Our Summus Platinum Medical Laser in Chestermere Reduces Inflammation, Swelling, Stiffness & More

At Vantage Integrative Health + Wellness, we offer Summus Platinum Medical Laser in Chestermere, which is a form of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). This type of therapy utilizes a non-invasive laser that generates a photochemical response in the damaged or dysfunctional tissue. This painless technique promotes increased circulation by drawing nutrients and oxygen to affected areas. This can help create an optimal healing environment by reducing:




Muscle spasms



How It Works

This type of laser treatment interacts with tissues at a cellular level, causing increased metabolic activity within the cell that stimulates the transporting of nutrients across the cell membrane. This increases the production of cellular energy (ATP). This leads to a wide range of beneficial events happening within your body, promoting an accelerated healing process while reducing pain. Some conditions that can be treated using Summus Platinum Medical Laser include:


Musculoskeletal problems


Post-surgical wounds

Diabetic ulcers

Dermatological conditions

Back pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome


Cervical pain/strain

Knee pain

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Often Should a Patient Be Treated?
    Acute conditions can be treated daily, especially if the condition is accompanied by significant pain. Chronic problems are usually treated 2-3 times per week.
  • What Does Treatment Feel Like?
    There can be a minor sensation during treatment. Sometimes a patient may feel a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas where you are experiencing pain or inflammation may be slightly sensitive briefly before the pain recedes.
  • Are There Side Effects or Associated Risks?
    This type of treatment has been used for over 20 years by healthcare providers and chiropractors all over the world. During that time, very few side effects have been reported. On rare occasions, an old injury or pain syndrome may feel aggravated for a couple of days, as the healing response is more active following a treatment.
  • How Long Does a Treatment Take?
    Treatments typically take 3-10 minutes, depending on the size of the area that is being treated.
  • Has Effectiveness Been Demonstrated Scientifically?
    Yes. There are thousands of published studies that demonstrate the clinical effectiveness of Low-Level Laser Therapy. Of these, there are over 100 rigorously controlled scientific studies that show the effectiveness of Low-Level Laser Therapy for a number of clinical conditions.
  • Does It Hurt?
    During laser therapy, the patient feels little or no physical sensation or at max a mild tingling sensation or calming warmth. The areas of pain or inflammation may become sensitive for a short period before the pain reduces.
  • How Often is it Advised?
    In the case of acute conditions, patients require daily treatment. Chronic problems respond better to treatments received 2-3 times a week. As one heals, the treatment is gradually reduced.
  • How Many Treatments Does It Take?
    Laser therapy is administered depending upon the condition of your health. If the condition is of an acute nature, it may require 4-6 treatments, and if it is chronic then 6-12 (or more) treatments. Arthritis patients may require ongoing periodic care to control the pain.
  • How Long Before Results Are Felt?
    Patients may feel an improvement in the form of reduced pain reduction after the very first treatment. A patient may also not feel improvement over a series of treatments. This does not, however, mean there has been no improvement, because treatments are cumulative, and the outcome may be evident after 3 or 4 sessions.
