LASER THERAPY AND ITS APPLICATIONS IN PODIATRY
Did you sprain your ankle recently and it's not getting better?
Is the pain affecting your day-to-day life?
Are you eager to get back on your feet?
Laser therapy can be the perfect addition to your treatment regime to get you moving back on your feet!
What is laser?
Laser ( light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) therapy is an advanced treatment modality used in our clinics to increase the rate of healing in soft tissues and slight fractures, through the emission of light.
What is laser used for?
We use laser therapy at our clinics to provide our patients with immediate pain relief of common soft tissue injuries.
Common conditions where laser therapy can be beneficial include:
Achilles tendon pain
Trigger point pain
Repetitive work injury pain
Rheumatoid arthritis pain
How does it work?
Laser therapy works by blocking the pain pathway, increasing the blood flow to the area of soft tissue concerned, subsequently increasing the rate of healing and delivering immediate pain relief.
How long does it take to work?
The overall outcomes vary depending on the individual, the severity of the condition and duration of the injury. Pain relief can often be experienced immediately however, we recommend an average of 4-6 sessions for best results.
Is Laser therapy painful?
Our Podiatrists are trained to ensure all treatments we provide are as painless as possible, whilst still sustaining the effectiveness of the treatment.
With the low level cold laser therapy, you don't feel any discomfort (as if you are going into an infrared sauna). We simply emit the cold LASER probe to the affected area to deliver the dosage to help with healing the issue and regeneration of the cells.
Can Laser therapy be dangerous?
During treatment, we may provide you with protective eyewear to prevent any direct exposure from the laser beam. Being infrared, we can't see the beam with our naked eyes, so we can prevent any accidental exposure.
When Can I get back to my normal activity?
We would also reassess and issue a rehab plan to help you get back onto your feet and back into your normal activities without re -injuring yourself.
