At Freeland Foot & Ankle Clinic, we work hard every day to offer our patients the best possible care for their problems. We want to get you back to doing what you love! One of the ways we do this is by investing in state-of-the-art treatment options, including laser therapy.
Therapeutic laser therapy is an exciting new technology that can help with a wide variety of common foot, ankle, and toenail problems. Since bringing the HyperBlue Plus laser into our practice, we've already seen some incredible results. It could make a real difference in your life.
Laser Therapy for Foot and Ankle Pain
Laser therapy is an effective remedy for both acute and chronic soft tissue damage and pain, including:
- Muscle pain
- Sprained ankles
- Joint pain and stiffness
- Heel pain
The device targets specific trigger points in the body with laser energy. The laser operates using wavelengths adjusted to serve your particular needs best.
When stimulated by the laser, circulation to the affected area improves, delivering a greater supply of oxygen and nutrients where you need it most. Pain is reduced, metabolism increases and your body’s own natural repair mechanisms are accelerated. By incorporating laser therapy into a treatment plan, patients can realize a dramatic improvement in symptoms and shorten their recovery from injury. In some cases, it can even help you avoid the need for surgery.
Laser Therapy for Fungal Nail Infections
Laser therapy is also an effective tool to help eliminate stubborn fungal infections and improve the cosmetic appearance of your toenails. Unlike topical medications, which take a long time to show results and often involve thinning the nail, the laser can pass through the nail to target the fungi directly below. And unlike anti-fungal medications, there is no risk of damaging side effects.
Once the fungi have been eliminated, clear and healthy nail growth can begin. Often there is significant visual improvement after just one or two sessions. Eventually, the damaged portion of the nail grows off, and only a healthy nail remains.
