Understanding What Class IV Laser Therapy Is
Class IV laser therapy is an alternative and non-invasive pain therapy used to heal damaged cells. Kinetic energy is stimulated inside a damaged cell by sending light (photons) through a laser. A photon is a specific amount of electromagnetic radiation. This energy is absorbed through the skin, as well as, a number of chemical changes occur from k laser therapy within the cells. The results of these chemical changes include:
• An increase in widening the blood vessels. resulting from the relaxation of smooth muscle cells.
• An increase production of proteins and other enzymes.
• Mitochondria stimulation.
• Elevates collagen levels.
• Strengthens the immune system.
Blood vessels widen because of the relaxation of smooth muscle cells. Enzymes are what does the majority of work inside cells and are necessary for the regulation of organs and tissues, as well as, function and structure. Mitochondria is what provides fuel for a cell’s activity. By elevating collagen, scar tissue formation is prevented. The immune system is strengthened by an increase in lymphatic drainage or toxins.
