Lyftogt Perineural Injection Treatment (Lyftogt P.I.T.®)

Duration 30 min to 40 min 
Lyftogt P.I.T.® is a safe and effective treatment for an acute or chronic painful conditions due to neurogenic inflammation as a result of scars after a surgery, sport and occupation or other non-malignant pain related issues. 
It was first discovered and later significantly developed by New Zealand physician Dr. John Lyftogt. 
I had the privilege to learn the technique directly from Dr. Lyftogt himself. 


The treatment consists of a series of small, very superficial (just underneath of a skin) injections of a medical-grade sugar solution. It is administered along neural pathways located in areas of focused and diffuse pain. Because the injections are made superficially, with a thin needle, a discomfort is minimal and the treatment is usually well tolerated. 

Every treatment aims to alleviate pain. Most patients experience an immediate reduction in painful symptoms, with optimal results achieved in five to ten treatments spaced a week or two apart. This leads to a gradual reduction of overall pain, facilitation of regenerative process of a compromised tissue and improved function.
