Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Nanaimo Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Atlas Chiropractic and Body Balance now offers patients in Nanaimo class IV deep tissue laser therapy*!

Class 4 laser therapy is a non-invasive technique that helps reduce pain and inflammation. Deep tissue laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. Deep tissue laser therapy for pain relief is FDA and Health Canada approved as an effective alternative to drugs and surgery.

Your laser therapy treatment at Atlas Chiropractic in Nanaimo will last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through clothing. You will feel a soft, soothing warmth as the therapy is administered. Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments, but in many cases relief can be instant.

At Atlas Chiropractic, we will develop a laser therapy treatment plan that is optimal for your treatment needs. When combined with our chiropractic services, deep tissue laser therapy can speed up recovery and enhance pain relief.

Class IV Laser Therapy reduces inflammation, treats acute pain and is safe, painless and fast. Despite quick treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up 24 hours after treatment.

At Atlas Chiropractic we use LiteCure Medical Class 4 Lasers which are the preferred brand of professional athletic trainers and doctors worldwide.. LiteCure Medical is the leader in scientific research and education.

Why Class IV Laser Therapy?

Studies have decisively concluded that deeper healing and pain relief is best achieved using Class IV lasers. At Atlas Chiropractic in Nanaimo, we use only Class IV lasers. Our laser machines are FDA and Health Canada approved.

Compared to Class IIIa and Class IIIb therapy lasers, patients respond to Class IV laser treatments with fantastic results.The stimulating healing effects of the laser are felt almost immediately and results are cumulative. Because the Class IV laser delivers more power and greater depth of penetration, each treatment session is shorter and fewer treatments may be required, overall, when compared to lower-powered therapy lasers.

Effective deep tissue laser therapy treatment is a direct function of power of the laser light and dose delivered. There are differences across units that are available on the market, in the wavelength, power density, pulse modulation, and esthetics of the system. These parameters affect penetration depth, dose distribution, treatment time and the estimated biological effect. Our Nanaimo Class IV Deep Tissue laser therapy is the most effective laser therapy offered.

When combined with chiropractic or massage treatment at our Nanaimo chiropractic office, the benefits of Class IV deep tissue laser treatments can result in more effective, comfortable and longer lasting results!

*results may vary patient to patient.

Class IV deep tissue laser therapy in Nanaimo is most successful in treating chronic and deeper-seated soft-tissue problems and also successfully enables tissue regeneration while helping your body to fight infection.
