a single session which improves your results and gets you feeling better faster. Many patients notice improvement after their first session so while you may need ten to fifteen sessions in total, you don’t have to wait until the end to start feeling better.

Class 4 Laser Therapy Benefits

Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique for reducing pain and swelling and improving a patient’s range of motion. It can be used for both acute and chronic conditions without any side effects.

Surgery is often recommended to repair or replace joints and while there are certainly many times when surgery is appropriate and needs to be performed, there are times when other effective and less invasive options can be used including laser therapy. The speed, effectiveness, and pleasant sensation of the laser is unmatched by any other treatment. We love it when our patients tell us they already feel better after just one treatment.
