Laser therapy can relieve pain, reduce swelling, and increase range of motion.
Class IV laser therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth. The Platinum Series therapy lasers by Summus Medical Laser accelerate the healing process by decreasing inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic and acute pain, Class IV laser therapy can provide dramatic results.
The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved, and the function is restored.
During Treatment, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level. Increased metabolic activity within the cell stimulates the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane initiating increased production of cellular energy (ATP). This leads to a cascade of beneficial events promoting the acceleration of the healing process and reduced pain.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often should a patient be treated?
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2-3 times a week, tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.
How long before the results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean the condition is not improving. Each treatment is cumulative, and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally, one feels mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
