Benefits of Summus Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal.  The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling without the need for surgery.  

This treatment has been known to treat a wide variety of conditions including pre-surgical, post-surgical, acute, and chronic disease states.  The Summus medical laser is leading the way in pain management, tissue repair, safe treatments, and fast treatment times.

What is Shockwave Therapy?​

Shockwave Therapy stimulates the healing process by increasing the blood flow to affected areas, which accelerates healing and often results in quicker relief from pain. It also helps heal chronic inflammation, stimulates collagen, which connects and supports tissue, and also breaks up calcium deposits.

Shockwave treatment is an effective therapy for sports injuries, and it is also useful for work related injuries, after car accidents or problems that occur to all of us in our everyday lives. Some common conditions that respond well to this therapy are:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Shoulder tendonitis and calcifications
  • Plantar Fasciitis and heel spurs
  • Achilles Tendon Pain
  • Epicondylitis (Tennis or Golfer’s elbow)
  • Patellar Tendonitis (jumper’s knee)
  • Neck and Back strains
  • Shin splints
  • Muscle trigger point


What Can A Gait Scan Do For You?​

How does a Gait scan work?

The Gait Scan system records the timing sequences as you walk across a pressure plate. The results are combined with a lower limb biomechanical analysis, which together can help to determine whether you would benefit from custom moulded foot orthotics in addition to a targeted physiotherapy treatment programme.

Who will benefit?

Any patient who is concerned with how they run or walk can benefit from a gait scan: as well as anyone with localised foot pain, bunions, Hammertoes, heel, leg, knee, hip or back pain, where there is concern that foot biomechanics may be contributing.
