Laser Therapy Treatment for Common Podiatric Disorders
Modern medicine is a true miracle. Things people used to have to live with or have invasive surgeries or cumbersome treatments to correct can now be corrected by less invasive measures – measures that are often more effective. For example, one of the things we treat at Northeastern Foot & Ankle is fungal nails. It used to be something that had to be treated with a topical cream over several weeks can now be treated by laser therapy.
What Is Laser Therapy?
A laser (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is a treatment that uses highly concentrated heat to treat a variety of conditions. At Northeastern Foot & Ankle, we utilize some of the latest advancements in laser therapy, Erchonia Lunula Laser(R) and K-Laser(R), to aid in the treatment and pain management of fungal nails and other podiatric conditions when alternative treatment is ineffective.
What Can Laser Therapy Treat Besides Toenail Fungus?
Laser therapy can be used to treat a number of different podiatric conditions, including plantar fasciitis, warts, bunion pain, tendonitis, bruises, and more. Laser treatment can be effectively used for the treatment of foot pain caused by conditions such as plantar fasciitis, not only relieving pain but helping to encourage healing of the tissue.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
There are a number of benefits from laser therapy. Not only is it non-invasive, but there is no down time involved in the treatment. The procedure is quick and painless, and there are relatively few, if any, side effects.
