Class IV laser therapy is used for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing and decrease inflammation.
When the light source is placed against the skin, photons penetrate several centimeters down and are absorbed by the mitochondria (the energy producing part of a cell). This energy results in the restoration of normal cell function.

The high powered diode laser provides a warm, soothing feeling during treatment. Laser therapy is a quick, easy and relaxing treatment for the following:
