Pain, if not taken care of in time, can affect our lives in unimaginable ways! Be it neck, elbow, shoulder, back, knee, arthritis, shingles, or any other pain, it can affect your ability to function. Nobody wants to live with pain! Today, breakthroughs in the healthcare sector are shaping our future.

These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain, and enhanced tissue repair. Do you know Class 3 is a cold laser, whereas Class IV lasers produces heat? There are different classes of lasers, and High Power Class IV’s can be highly effective for pain relief and healing.

Benefits of Laser Therapy

There are several benefits associated with Class IV Laser Therapy. Higher doses of light are required to deliver appropriate amounts of energy because a large portion of the light is absorbed, reflected, and scattered at the skin’s surface. Less powerful lasers may not be able to penetrate deep enough to stimulate the effect.

  • Can reduce inflammation, aches, and pains - It reduces minor joint aches, pain, and stiffness and helps muscles relax and provide relief. Temporarily decreases arthritis symptoms and helps in blood circulation.
  • May help in acute and chronic injuries – Can help in tendonitis and knee damage and address damaged tissues in specific areas of the body (knees, shoulders, back, etc.), but can also affect related issues. It may also improve back pain, poor posture, and inflammation.
  • May help with neuropathy – It is an effective treatment for treating neuropathy symptoms.
  • It is pain-free – The treatment is fast, easy, non-invasive, and a potential alternative to surgery.

How Does it Work?

A handheld laser device is placed on the patient's skin or directly above the affected area. Sessions can range from 2 to 10 minutes approx. varying from patient to patient, which means we can treat injured tissues in multiple areas in a single session. Each treatment is quick, drug-free, non-surgical, non-addictive, has no side effects, and is entirely pain-free. Class 4 laser therapy penetrates deeply and more efficiently than the Class 3 laser, allowing it to pass energy to the nerve, muscle, ligament, and tendon tissue in no time. Class IV Laser Therapy treatment increases circulation, reducing inflammation, swelling and muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain.

Tamara M.'s 5-Star Google Review for cervical spine relief

I have been a patient now since May.. started out with horrible cervical neck pain, severe lower back pain, unable to walk without pain and very limited ROM.. I am an ICU RN and the patient care over the last year and an half really took it's toll on me physically.. Happily I took a friend's recommendation and came to APMR for treatment.. No surprise I had bulging and herniated discs ( plural) in my cervical spine and lumbar spine causing my pain and limited physicality.. The specialized decompression treatment that I received along with the other treatment modalities that Dr Joe and his wonderful amazing team curated individually for me not only healed me but has returned me to being able to take CrossFit classes and go for runs which I had dearly missed doing.. this has not only helped me physically but also mentally which I cannot express how important that component is to well being. I am now on their weight loss program and have safely shed 20 lbs in one month without starvation and am able to maintain my exercise routine. I am beyond happy and am very very grateful for the excellent care that I've received here at APMR.. I will be a client for life. God Bless

Marcia's 5-Star Google Review for back pain relief

I've been having treatment for about four weeks. I was doing treatment for back pain with another Chiropractor and my pain wasn't getting better. I saw the add on Instagram for Dr. Joseph on laser treatment for back pain and I made an appointment. At that point I was desperately feeling hopeless because of the pain, couldn't sleep well and could barely train. Here I am four weeks later, finally sleeping all night and back to training, still can't lift heavy but I can say I'm already 40% better and not taking pain medication. I am so thankful to Dr. Joe and all his loving stuff, everyone is very professional and you can feel the passion they have for their work. This place is truly amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone that has any type of injury.
