High-Dose Laser Therapy is a class 4 therapeutic laser, designed to stimulate healing and eliminate pain. The healing benefits of class 4 laser are so incredible, every major sports organization including the NBA, NFL, MLB, and the US Olympic training centers all utilize class 4 laser.
Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to penetrate tissues, increasing the metabolism of the cells. This happens through a process call photobiomodulation. Photobiomodulation will “bio-stimulates” tissue growth, tissue repair, and turbo charges your cells to speed up the healing process. Laser speeds the healing is through the activation of mitochondria, which are the powerhouse of your cells and produce the energy molecules in your body called ATP. When the photons stimulate the mitochondria, more ATP energy molecules are released, and the metabolism of the cells increase.

Stealth Micro-Pulsed Class 4 Laser for back pain in Jupiter, Florida.
Sport & Spinal Rehab uses a Diowave 60 watt Class 4 laser which allows deeper penetration than most other lasers on the market. The Diowave laser can be used with:
- Continuous Wave Laser Therapy: continuous laser therapy is great for treating larger areas and for diffuse pain like advanced arthritis. With continuous wave laser therapy, patients may feel a warm and soothing sensation. Therefore, we have to keep the laser moving, so the tissues don’t get too hot.
- Micro-Pulsed Wave Laser Therapy: When patients have focal pathologies like disc herniations, stenosis, sprained ligaments, or tears, we use the micro-pulsed wave therapy. With this setting, the laser will pulse faster that your eyes can see, eliminating the thermal effect of the laser. What makes super-pulsed wave therapy so incredible, is the ability to hold the laser over a focal injury, sending all the laser’s energy directly into the injury without overheating tissue.
