Arthritis is the disease that affects the musculoskeletal system; in particular,
it affects the joints. It is the main cause of disability among older people, and
to be precise it is more commonly observed in people over 55 to 60 years
old. Arthritis is group of diseases and covers many medical conditions. The
most common type of arthritis is Osteoarthritis (OA), whilerheumatoid
arthritis is the second most common. Moreover, there are some additional
types of arthritis that can affect people at a very young age. The condition is
caused by malfunction in one of the many parts of any joint. Basically the
type of arthritis is diagnosed based on which organ is affected the most,
which ultimately affects the ligament, synovial fluid, bone joints or even

Its symptoms can be severe pain in joints, tenderness when pressure is
applied to the joint, swollen and inflamed joints, unusual stiffness in the
joint, etc. In the rheumatoid condition, for example, there could be
developments of lumps of tissues under the skin. Unfortunately and after
continued research, there is still no cure. Living with arthritis can be painful,
but there are lots of treatment options available to minimize its negative
impact on your daily life. Apart from prescribed medications, mainly
painkillers, newly developed laser therapy can be a good alternative for pain

Laser therapy for arthritis lessens the swelling and inflammation. It does this
by increasing blood flow and overall circulation to the malfunctioned area.

the ligaments, tendons and muscles have a new and rejuvenated support
system, which in turn lessens a lot of pain.

Class IV laser therapy. The difference between the four is the amount of
power they emit. The Class IV is a high-powered therapy device ranging
from 6 Watts to 10 Watts. Since this power is much higher than cold laser
therapy, the penetration of the Class IV Laser system is preferred over its

Class IV laser therapy is performed in outpatient wards and is a non-
invasive, painless procedure. Since it is advanced, FDA approved,
convenient and very effective, it is quickly gaining popularity in the US. It is
available in many chiropractic health centers across the nation, but you will
have to seek out which chiropractors have the Class IV laser in your area.

Because Class IV therapy is much more powerful than its counterparts, it
provides greater tissue penetration. Many advanced chiropractic wellness
specialists are proud to have this groundbreaking technology for not only
people affected by arthritis, but also for people suffering from chronic pain
associated with the knee, neck and lower back. And laser therapy isn’t just
effective, it’s very safe as well and does not have any side effects. The other
advantages of using a Class IV laser a faster recovery time, more relaxed
muscles, improved tissue activity, increased blood circulation, fair reduction
of inflammation, the regeneration of nerve cells and most importantly, it
increases joint flexibility.
