We are excited to now offer Laser Therapy at Pointe Village Chiropractic! This is the next generation of healing. Summus Class IV medical laser therapy can stimulate all cell types, including soft tissue, ligaments, cartilage, and nerves.
Having been utilized in Europe since the 1970s, this mode of treatment was cleared by the United States FDA in 2004. By employing the most advanced Class IV therapeutic laser that delivers specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light, we can induce a photochemical reaction to enhance tissue healing. This therapeutic effect helps reduce inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
Regenerative, Non-Invasive, Pain Management uses the scientifically proven modality of photobiomodulation; photons of light to modulate mitochondria at a biological level. The result is increased VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), molecular bloodflow and angiogenisis. This reduces pain and inflammation, enhances tissue healing and increases circulation. In other words, the laser energy used in the treatment will increase circulation, which will draw water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. Overall, it improves the transport of nutrients across the membrane, stimulating the increased production of cellular energy (ATP). It also interacts with tissues at the cellular level, causing an increase in metabolic activity within the cell. These changes result to increased cellular function and tissue repair.
MANY PATIENTS REPORT PAIN RELIEF IN AS LITTLE AS ONE OR TWO TREATMENTS. LASER THERAPY ALLOWS PATIENTS TO RESPOND QUICKER TO THEIR OVERALL CARE PLAN AND GET BACK TO LIVING FAST!
Treatments are administered by a technician, using a hand-held device the size of a flashlight. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for anywhere from 30 seconds to 9 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the treatment plan. Most patients report a warm, relaxing sensation. They generally experience no side effects or recovery period. The Goal is Healing, Not Merely Symptom Relief. For too long, medicine has focused on symptom relief rather than true healing. Summus Class IV Medical Laser offers an alternative, and it’s a welcome change for patients interested in natural remedies.
THE SECRET IS LIGHT ENERGY
Laser, also known as High Power Laser Therapy, targets damaged tissue with specific wavelengths of light that have been found to interact with tissue and accelerate the healing process. Much like photosynthesis in plants, light energy passes through the skin, into the cell membrane, initiating a process called photobiostimulation. This process enhances the body’s natural regenerative functions, as well as stimulating the release of endorphins and collagen. It may eventually even normalize damaged or injured tissue.
The result? Accelerated injury healing, as well as reduced pain, stiffness, swelling, and spasms. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored, so patients may take their life back and resume their favorite hobbies and activities.
At Pointe Village Chiropractic, we stay up-to-date with the most advanced technologies. Summus Class IV Medical Laser therapy uses the largest variety of laser parameters to stimulate all the body’s damaged tissue and cells to heal themselves more quickly and efficiently. This procedure has been proven effective at accelerating healing and decreasing inflammation and pain by stimulating tissue growth and repair. Class IV Laser is safe, painless and has no side effects and is used by many professional sports teams and athletes in getting them back to living pain free and without restriction. As a matter of fact, our office has the same Summus Horizon Medical Laser device as the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings. Come visit us to experience fast, safe and effective pain relief!
