Align Healing Center has been successfully utilizing Cold Laser therapy and Class IV Laser therapy for a profound effect on reducing pain and healing time. Therapy lasers supply therapeutic energy in the form of light which is absorbed by the cells. Therapeutic laser light causes an increase in cellular energy within the weakened or damaged cells, therefore increasing the cells ability to heal. The cascade of beneficial effects that take place with laser therapy is: marked reduction in pain, endorphin release, improved cellular metabolism, improved circulation, reduction of inflammation, improved tissue healing and improved nerve function. More than 2000 research studies have been conducted to date demonstrating the benefits of laser therapy.
Class IV laser therapy with the Summus Medical Laser 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.
There are thousands of published scientific studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of laser therapy.
Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.
Use Laser Therapy in Conjunction With Other Treatments Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of treatment, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and even following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
Class IV laser therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth. Class IV laser therapy 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.
