Foot pain can be a debilitating problem that prevents you from living your life to the fullest when exercise becomes impossible, and the simple act of walking your dog becomes something to dread, it may be time for you to look into laser therapy for your foot pain. LASER stands for ‘Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation and If you’re not very familiar with this kind of therapy, read the 7 reasons on why laser therapy is ideal for foot pain below:
- 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 Drawave Class IV High Power Therapeutic Laser for foot and/or ankle pain
- 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. Even better, laser therapy also reduces any v that may occur.
- Cell growth and tissue repair occur quickly with laser therapy
The use of a laser emits protons that are able to go down into the tissues of your foot. These protons allow cells to grow and reproduce at a fast pace, helping to heal your foot
- 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.
- 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
- 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!
These short, painless treatments can improve your life and get you on the fast track to feeling like yourself again. Do you have foot and/or ankle pain? Does it hurt when you walk, or is it limiting your physical activity?
