Laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
What is Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the nerves that transmit information to and from your brain and spine to the rest of your body are damaged. When the nerves are damaged, the messages that they transmit are distorted, resulting in a variety of symptoms. The symptoms of neuropathy greatly depend on the type of nerves that are damaged, ranging from autonomic nerves, motor nerves, and sensory nerves.
Common Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
- Sharp shooting pains
- Tingling/Pricking Sensation
- Sensitivity to touch
- Muscle weakness or spasms
- Difficulty moving your arms, legs or atrophy
How We Treat Neuropathy
Rather than prescribing drugs that only hide the pain, or treatments that block the distorted nerve signals, our treatment method targets the root of the pain and re-builds nerve pathways to get them communicating properly again. This contributes to a reduction in symptoms.
High Intensity Laser Therapy 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 inured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.
Our therapies may also be combined with other manual therapies to assist in the healing process. Some patients also benefit from nutrition counseling and suggested supplementation.
Summus Laser Therapy
Class IV Summus Medical Laser Therapy is an FDA cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.
Summus Medical Laser is able to offer a combination of multiple wavelengths and frequencies to elicit the best treatment responses.
It has been well established that different pulse frequencies elicit different physiological responses. During laser therapy, it is beneficial to deliver a variety of pulse frequencies. Summus Medical Laser has taken everything known about the makeup of each anatomical part & modified the settings to target just the right amount of bone, soft tissue, and fat. The Platinum Series’ approach uses the largest variety of laser parameters utilizing multiple distinct phases within each protocol. This dynamic range, combining up to 4 wavelengths and frequencies from CW to 20,000 IIz, has the best chance at stimulating all the body’s cells to heal themselves more efficiently.
