Foot pain is a common complaint and can have many causes. Most foot ailments respond well to Laser Therapy. Many patients will receive significant pain relief after just one, 15-minute treatment.
Benefits of Laser Therapy for Foot Pain:
- Laser therapy can reduce inflammation, and as a result, diminish pain.
If you have bruising or inflammation on your foot, a podiatrist can use a laser to drain any swollen areas. The less inflammation you have, the less pain you will have a well. One popular laser being used to do this is called the Diowave Class IV High Power Therapeutic Laser for foot and/or ankle pain
- Cell growth and tissue repair occur quickly with laser therapy
The use of a laser emits protons that are able to go deep down into the tissues of your foot. These protons allow cells to grow and reproduce at a fast pace, helping to heal your foot.
- Laser therapy can fix the issue with your foot, rather than just masking it.
Too often, doctors will prescribe oral pain medication to mask the hurt you are feeling in your foot. Instead of covering up the problem, laser therapy actually corrects it. And even better news- in most cases the problem never occurs again!
- There are no side effects associated with laser therapy.
Instead of suffering from side effects such as weight gain, moodiness, and sleepiness caused by oral pain medication, laser therapy offers a correction to your foot problem without all of the side effects.
- Laser therapy can treat a wide variety of foot pain causes.
Whether you are suffering from pain associated with plantar fasciitis (heel pain), types of tendonitis in Achilles tendon, Posterior Tibial Tendon or Peroneal Tendons), peripheral neuropathy joint pain sprains to the foot or ankle, or inflammation – laser therapy can help you feel well again. In particular, the Diowrae 15 laser can penetrate the areas you are having a problem with much deeper than other lasers.
- Laser therapy heals wounds on the foot faster than other treatments
Laser light is known for stimulating healing in damaged tissue. This makes it very effective on open wounds or urns on the foot.
- Laser therapy treatment time is short
It typically only takes 10 minutes of laser therapy per foot for one treatment. Several treatments may be necessary over several weeks for optimum results. Even so, this is so much more convenient and easier than other treatments that dent work as well and may take weeks to feel any improvement.
These short, painless treatments can improve your life and get you on the fast track to feeling like yourself again.
