Class IV Laser Therapy
Advanced Healing that Promotes a Faster, More Complete Recovery
Class IV Laser Therapy in Shelby, NC at Carolina Chiropractic Plus
Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to draw water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. Applying light in this way creates a variety of therapeutic effects for patients including improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970s. After FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is now being used extensively in the United States.
At Carolina Chiropractic Plus, our chiropractors frequently combine Laser Therapy with other therapies, including chiropractic adjustments and massage as part of a broad-based, integrated treatment plan. We know from years of experience that a combination of approaches and technologies can often be more effective than one when it comes to relieving pain and improving function for our patients from the surrounding cities of Shelby, Boiling Springs, Kingstown, Kings Mountain, Grover, Earl, Patterson Springs, Lawndale, Fallston, Belwood, Caser and Polkville.

How does Anti-Inflammatory Laser therapy feel?
During the typical treatment (3 to 9 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated), there is usually little or no sensation. From time-to-time, a patient may feel mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may also be sensitive briefly before pain reduction. This is one of the laser’s most attractive advantages – during more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, researchers, healthcare providers and patients alike have reported dramatic results with very few side effects. Treatment with infrared laser is fast, successful, and applicable for many conditions.
