Q
What types of conditions does laser therapy help?

A

Laser therapy—we use the MLS Laser system in our office—has shown to be effective in a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Neuropathy and nerve damage
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Sports injuries, including sprains and strains
  • Wounds

You’ll notice a lot of “-itis” words in that list—that suffix usually means the condition involves tissue inflammation, which laser therapy is especially good at treating. However, laser therapy has also proven helpful for situations as diverse as closing wounds, eliminating scar tissue, promoting faster healing, and even restoring nerve function. That’s because the wavelengths of light used by the system energize your body’s own natural healing processes by stimulating cellular activity.

Laser therapy is FDA approved and non-invasive. For more information or to set up an appointment with Dr. Danciger in Palm Desert, CA, please fill out and submit our online contact form, or give us a call at 760-568-0108.
