Laser treatment patients seeing results at Squires Chiropractic

AMBER TOWNSHIP — Thirteen years ago, Megan Stevenson of Hart was in a car crash, which resulted in a serious injuries. Since that time, she has tried several medical and holistic treatments to help relieve the constant pain.

“I broke my back in several places and have suffered since,” Stevenson said. “The pain has gotten worse over the years. I’ve tried so many different treatments with little success. Then, I was referred to Dr. Weston Squires and the MLS laser treatments he started offering last year. It’s been a game changer and has helped relieved the majority of my pain.”

Squires Chiropractic, 414 W. US 10, began offering laser treatment last summer.

“Laser application has been around for about 30 years,” said Dr. Squires. “It’s one of the most advanced technologies for reducing pain. It’s also a lot safer than injections and drugs.”

Squires emphasized that the MLS laser is the top-of-the-line in laser treatment.

Not every laser therapy is the same,” he said. “Many lasers have tried to mimic the results, but in recent years the laser providing the best clinical outcomes is the MLS laser.”

Comparatively, regular low level lasers utilize two wavelengths of light to influence the cellular activity under the skin, but can only apply one type of wavelength at time. The MLS class 4 laser, used at Squires’s office can apply both wavelengths perfectly synchronized at the same time during application resulting in faster, longer lasting results with less treatment time. The science behind this device is extensive and proven safe after consultation with our doctor’s approval.

Stevenson said she started with three treatments per week and now comes once a month for maintenance treatment.

“We have had really good results with the laser,” Dr. Squires said. “Of our first 50 patients, 45 were considered successes, with positive results of less pain. That’s a 90 percent success rate, which is almost unheard of in medicine, especially when compared to injections, which often come with side effects.”

Squires said the laser treatment is safe and non-invasive.

“Our successes have included patients with pain in their shoulders, neck, low back, mid-back, and extremities. Additionally, we have treated for headaches and running injuries.”

West Michigan Foot and Ankle, 333 N. Jebavy Dr., Pere Marquette Township is owned by Dr. Alexus Squires, wife of Dr. Weston Squires. It utilizes the same model of laser and has had equal successes.

“Up until now, patients from our area would have to travel to a city like Grand Rapids to receive this type of treatment,” Dr. Weston Squires said. “We are very excited to bring this quality of care to our rural area. Each of our offices has a laser.”
