Why Class IV Laser Therapy is Essential for Modern Practices.
In the 1960’s scientists discovered infrared laser photobiomodulation and its benefits for human health. By 2018, after 60 years of core and clinical science and technological equipment development, we can treat and manage a wide array of clinical wound, neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. This lecture gives a brief overview of core science and clinical applications, and the benefits Class IV Laser therapy brings to modern human pain or rehabilitation clinics.
