Class IV Laser Therapy  

Lite Cure Therapy

Stop the Pain and Start the Healing.....TODAY!

Laser therapy was born from scientific research over 30 years ago in Europe. Today, the advanced technology of class IV deep tissue laser therapy is an effective alternative to surgical procedures, does not require the use of drugs, or has any known side effects.

Studies have proven that class IV laser therapy achieves faster and more effective results than the treatment from other modalities.

Albert Einstein, who brought us the theory of relativity, first proposed the process that makes lasers possible. By the mid-1960s, scientists discovered that lasers could be used to accelerate how fast the body heals after surgery. Since that time, there have been over 2500 published medical research papers on the subject of laser therapy, accelerated injury healing and pain relief.


Class IV Laser FAQ

Here at Summit Medical Care Center, we are proud to offer the latest in laser therapy treatments for acute and chronic injuries.

What is Class IV Laser therapy?

Class IV Laser therapy utilizes low level laser light in the red/infrared spectrum to stimulate healing on a cellular level. There are sections within the cells of the body that absorb certain wavelengths of light. The light is then turned into energy for cellular regeneration.

What does Class IV Laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy is effective at treating and healing back and neck pain, arthritis, tennis elbow, runner’s knee, carpel tunnel, shin splints and pulled muscles as well as other types of accidental, sports and work injuries. It can also be used to speed healing after surgery.

What can I expect during my laser therapy session?

During your laser therapy session, our medical practitioners focus the laser over the area to be treated. The light painlessly penetrates the skin to heal the injury. Each session can last anywhere from two to 10 minutes.

Are there any side effects from receiving laser therapy?

There are nearly no side effects associated with laser therapy. Some individuals may feel a warm or tingling sensation during the treatments, and the treated areas may feel slightly tender after the session.

How many treatments will I need to start feeling better?

Many individuals feel better after the first treatment, but it may take as many as four treatments before significant symptom reduction and healing is noticed.

How many times a week should I receive treatments?

The frequency of sessions per week depends on your specific treatment plan. In general, treatments are scheduled between one and three times a week.

Can laser therapy be used alongside other treatment options?

Since laser therapy contains virtually no side effects, it is perfectly safe to combine it with other forms of treatment to achieve total body healing, health and wellness. Most of our treatments plans are multi-pronged and include chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression.

Are there any studies to back the effectiveness of laser therapy treatments?

Numerous studies have been performed to objectively test the effectiveness of cold laser therapy in patients with repetitive motion and sports injuries as well as acute and chronic pain. The studies concluded that patients heal between three and five times faster with laser therapy than without it.

What are the benefits of receiving cold laser therapy?

Laser therapy reduces swelling, inflammation and pain. It increases cellular regeneration and healing by increasing cellular metabolism. It increases regeneration of muscles and soft tissues. It promotes lymphatic flow. It reduces muscle spasms. It helps increase circulation, verve function and enzyme production, and it improves the flexibility and function of joints and muscles.


Our Approach

Our clinic combines multiple non-invasive therapies for treatment, including Spinal Decompression Therapy and Class IV Laser Therapy, to treat discomfort and inflammation with a quickness that far exceeds the body’s normal abilities.

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a treatment that utilizes traction force in order to gently decompress an injured disc. The patient lies on a decompression table while a special computer applies gradual levels of distraction to gently pull apart the spine, allowing the disc to reform to its proper shape. This accelerates the healing process by alleviating strain on the injured disc, while restoring its access to the body’s natural flow of nutrients.

Class IV Laser Therapy offers expedited pain relief through a process known as photobiostimulation. Prompted by a dose of deep penetrating photonic energy, your body produces increased amounts of ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate), the substance responsible for cellular energy production. The increased levels of ATP lead to improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and ultimately, a rate of healing that is three to five times faster than normal.

When used together in measured increments, these treatments provide safe, non-invasive pain relief at an expedited rate. Our non-invasive therapies can help provide relief for a multitude of ailments including carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathy, failed back surgery, herniated/bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and spinal stenosis.

Our practice uses the latest techniques and treatments to ensure a speedy and pain-free recovery.
