PHS Chiropractic Releases 5,000 mW Laser Technology
New cluster probe is most powerful yet—but still safe—cold laser in the Apollo line
Watertown, S.D., March 13, 2014—Physicians, chiropractors and physical therapists now have a new therapeutic option that delivers powerful, ultrafast and effective laser therapy for the lower back, legs and other larger areas of the body—all at a low price point.
Offered by Pivotal Health Solutions (PHS), a leading manufacturer of premium quality health and wellness equipment for more than 20 years, the 5,000 mW Apollo Cluster Probe is the highest-power probe in the Apollo line and is designed for the Apollo Desktop Laser Unit. “By increasing the power by 25 percent, we’ve seen a significant decrease in treatment time, which translates to more effective treatment for the patient and clinician,” said Dr. Curtis Turchin, M.A., D.C., product development director at PHS.
Dr. Turchin, who used the device on his own patients during a six-month trial, found that the 5,000 mW cluster probe was as effective as “hot” lasers costing five times as much. It also offered a safer, cold laser treatment option with less risk of skin burns or eye damage. Most importantly, it cut treatment times to as little as one to two minutes, a significant benefit in today’s fast-paced health care environment.
According to Dr. Turchin, for clinics considering which laser probes are best suited for their practice, the new 5,000 mW cluster probe extends a clinic’s treatment modalities by penetrating into large, deep, thick areas such as the lower back and discs. It also effectively treats larger patients, such as muscular athletes. For any patient, it also offers very fast results with a shortened treatment time. (In comparison, Apollo’s 500 mW model is a specialty point probe designed for hard-to-reach areas or those with less tissue, such as the hands or feet. The 3,000 and 4,000 mW cluster probes combine effective deep-tissue treatment with a sensitivity that makes them ideal for the face or other delicate areas.)
Unlike “hot” surgical lasers with a narrow focus beam, Apollo’s low-level laser technology uses a cluster probe to safely penetrate 1 to 2 inches into the skin to effectively stimulate regeneration of damaged cells and tissues, which brings about more rapid healing and reduces pain. Patients typically receive a series of treatments for conditions, including back and neck pain; sprains and strains; muscular pain; bursitis, tennis elbow, tendonitis and plantar fasciitis; headaches and facial pain; joint problems; inflammation; and post-surgical pain relief.
The Apollo 5,000 mW Cluster Probe is crafted of aerospace-grade aluminum and medical-grade Class 4 laser diodes for long life and reliability. It retails for $5,049. To order, visit www.phschiropractic.com.
