Proven 90% Effective
Class IV laser therapy is a drug-free, non-surgical solution for neuropathic pain. It has been proven in clinical trials to be 90% effective at treating the symptoms with no observed complications.*
Class IV laser therapy improves neuropathic symptoms by preventing neural apoptosis and enhancing neurite outgrowth. Additionally, studies indicate laser therapy produces significant improvement of functional recovery after nerve crush injury and toxin exposure.

What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy delivers specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain, and enhanced tissue repair. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2002.
The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.
