Class IV laser therapy delivers specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain and enhanced tissue repair. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2002. Summus Medical Laser has become the preferred choice for thousands of practitioners worldwide.
Class IV laser therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth. The Platinum Series therapy laser by Summus Medical Laser accelerates 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 spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved, and 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.
Numerous studies show that Laser Therapy can help with:
Laser Therapy can relieve pain, reduce swelling and increase range of motion.
