Summus Class IV Therapeutic Laser Therapy

summus-medical-laserMorris Spine & Sport’s NEW Summus Class IV Therapeutic Laser works through a method called Photobiomodulation. This means that is uses photonic energy (light) in order to make biologic changes in the tissues of the body.

Our Therapeutic Laser assists in tissue repair and wound healing. Increasing ATP (cellular energy) production in the mitochondria and sending more oxygen to the injured area. This helps to improve blood flow and reduces the fluid buildup that causes inflammation.

Overall, our Therapeutic Laser treatments can help speed up your body’s natural healing potential – promoting faster pain relief and reducing inflammation.
