He is chairman of the Colorado Chiropractic Journal Club; with which he has co- authored papers on; Hip Dysplasia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, and a case study on Lumbar Osteomyelitis. He was co-author in a Chronic Neck Pain study with Colorado University Health Science Center study and currently involved a co-author, in a second study with CU on Lumbar Spine pain and Laser Therapy. Dr. Morries, presented a Pilot Study on treatment of 55 cases of sciatica, with treatment by manipulation and laser therapy, which precipitated the current larger study.
In 2009, Dr. Gulevich, MD, neurologist and Dr. Morries presented their paper at the American Academy of Pain Medicine and was published in the 2009 Journal. He recently (9/2011) presented two papers at the NAALT convention, sponsored by University of Wisconsin, on laser therapy for Back Pain and Polyneuropathy. He is currently serving his second consecutive session with the Colorado Workers Compensation Guidelines committee, currently on Traumatic Brain Injury.
Dr. Morries is preparing a Laser Therapy based study, regarding the treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury. Dr. Morries, Dr. Gulevich, MD and Dr. T. Henderson, MD have completed a case study, involving using a nuclear medicine brain scans, for diagnosis. Treatment consisted of cognitive behavior therapy, laser therapy and exercise. The results were remarkable. For the proposed study, there are a number of Medical providers, PhD's, Therapist, and a Study Consultant from Harvard-MIT, on the panel.
Dr. Steve Gulevich, MD

What We Do
Laser Therapy, using a Class IV laser. Therapy advances the blood circulation through the injured tissue, to promote healing. It also stimulates ATP in the treated cells, which increases energy of the cells. Laser has been known to stimulate the function of over 100 genes. Laser has been postulated to increase nerve growth by stimulating Nerve Growth Factor and stimulating Neurogenesis.
All About Therapeutic Care
How Does Laser Work
The Class IV laser: has the power (Watts) to penetrate the muscular tissue for a therapeutic range of about 2 1/2 inches to 3 inches. The Near Infra Red wave stimulates the Mitochrondra of each cell, to stimulate the production of ATP. ATP in combination with other changes, stimulates transcription factors, which stimulate >100 genes to become active. This increase tissue oxgenation, NGF nerve growth factor, and other factors to promote tissue healing. Pain reduction, occurs by reduction of subtanc P and other prostoglandalins, to reduce inflamation, in the local tissues..
In the brain, a limited amount of the NIR penetrates the skull to stimulate the mitochrondral of the neuro cells, this in turn stimulates blood infusion and increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation. There is reference to the stimulation of Nerve Growth factors, and neurogenesis.
In Short: The laser increases the blood flow in the brain.
