The use of lasers for both medical and aesthetic procedures has been increasing in the last couple of decades. Lasers have been implemented in fields such as optometry and dermatology and have been proven to be extremely effective and convenient. Whilst laser therapy has been included in a variety of medical fields as a replacement or an addition to traditional treatment methods, many are still surprised by its use in Podiatry.
Podiatry Station is committed to providing our patients with the latest and most innovative medical technology available to ensure that they receive the most effective treatment and the highest quality of care by our team. Therefore, we are very proud to announce that Podiatry Station will now be offering MLS Class IV Laser Therapy as a treatment option for a variety of conditions that could affect your everyday life.
MLS Class IV Laser Therapy is becoming the go-to treatment in Podiatry for many conditions, including pain relating to MSK conditions, fungal foot and toe infections, ligament injuries, ulcers and wounds, as well as pain associated with inflammation due to arthritis. But what exactly is laser therapy and how does it work in Podiatry?
Laser therapy uses the light of multiple wavelengths to penetrate the tissue and stimulate cell regeneration and healing. MLS Class IV Laser Therapy is a non-invasive and safe way to manage, and ultimately, eliminate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. Using light energy, the laser reaches the damaged cells in the body to stimulate and speed up the natural healing process via increased speed of cell reproduction.
MLS laser therapy is an effective way to manage pain associated with many conditions, both chronic and acute. There are no known negative side effects, and most patients report feeling little to no discomfort whilst receiving treatment. When used correctly, MLS Class IV Laser Therapy can help with the treatment of even the most persistent of conditions.
MLS Class IV Laser Therapy is a drug-free, pain-free, and non-invasive way to treat a variety of conditions. This form of laser therapy is extremely effective in the treatment of ailments affecting soft tissues and ligaments, which makes it the perfect choice for many podiatric conditions. Some of the most popular include:
Plantar Fasciitis – Plantar fascia, the fibrous tissue that provides support for the arch and midfoot, and is responsible for keeping your foot mobile, can easily become irritated and inflamed, resulting in chronic pain and loss of foot flexibility. Laser therapy can relieve the pain associated with plantar fasciitis without reliance on pain medication.
Wounds and Ulcers – Laser therapy and its ability to accelerate the healing process make it the ideal option for the treatment of wounds and ulcers caused by a variety of factors, including diabetes. Diabetic ulcers are typically difficult to treat via traditional methods, therefore, the accelerated wound healing properties of MLS Class IV Laser Therapy make it an ideal choice for the treatment of this notoriously bothersome condition.
Toe and Nail Fungus – Laser therapy uses the light of multiple wavelengths to penetrate the tissue and stimulate cell regeneration and healing. It is a painless procedure that helps the patient avoid the need for medication, which can have unpleasant side effects.
MLS Class IV Laser Therapy is quickly becoming the go-to treatment for many conditions and is often the recommended course of treatment for most soft-tissue injuries. If you have been suffering from chronic pain or are experiencing any discomfort in your feet, MLS Class IV Laser Therapy could be the right fit for you.
It is important to consult an experienced medical professional to determine whether you could benefit from MLS Class IV Laser Therapy.
