DEEP TISSUE LASER THERAPY
Soft Tissue Laser Therapy is an FDA cleared modality that reduces inflammation, promotes healing and ultimately results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions and post-op pain.
The LiteCure LCT-1000 works by flooding the tissue with light photons of a specific wavelength, which research shows to energize cells resulting in increased circulation to the injured area.
Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy treatments are administered in 5 to 10 minutes with most patients seeing results within 3 to 5 treatments.
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy utilizes your body’s own recuperative abilities by stimulating increased cellular activity, inducing a series of healing responses in the injured tissues. During treatment you will feel a soothing warmth that identifies the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation and increased range of motion.
Despite fast treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce the inflammatory process for up 24 hours post treatment.
LiteCure Medical is the preferred brand of professional athletic trainers and is a clinically proven modality. LiteCure Medical is the leader in scientific research and education.
LiteCure Medical lasers are cleared by the FDA and adhere to strict ISO standards in order to provide you with the safest non-invasive treatment option on the market. Laser therapy provides you with a safe and effective alternative to drugs and surgery.

How does Laser Therapy work?
Laser therapy causes chemical reactions at the cellular level. The photon energy accelerates the healing process, increases metabolism and improves circulation at the site of injury. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of acute pain and injury, inflammation, chronic pain and post-operative conditions. It has been shown to accelerate the healing of damaged nerves, tendons and muscle tissue. Check out the video for a more detailed explanation:
What will you feel during laser therapy?
Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Patients feel a soothing warmth as laser energy gently penetrates the tissue and boosts your body’s own regeneration powers to relieve your pain. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy treatments are usually administered for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the body location. Results can be immediate but the most observed results are after 4 to 6 treatment sessions. The body continues to benefit from the effects of the therapy for 18-24 hours after treatment. During this time, modulated cellular activity leads to decreased pain and inflammation. Our class IV laser has a power output of 9 Watts! This is in comparison to class III lasers which operate at .5 Watts. This means that our laser is almost 20 times more powerful. We can accomplish in 6 minutes what the class III laser accomplishes in 120 minutes or 2 hours.
How do we incorporate deep tissue therapy into your physical therapy?
Clinically, the greatest effect of laser in the practice setting occurs in combination with either hands-on or instrument Chiropractic adjustments and other manual modalities such as massage, electrical muscle stimulation and neuromuscular re-education. It works synergistically with these procedures to augment the body’s own healing ability. The combination of these therapies allow us to get our patients better quicker with less residual discomfort and less formation of scar tissue! Deep tissue laser has even been show to reduce scar tissue formations from past injuries and surgical procedures.
Is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy right for you?
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy has become preferred by patients who have not responded to other interventions. Its ability to impact pain on a cellular level provides pain relief for not only simple conditions but chronic and complex conditions as well.
Is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy the Same as Cold Laser?
No, cold laser is not even in the same ball park as DTLT. There are many different types of laser apparatuses being used in Chiropractic clinics, medical clinics, physical therapy clinics and other healthcare clinics that are toted as being deep tissue laser. DTLT comes from a Class IV Medical Laser and is the only therapeutic laser that has the technology and ability to penetrate to the deeper tissues. All the other lasers barely penetrate through your layers of skin, some may get down a quarter of an inch but the LCT-1000 can penetrate up to three-quarters of an inch which is considerably deeper than other devices.

Testimonies of Actual Laser Patients
“As a professional soccer player I am constantly managing aches, strains and pain. Since Dr. Santiago has started treating my hamstring injury with the Litecure laser, my recovery time has been really fast. I was skeptical at first, my time is valuable and I cannot be messing with some new fangled toy. However, the results were truly dramatic. I like the fact that it is non invasive and drug free. It has helped me get back in the game post injury in record time and allowed me to perform at my peak, as I am typically pain free after one or two sessions with the laser. I would recommend this treatment to any athlete looking to optimize healing time. The Litecure laser is my go to modality for serious pain relief.”

“I had a tummy tuck surgery on May 24, 2007. After the procedure, a lump, hematoma, scar tissue, swelling and pain lingered below my breast bone. With just two treatments by the LiteCure Laser, my swelling and pain has decreased tremendously. I am looking forward to having one more treatment. There is no question that this laser was the best thing that has happened to me, because I avoided another operation just by having two treatments. Having had this experience I am able to serve my patients with deeper understanding and faith in this miraculous machine.”

“Dr. Kyle and his staff are excellent. I had never been to a chiropractor before and wasn’t sure what to expect. He made me feel safe and comfortable and thoroughly explained everything. I’ve been going for two months now and with adjustments, massage, and laser therapy my back pain has decreased almost to none! I’ve had such a great experience and I highly recommend Dr. Kyle.”
