The Summus Medical Laser is one of the most advanced treatment options available when it comes to pain relief and helping the body heal at a much faster rate. Our chiropractor can easily incorporate the use of the Summus Medical Laser, also known as the K-Laser, into the treatment we provide at our practice. The technology works along with other aspects of chiropractic care to hasten the healing process and reduce recovery time, while at the same time ensuring proper healing.
How the K-Laser Works
The K-laser is non-invasive and works at the cellular level, stimulating cells to produce more ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) that they will need during the rejuvenation and repair process. The system uses a low-level laser to penetrate through soft tissues so that a specific group of cells may be targeted. There are no incisions and no wounds. The laser draws freshly oxygenated blood to the area, improving blood flow and reducing inflammation. Cells are prompted to begin the healing process and can gradually begin to repair themselves.
The Benefits of K-Laser Therapy
There are several benefits to using the K-laser. Because the laser is non-invasive, there are no wounds or incisions that need to heal as a result of therapy. The laser's ability to stimulate the cells into producing what they need to heal themselves allows the healing process to begin almost immediately. There are no harmful drugs and no surgical procedures required. Using the laser addresses the cause of a person's discomfort. As the area begins to heal, there is less pain and inflammation allowing for better range of motion and improved flexibility.
What Conditions Can the K-Laser Be Used for?
The K-Laser can be used for a wide variety of injuries and health conditions. It can be used to treat the following:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Chronic pain
- Strains, sprains, and pulls
- And many more
The advanced technology associated with the K-Laser complements other treatments that are included as part of a chiropractic care plan. Laser therapy allows for treatment to be isolated to the area in which the injury or illness is most prominent.
