Laser Therapy is a Regenerative, Non-Invasive, healing treatment that reduces Pain by using scientifically proven photo biomodulation technology. Photons of light stimulate the mitochondria within cells at a biological level to increase the rate at which they heal themselves and surrounding tissue. The result is increased VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), molecular blood flow and angiogenisis. This reduces pain and inflammation, enhances tissue healing and increases circulation.
Effects of Laser Therapy
Photo biomodulation (PBM) is a light therapy that uses red and near infra-red light to induce photochemical reactions in the body on the molecular and cellular levels. At Embrace Chiropractic we use the Summus Medical Laser which protocols combine wavelengths, pulsing and power to achieve unparalleled therapeutic effects including modulation of inflammation, reduction in pain, accelerated tissue healing and increased circulation.
Cellular Effects
During laser therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
Therapeutic Effects
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored, and pain is relieved.

Understanding Wavelengths

Why Is Power Important?
Wavelengths determine a therapeutic laser’s depth of penetration and power determines the dosage delivered to depth in tissues. Power (Watts) is the rate of energy delivery and energy is measured in Joules (1 Watt = 1 Joule per second). Higher power at the surface will deliver more energy to the desired depth.
The Importance of Laser Pulsing
Studies prove that pulse frequencies elicit different physiological responses, and that different tissue types (muscle, connective tissue, bone, etc.) respond better to different pulse frequencies. The Summus Medical Laser™ protocols use continuous wave and various pulse frequencies in combination with four therapeutic wavelengths to optimize clinical outcomes.

650 nm wavelength (Targets superficial receptors)

  • Accelerates surface healing
  • Increases Cellular Regeneration
  • Reduces Antibiotic usage
  • Shortens healing time
810 nm wavelength (Targets Mitochondria)

  • Increases conversion of oxygen to ATP (cells chemical energy)
  • Accelerates cellular energy
  • Stimulates Immune System
915 nm wavelength (Targets hemoglobin)

  • Doubles oxygen delivery to tissues
  • Improves pain relief
  • Enhances healing effects
980 nm wavelength

  • Improves circulation
  • Faster recovery
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. Our Intense Super Pulse (ISP) mode delivers a peak of 30w of laser energy to deeper tissues mitigating superficial heat build-up.
