Our office uses a Class IV laser from Summus. We use this laser to help patients heal faster by increasing Oxygen to the deeper tissues than we were able to get with an Ultrasound machine. We also use the Laser as part of our Peripheral Neuropathy program to restore better function and healing as noted below.
- Pain Patterns: The Summus Class IV laser has been used to treat neck injuries from motor vehicle accidents, ear infections, migraine headaches, sinus infections, bursitis, rotator cuff strains and tears. The laser is also used to treat carpel tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers, golfer’s and tennis elbow, sciatic pain, disc degeneration, ACL/PCL injuries, baker’s cysts, Osgood Schlatter’s, Post knee-replacement, arthritis, heel pain, plantar fascitis.
- Peripheral Neuropathy: Are you experiencing pain, numbness, burning, tingling or loss of feeling because of Neuropathy? 42.5 million Americans suffer yearly. It’s not uncommon for some to entirely loss the feeling in their feet and hands, frequently fall because of the loss of sensation, suffer debilitating pain that limits their enjoyment of life. The laser increases oxygen, draws in nutrients to the area, reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain.
Peripheral Neuropathy can be caused by the following conditions:
- Back, leg and hip problems
- Autoimmune diseases
- Exposure to toxins
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
- Lyme disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Spine Surgery
- Traumas (motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries, etc.)
