Laser therapy provides a noninvasive, drug-free answers to pain
Our secret is combining two very powerful, safe and advanced technologies. We add a caring attitude and a supportive staff. This results in outstanding non-surgical pain-reduction and positive outcomes.
We are proud to be the only clinic in Rochester that combines the SpineMED® decompression system with the LiteCure Class 4 Deep Tissue Laser Therapy® to achieve excellence in patient outcomes, reduction in pain, and a return to the activities and quality of life they enjoy. We have concluded that SpineMED® non-surgical decompression system and the LiteCure Class 4 Deep Tissue Laser are the most intelligently conceived, designed and engineered technologies in their respective classes.
What is LASER light?
LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Class 4 Deep Tissue Laser Therapy™ is an is an innovative, scientifically based, therapeutic modality. This new technology offers advanced pain relief and expedited healing times through a process known as photobiostimulation. The Class 4 LCT-1000® delivers, deep, penetrating, photonic energy to bring about profound physiological changes. ATP (Adenosinetriphosphate) production is increased, inflammation and pain reduced, and circulation increased at the site of injury. These changes in cellular chemistry are triggered by the Class 4 LCT-1000® making it a true healing modality.
How does Laser Therapy compared to LED therapy?
Not all light is the same and not all monochromatic light is the same or has equal medical benefit.
A number of studies have compared the effectiveness of laser light to LED light and the majority have found laser light to be far more effective, particularly in treating tissue of any significant depth. While LED light therapy does have some beneficial effect, it is limited to superficial tissue treatment only. The preponderance of opinion is that laser light can achieve much greater and deeper stimulative and therapeutically beneficial effects. Simply stated, if you can’t reach it, you can’t treat intrepidly why the LCT-1000 Deep Tissue Laser Class 4 technology is, in a class primarily by itself.
What are the biological effects of laser light emitted from devices like the LiteCure Class 4 Deep Tissue Laser?
Over 2000 studies have shown that lasers:
- REDUCE PAIN by stimulating cells to produce their own endorphins, a natural painkiller.
- PROMOTE FASTER HEALING by stimulating cells to increase the production of major healing enzymes.
- REDUCE INFLAMMATION through improved lymphatic drainage.
- INCREASE BONE REPAIR SPEED by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic proliferation
- RELAX MUSCLES and muscle spasms
- DECREASE SWELLING by stimulating lymphatic drainage
- ENHANCE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM by increasing the number of “killer” cells by 400-900%
- RE-ENERGIZE CELL MEMBRANES to allow transport of essential nutrients across cell walls (nutrients will not cross an injured or sick cell wall, thus slowing healing)
What issues is laser therapy good for?
Class 4 deep tissue laser therapy is ideal for: Dev, please make this list go across three columns

The Class 4 LCT-1000 incorporates the most technologically advanced laser diodes currently available. These diodes have been proven in high-end applications to be long-lasting and reliable. The Class 4 LCT-1000 incorporates adjustable power settings up to 10W, and multiple modes of operation including continuous-wave, and pulse modes.
The Class 4 LCT-1000 can deliver larger dosages of therapeutic energy (up to 1,500 times more energy than other therapy lasers) and consequently reduce treatment time. Delivering a larger number of photons per area, the larger spot size of the treatment hand-piece makes treating areas faster, and allows the clinician to treat more patients with greater efficacy and improved results.
