How Class IV Laser Heals Osteoarthritis of the Shoulder

The shoulder consists of three types of bones – upper arm bone which is also known as humerus, the shoulder blade or scapula and the collarbone, also known as clavicle.

Osteoarthritis of the shoulder is known as a degenerative joint disease that happens due to wearing of articular cartilage. It causes swelling, pain and stiffness. It is also known as “wear and tear arthritis”. Whenever a person walks, the bones of the joint rub against each other which results in pain and inconvenience.

Normally, people who are more than 50 years of age, develop this disease. It has also been found in the younger people due to some accident or an injury. For example- a fracture on your shoulder or the dislocation of the shoulder may cause osteoarthritis.


Symptoms of Osteoarthritis:
  • Pain while walking
  • Pain while moving the shoulder
  • Pain during sleep

Use of K Laser Class IV Treatment:

The K laser class IV treatment is considered to be one of the most effective and pain free remedies to treat osteoarthritis of the shoulder. In this procedure, infra-red laser is used to help reduce the pain and inflammation. The treatment enhances tissue healing in your hard and soft tissues which include your muscles, bones and ligaments.

It is by and large, a safe, painless and non-invasive solution for the osteoarthritis of shoulder. Most of the patients who underwent this treatment, have responded very well and witnessed a great relief from the pain. It also helps in reducing the swelling and inflammation of the shoulder which contributes a lot in making it a very effective remedy.

This form of treatment has been in practice for the last 30 years but due to great breakthroughs in science and technology, it has been made even more effective and reliable in modern days.
