Drug-free pain relief is the goal for most of us. Now we can offer you a non-surgical option that truly has the power to eliminate or significantly reduce your pain. Five to ten brief treatments with this powerful laser is all it takes to realize life-changing results. LiteCure works by flooding the tissue with photons, energizing the damaged cells, and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation and thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain. Treatments take just a few minutes; however, the therapeutic effects continue to soothe and heal long after you leave the office.
There is no discomfort during treatment, simply a deep, gentle warmth as your body’s cells respond to the light. There are no known side effects. LiteCure is a non-invasive therapy with long-lasting results.
Pain results from trauma, inflammation, and/or cellular disruption, malfunction, or impaired cellular function. Healing and pain relief come with cellular normalization. Photons enable cells to perform optimally by stimulating them to initiate bio-chemical reactions, which produce enzymes and ATP (usable energy). Use of laser light enhances cellular function and can also encourage the formation of collagen and cartilage in damaged joints and the repair of tendons and ligaments.
Apart from the musculoskeletal symptoms, some patients also experience dizziness, difficulty swallowing, nausea, and even blurred vision after a whiplash injury. While these symptoms are disconcerting, in some cases, they disappear within a relatively short time. If they persist, it is very important to inform your doctor that they are not resolving. Vertigo (the sensation of the room spinning) and ringing in the ears may also be seen. Some patients may feel pain in the jaw. Others will even complain of irritability, fatigue, sensitivity to light or sound, and difficulty concentrating. These symptoms often resolve quickly but may persist for weeks, months, or even years.
Another important and interesting aspect of whiplash is that the signs and symptoms often do not develop until 2 to 48 hours after the injury (sometimes even later). This scenario is relatively common but not completely understood. Some speculate that it may be due to delayed muscle soreness, a condition seen in other circumstances.
