Class IV Laser Therapy Interventional and case reports confirm positive therapeutic outcomes in multiple clinical indications

Author: Brian Pryor, PhD

Abstract:  Tissue that is damaged and poorly oxygenated as a result of swelling, trauma or inflammation has been shown to have a positive response to laser therapy irradiation.  Deep penetrating photons activate a biochemical cascade of events leading to rapid cellular regeneration, normalization and healing.

Laser light energy is highly absorbed by skin and subcutaneous tissue, therefore, penetration is key to therapeutic results.  Traditional low level laser therapy (Classes I-III) provides less than optimal clinical outcomes in most disease conditions because it cannot produce the deep tissue laser penetration necessary without using excessively long treatment times.  Longer wavelengths and high power output result in deeper penetration and higher dosage to the tissue.  Larger laser therapeutic dosage levels produce improved clinical outcomes as illustrated in case and interventional studies.  Certain Class IV lasers have been shown to provide both the wavelengths and output power levels necessary to trigger therapeutic cellular metabolic changes, especially when applied with scientifically based protocols.
