​Read on to learn what laser therapy is and the benefits of Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy for active adults.

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is the use of focused light (a laser) at very specific wavelengths. It is a non-invasive procedure whereby light energy penetrates the superficial layers of your skin to interact with the injured or inflamed deep tissues of your body. Patients experience increased cellular metabolism, decreased pain, reduction in muscle spasms, improved circulation and reduced inflammation.

What is it used for?

In Canada, laser therapy is most often prescribed for common “itis” conditions – which are any acute or chronic conditions involving inflammation. Such conditions may include:
Did you know that laser therapy can give you relief from conditions you thought you had to just live with? Some of the most common include:


Laser therapy is used for arthritic conditions as a way to manage pain and inflammation. Class IV lasers are powerful enough to deliver larger doses, across larger areas in shorter treatment times, than the traditional cold lasers (Low Level Light Therapy)


Cortisone shots are one of the most common treatments used for this but they only provide temporary relief, directly at the injection site. Laser therapy is a more effective treatment with no side effects, provides longer-term relief, and can be used to treat satellite pain sites too. ​

Plantar Fasciitis

Usually treated by orthotics and/or medications. At Back2Health, we’ve seen patients integrate these modalities with laser therapy and have great success. Laser therapy helps reduce the pain and inflammation in your feet, calves, and hips related to plantar fasciitis.

Have you ever had an injury that you felt was taking longer than normal to heal? If administered as soon as possible after an initial injury (assuming there are no other medical complications from the injury), laser therapy can shorten your healing time. When you can manage inflammation, you can accelerate your healing process. ​
If you’ve been living with chronic pain and inflammation as a daily discomfort for some time now, then laser therapy can actually give you some relief from your chronic pains. It promotes better circulation to damaged tissues and is a powerful treatment option when you want or need to avoid pharmaceutical medications. ​
Remember the last time you went for a long run or overexerted yourself too much at the gym and were sore and achy the next two or three days? This is known as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). If you’re in professional sports, or even just want a good workout without the debilitating muscle pain post-exercise, then laser therapy after your physical activity can help minimize that soreness.
