Class IV Laser Therapy in State College
Personalized Chiropractic Care at Brummert Family Chiropractic

Class IV laser therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses laser energy to promote soft tissue healing.

The therapy is painless and nonsurgical and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. Because this therapy targets soft tissues to improve healing time, patients of all ages and activity levels can benefit from Class IV Laser treatments.  

Class IV Laser can be combined with other treatments or as a stand-alone therapy. Whether used individually or in combination with other solutions, Class IV Laser helps the patient safely recover quickly and effectively from soft tissue injuries.

At our State College chiropractic clinic, we know that a holistic approach to care is important to you. Class IV Laser therapy is non-invasive and not painful. At most, you may feel warmth in the area where the laser therapy is being applied.

We understand that Class IV Laser therapy is a new and cutting-edge treatment option. Most of our patients have never heard of laser therapy for treating aches and pains.

What conditions will laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy is performed by applying wavelengths of light to the skin above an affected area. The treatment is not painful. Most patients report that the treatment is very soothing, as the laser causes a warming sensation over the treatment area. The FDA has approved Class IV Laser as a safe and effective treatment option for soft tissue healing.


Some of the conditions Class IV Laser therapy will help with include:

How does class IV laser therapy work?

Class IV Laser therapy works by stimulating the body's natural repair process. Simply put, much of the light that contacts our skin is absorbed by the cells of our soft tissues.

For example, UV rays from the sun are absorbed by the cells of our skin. The interaction of sunlight with our skin is what causes our skin to burn or tan.

Some wavelengths of light, classified as red light and near-infrared, are capable of passing through the skin and fat, where they are absorbed by the cells of our muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

When light is absorbed by the cells of these soft tissues, cellular metabolism speeds up, leading to much faster healing times. This is a scientifically proven principle called photobiomodulation.  

Class IV Laser is the most powerful laser available for use by a medical professional. It penetrates deep into the tissues using a high power output, contributing to a faster and more effective treatment and healing process.

Don’t be fooled by clinics offering lower-level lasers (Classes 1-3). Class IV Laser is the only laser treatment with the proven power to penetrate deep into the cells of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. 

Class IV Laser therapy is helpful for superficial issues such as elbow tendonitis and deep tissue problems like hamstring strains. Class IV Laser treatments can help when other treatment options have failed or when you need to get back to work or play as quickly as possible.

What to expect when receiving class IV laser therapy
Laser therapy treatments last from 5-10 minutes and are painless.

Dr. Brummert uses a handheld device over the impacted area of the body. The device emits light onto and into the skin (not over clothing). The patient usually feels warmth where the treatment is administered. This is described as soothing by most patients and is not uncomfortable.

In most cases, we expect patients to feel some relief within the first four to six treatments; however, many individuals have reported significant relief within just one or two treatments.
