Class IV Low Level  Laser Therapy

Class 4 Low Level Laser (aka Cold Laser) Therapy is an excellent treatment that is often utilized to treat a wide array of conditions and pain.  To date, there are now over 5000 Proof Positive Clinical Studies and Research Papers that reveal beyond a shadow of a doubt that laser therapy, phototherapy aka Photobiomodulation (PBM) is effective at treating a wide range of conditions that were previously untreatable, except sometimes through drugs and surgery. There are over quarter million health care providers using cold lasers in their practice and over a million laser users, so laser therapy is definitely NOT an “experimental” therapy. Research reveals how and why therapeutic lasers are exceptionally effective for pain relief, the reduction of inflammation, increasing circulation of both blood and lymph, and supporting the body to heal on a cellular level.

The following is a list of cold laser controlled, randomized, double-blind studies, which have shown that Cold Laser Therapy is an effective treatment modality for a wide range of treatment indications such as:

  • Acne Vulgaris
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Ankle sprains
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic back pain
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Epicondylitis
  • Herpes simplex
  • Lymphedema
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Oral mucositis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Stroke
  • Temporomandibular dysfunction
  • Tinnitus


Clinical Results Reveal Many Transformative and Encouraging Benefits Such As:

  1. Anti-Inflammatory Effect
    Effect of Laser Therapy on the Expression of Inflammatory Mediators… Pubmed

Laser Therapy reduces inflammation with vasodilation, activation of the lymphatic drainage system, and reduction of pro-inflammatory mediators; as a result, inflammation, erythema, bruising, and edema are reduced. This is one of the primary goals in Photomedicine (Laser) Therapy.

  1. Analgesic Effect

Anti-inflammatory and Analgesic Effects of Laser Therapy… Pubmed

Reduction of pain through the suppression of nerve signal transmission over unmyelinated c-fibers; production of high levels of peptides such as endorphins and enkephalins from the brain and adrenal glands, offering successful treatment of many conditions; a suppression of nociceptors, an increase of simulated threshold, an increased release of tissue endorphins.

  1. Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth

Effect of Laser Therapy on Proliferation and Differentiation of Cells… Pubmed

Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. Laser light increases the energy available to the cells so that they can take on nutrients and get rid of waste products more quickly; perfect for integrative medicine.

  1. Improved Vascular Activity

Laser therapy is purported to improve blood flow in soft tissues. Modulating circulation would promote healing by controlling postinjury ischemia, hypoxia, edema, and secondary tissue damage.

  1. Increased Metabolic Activity

Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.

  1. Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points

Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis, providing musculoskeletal pain relief.

  1. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation
    Muscle regeneration is a complex phenomenon, involving replacement of damaged fibers by new muscle fibers. During this process, there is a tendency to form scar tissue or fibrosis by deposition of collagen that could be detrimental to muscle function. Laser therapy significantly reduced the lesion percentage area in the injured muscle (p<0.05), increased mRNA levels of the transcription factors MyoD and myogenin (p<0.01) and the pro-angiogenic vascular endothelial growth factor (p<0.01). Moreover, Laser Therapy decreased the expression of the profibrotic transforming growth factor TGF-β mRNA (p<0.01) and reduced type I collagen deposition (p<0.01). These results suggest that photomedicine could be an effective therapeutic approach for promoting skeletal muscle regeneration while preventing tissue fibrosis after muscle injury. Pubmed
  2. Improved Nerve Function
    Therapeutic laser energy accelerates the process of nerve cell regeneration and increases the amplitude of action potentials to optimize motor and sensory nerve functions, and stimulates the regeneration of myelin and other nerve tissues to decrease pain.

  1. Immunoregulation
    Laser therapy benefits the immune system by stimulating immunoglobulins and lymphocytes; energy is absorbed by targeted chromophores (molecular enzymes) that react to laser light. The production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) accelerates in targeted tissues, stimulating increased energy for all chemical reactions in targeted cells.
