CLASS IV LASER
How It Works
What Is Class IV Laser Therapy?
As utilized by the Calgary Flames and the Calgary Zoo, class IV therapeutic laser is a safe and effective modality within a Chiropractic preventative wellness care model for optimal health.
The most advanced cold laser on the market, the Class IV is a powerful and highly effective tool useful for accelerating healing and reducing pain. It utilizes specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal.
Your First Visit
Prior to your first visit, please take a few moments to complete the appropriate New Patient Intake paperwork found within your confirmation email or arrive 10-minutes early to complete a paper version, as this will provide our team with the required information to evaluate your health needs to ensure the utmost care.
During your first visit, you will share information about your health, such as any injury or surgery, medications, family health history and your reasons for seeking Class IV Laser at this time. A physical assessment may include: posture, range of motion, reflexes, vitals, and other orthopaedic and neurologic tests. The laser is a passive device, a mild warmth and a beeping may take place throughout. Gown or shorts are provided if needed. Your required treatment plan will be outlined for your optimal results. Should you be interested in Chiropractic adjustment or some soft tissue techniques for enhanced range of motion, please note during booking. Some patients may require x-rays in order to provide greater insight into their condition, at that point in time we will provide you with the required referral information.
After your treatment, some homecare recommendations may have been suggested to you including gentle stretches or exercises, water/diet/lifestyle modifications, ice/heat application and various follow-up treatment. Expect to book several consecutive treatments at first for best results or on occasion for the pain reduction of acute flare-ups. As they have accumulated over time, chronic conditions may require additional time to correct. Your compliance with our team's recommendations will ensure optimal results!
