Q How does laser therapy work?
At our podiatric office, we strive to provide our patients with the most effective and state-of-the-art treatment options available. Laser therapy is helping our patients on a regular basis find relief from their foot pain and problems.
Laser treatments use wavelengths of light that target specific tissues to promote healing. The laser draws oxygen, nutrients and blood flow to a damaged area to begin the repair process. It is very effective with conditions that cause swelling and inflammation such as arthritis, plantar fasciitis and tendonitis. It can reduce scar tissue, improve nerve function and close wounds with no discomfort during the treatment or side effects afterwards. The treatments are quick and the number of sessions required is dictated by the severity of your foot problem.
If you would like to know more about laser therapy or whether it would be an appropriate treatment option for your symptoms, you can call our Palm Desert, CA office at (760) 568-0108.
