Lights tend to be taken for granted, but the holiday season offers many opportunities to show just how wonderful they are. From November 24-December 31, WildLights at The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens will feature more than 750,000 lights on display; some you might be able to see while taking a camel ride! If you suffer from nerve pain, the light of our laser therapy service can be wonderful for a different reason. Capable of easing discomfort and inflammation, laser treatment can be an effective complement to other treatments and home remedies for nerve pain.
Our Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy may sound intense, but it doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort. It doesn’t even leave a mark! The system uses specific wavelengths of light that can penetrate the skin and stimulate the cells in affected tissues. Think of it as providing the cells an energy boost, helping them engage in further recovery and repair.
Nerve conditions—and many other foot problems involving swelling and pain—may benefit from this treatment. Sessions tend to take about 10 minutes at most and have a cumulative effect. Many patients begin to feel improvement within a few sessions.
Of course, laser therapy is no reason to abandon methods to manage nerve pain at home. Massaging your feet will further help relieve pain, stimulate nerves, and improve your circulation. Also avoid crossing your knees for extended periods of time. Doing so increases pressure and can cause additional nerve damage. A good diet, putting a stop to smoking, and exercising within recommended levels of activity also go a long way toward good health and pain relief.
Don’t feel that pain is something you have to deal with on your own. Let Harvey Danciger, DPM help you determine the best ways to manage your pain and whether laser treatment may be right for you. Schedule an appointment through our website or call our Palm Desert office at (760) 568-0108.
