If you’re experiencing foot pain, laser foot therapy could be an effective solution.
This foot care treatment can be used to alleviate leg, knee, ankle, and foot pain, including heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis. It will also help with tendonitis, joint inflammation, peripheral neuropathy and sprains. The laser deeply penetrates the affected area to remove inflammation, relieving pain and discomfort. In most cases, the problem is permanently resolved, compared with pain medication that simply masks symptoms without treating the underlying cause.
Phototherapy (Super luminous and laser)
Phototherapy provides light energy to cells to function – promoting enhanced tissue healing, pain control, and stimulation of the vascular, immune, and lymphatic systems. It is similar to photosynthesis in plants; sunlight is absorbed by the plant and converted into energy that the plant can utilize for growth. In the body, light sensitive chromospheres and other elements within the cell absorb light energy, initiating a series of important photochemical changes such as increased production of nitric oxide, singlet oxygen and ATP, as well as an increase in the cell membrane’s permeability. The additional increased energy and effects result in normalization of the cell function when cell function is impaired. Since the following activities can occur in all types of cells (muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves etc.) a number of wide-ranging conditions can be treated.
Practice Benefits of Phototherapy
Effective in treating conditions that do not normally respond to traditional therapy interventions. Fast and effective outcomes, patients and families are enthusiastic about their positive results, patients often feel better within the first few treatments.
Increased Cellular Activities
Cell metabolism, collagen synthesis, Osteoblast production, increased circulation and the formation of new capillaries by release of growth factor, T-Cell production, production of neurotransmitters (e.g. endorphins, serotonin, ACTH), Action potential of nerve cells.
Accelerated tissue healing by 40%, enhanced tensile strength in tissue repair, increases callous and bone formation, reduces or eliminated pain, decreases edema and inflammation, improves immune response.
Benefits of Phototherapy
It is non-invasive, accelerated and enhanced clinical outcomes, effective for treating conditions that are difficult to treat, cumulative clinical effects, both quick response and long lasting results, short treatment times compared to other modalities and light therapies.
