Laser therapy is a FDA approved, non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. It is effective in treating acute and chronic pain, as well as post surgical pain. This pain relief treatment is a safe alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 15 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. During treatment you feel a soothing warmth that identifies the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation.
Most patients see results within 3 to 5 short treatments. LiteCure Medical lasers work by flooding the tissue with photons, which energizes cells resulting in increased circulation to the injured area and ultimately pain reduction.
Laserpuncture is a non-invasion alternative to acupuncture in treating musculoskeletal and spinal pain. The treatment consists of using the laser at acupoints along specific meridians. A typical treatment would last about 5-15 minutes depending on the condition. Chronic conditions would require 1-3 treatments per week.
