Laser therapy is recognized as a safe and effective treatment modality with a proven track record for a wide variety of conditions.

Here are some facts and interesting discussion points about Laser Therapy.

  • Laser therapy is being utilized by a growing number of health care practitioners.
  • Laser therapy is a safe and effective modality your health care provider uses to address a wide variety of conditions.
  • Today the advanced technology of Class 4 deep tissue laser therapy is an effective alternative to surgical procedures, does not require the use of drugs, or have any known side effects.
  • Summus Medical Laser class 4 laser therapy effectively delivers pain management, inflammation reduction and enhances injury healing without the use of drugs and has virtually no side effects.
  • Class 4 laser therapy from Summus Medical Laser can help relieve your pain without the use of drugs or surgery, and without harmful side effects.
  • Studies have proven that class 4 laser therapy achieves faster and more effective results than the treatment from other modalities.
  • Early therapy lasers were too weak to effectively treat deep conditions and large joints. Summus Medical Laser Class 4 laser therapy achieves faster and more effective results than other modalities.
  • Laser therapy was born from scientific research over thirty years ago in Europe.
  • Albert Einstein, who brought us the Theory of Relativity, first proposed the process that makes lasers possible.
  • By the mid 1960’s scientists discovered that lasers could be used to accelerate how fast the body heals after surgery.
  • In the 1960’s scientists first discovered that therapeutic doses of laser light could stimulate the rate and quality of healing in damaged tissues.
  • In the early twentieth century Albert Einstein developed the theory of lasers, and the first laser was invented in 1960. Soon after, scientists discovered that therapeutic doses of laser light could stimulate the body’s healing processes.
  • Since that time there has been over twenty-five hundred published medical research papers on the subject of laser therapy, accelerated injury healing, and pain relief.
  • Over two thousand scientific and medical research papers have been published on the beneficial effects of laser therapy, accelerated injury healing and pain relief.
  • Extensive scientific and clinical research demonstrates that laser therapy delivers pain relief and enhanced injury healing.
  • The Class 4 laser provides a deeper penetration that allows for faster treatments with a greater number of applications. This translates into positive physiological outcomes that include advanced pain relief, accelerated healing, increased cellular energy levels, improved range of motion and function, reduction of inflammation, and more.
  • The Class 4 Summus Medical Laser penetrates deeper to give faster treatments with a greater number of applications. This translates into positive physiological outcomes that include advanced pain relief, accelerated healing, increased cellular energy levels, improved range of motion and function, reduction of inflammation, and more.
  • During laser therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level. Higher levels of ATP are produced which then increases metabolic activity within the cell, improves the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane and initiates the release of nitric oxide. These events lead to a cascade of beneficial effects increasing cellular function and health.
  • During Summus Medical Laser treatments, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level.
  • The laser light energy is transformed into chemical energy in the cell. Higher levels of ATP are produced which then increases metabolic activity within the cell, improves the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, and initiates the release of nitric oxide. These events lead to a cascade of beneficial effects increasing cellular function and health.

  • During each painless treatment, laser energy increasing circulation, drawing water oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment, that reduces inflammation swelling muscle spasms stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain in relieved.
  • Each painless Summus Medical Laser treatment causes increased circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain in relieved.
  • The wavelength of light transmitted may be scattered by one type of tissue and greatly absorbed by another.
  • Depending on its components each type of tissue such as skin, blood vessels, sweat glands, pigments, and hair follicles has its own absorption characteristics, as the light is absorbed photon energy is transformed into biochemical energy increasing cellular activities. The lasers ability to biostimulate tissue growth and repair results in actually healing tissue.
  • The class iv therapy laser wavelength is important because the wavelength must be appropriate for proper tissue penetration and proper treatment. The Summus Medical Laser was the first to employ dual infrared wavelengths simultaneously of 790 and 970nm. These dual wavelengths are more efficient, healing the tissue while also aiding in pain relief. Combining the Summus Medical Lasers dual frequencies of continuous wave and modulation, provides the clinician with the most advanced laser technology. The power settings of the
  • Summus Medical Laser allow it to be used to treat a variety of injuries and pain, such as neck shoulder back wrist knee foot and ankle and lower extremities.
  • Laser therapy was born from scientific research over 30 years ago in Europe and perfected by Summus Medical Laser with the latest technological advancements today.
