Surviving a catastrophic accident is no easy nor simple feat; and even after injuries heal, there may be lasting effects on your health that need to be managed in the long-term. These effects can include acute soft tissue trauma and chronic pain, among others, and require ongoing medical care to help you adjust to a normal lifestyle again.
From extensive surgeries to therapy, conditioning exercises, dietary restrictions, and necessary lifestyle changes, the road to a full recovery can be taxing. But with the rise of alternative treatments, such as low level laser therapy (LLLT) products for pain relief, treatment can be more manageable and accessible, especially with the Handy Rx LLLT device you can use at home, or carry with you to prevent or treat pain as it occurs.
LLLT Products for Acute Soft Tissue Trauma
Acute soft tissue trauma occurs when damage is sustained by the muscular, neural, lymphatic, and vascular tissues. To protect itself against further damage, the body’s natural reaction is to ‘splint’ the injury with edema, which is an accumulation of thin or watery fluids in spaces between tissues or cell interstices. However, this process causes swelling. While the swelling prevents excessive movement of the damaged tissue, it also results in traumatic pain from the injury, as well as from the swelling itself.
To reduce the pain-causing swelling, LLLT products like the Handy Rx can provide pain relief. As it distributes combined energies in the injured area, the efficiency of the lymphatic system is restored, resulting in a corrected fluid balance and reduced edema to improve the range of movement. LLLT also provides pain relief by decreasing the transmission of pain by C-fiber nerves, increasing overall cell metabolism that allows cells to replicate and heal much faster.
LLLT Products for Chronic Pain Relief
Pain is chronic when it continues or recurs for a month, or beyond the typical recovery period after an illness or injury. Chronic pain can also occur over the course of several months or years due to a chronic medical condition, such as cancer or therapies for it, pre-operative pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
Chronic pain is traditionally treated or managed with either over-the-counter or prescription painkillers, physical therapy, acupuncture, application of electrical impulses, psychological therapy, and nerve blocking for temporary pain relief. More aggressive treatments include neuromodulation, which is the implantation of a device that sends electrical impulses; and the implantation of drug pumps for pain control or relief.
LLLT products like the Handy Rx have the biggest potential to replace these traditional and aggressive chronic pain relief treatments, especially for chronic and acute pain in the spine and joints because of safety, comfort, and efficacy.
There are many negative health effects associated with long-term non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory narcotics, and opiates on the gastrointestinal and nervous systems. Add to that, the implantation of foreign objects in the body, such as neuromodulators and drug pumps come with the risk of infection, bleeding, and adverse reaction to anesthesia. In contrast, LLLT products for pain relief are noninvasive and nontoxic. Simply applied over the affected region, the laser can safely penetrate affected tissues and administer pain relief.
LLLT is also associated with a higher level of comfort as it is noninvasive, and with devices such as the Handy Rx, pain relief can easily be administered in the comforts of your own home, and on your own time. The Handy Rx LLLT device for pain relief has also been tested for efficacy, proving that it has the ability to provide not only fast and effective pain relief; but as a pain management option has demonstrated the ability to provide enough relief and reduce edema build up so that loss of limb function or amputation can be avoided, allowing corrective surgery to take place in a timely manner.
