Summus Medical Laser Jacksonville, Florida
Lakewood Chiropractic is partnered with Summus Medical Laser technologies to offer a great treatment option. We are proud to offer the Class IV Summus Medical Laser Therapy therapeutic treatment to our patients in Jacksonville, FL and the surrounding communities.
Class IV Summus Medical Laser Therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Laser Therapy can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
Studies show Laser Therapy helps reduce pain associated with the conditions above.
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.
How Does Intense Super Pulse (ISP) Enhance Laser Therapy?
Lasers operating in super pulse mode deliver bursts of high peak power for a short period of time. The Platinum Series Intense Super Pulse (ISP) mode delivers more laser energy to deeper tissues mitigating superficial heat build-up. The unique high powered 28W ISP mode lets the laser operator choose the proper power output and pulse frequency for effective laser therapy.
Why Are Wavelengths So Important?
Wavelengths determine laser energy’s penetration in tissue and specifically target beneficial chromophores to stimulate the photochemical reaction.
Irradiating an area with 650nm, a wavelength where melanin in our skin absorbs very well, will ensure a large dose to the superficial region. Since light can both inhibit bacteria and promote cell growth, laser therapy has incredible results in would healing and scar tissue regulation.
The enzyme determining how efficiently the cell converts molecular oxygen into ATP has the highest absorption at 810nm. Regardless of the enzyme’s molecular state, when it absorbs a photon it will flip states. Photon absorption will accelerate the process and increase cellular ATP production.
The quicker oxygen is released into the blood stream, the more fuel the cell has to carry out all of its natural healing processes. The peak of hemoglobin’s absorption lies at 915nm, when this wavelength is absorbed, more oxygen-fuel is made available to the cells.
Water in our patient’s blood transports oxygen to the cells, carries waste away, and absorbs very well at 980nm. The energy created from absorbing a photon gets converted to heat, creating a temperature gradient at the cellular level, stimulating microcirculation, and bringing more oxygen-fuel to the cells.
