Class IV laser therapy is one of the most safe and effective ways to treat various conditions that cause foot and ankle pain! Laser therapy has a vast amount of benefits including:
- Accelerated cellular reproduction and growth – which is key in repairing the cells of cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and muscle tissue.
- Reduced scar tissue that typically develops from specific injuries. When patients have less scar tissue, the likelihood of chronic pain is also reduced.
- Decreased inflammation and increased blood circulation
Understanding Laser Therapy for Pain Management
With 26 bones in the foot alone, as well as major ligaments, tendons, joints, and nerves – it’s not surprising that millions of Americans suffer various types of foot and ankle pain.
Class IV laser therapy is used for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing and decrease inflammation.
When the light source is placed against the skin, photons penetrate several centimeters down and are absorbed by the mitochondria (the energy producing part of a cell). This energy results in the restoration of normal cell function.
The main goal of laser therapy is to stimulate the cell to perform its natural functions, but at an enhanced rate.
Laser therapy is a quick and easy treatment allowing patients to relax during the procedure.
In contrast to “cold lasers,” which provide no feeling or sensation, high power diode laser therapy provides a warm, soothing feeling.
Some of the Most Common Sources of Foot Pain Include:
- Plantar fasciitis – which often creates moderate to severe heel pain
- Tendonitis (Achilles Tendonitis | Posterior Tendonitis (PTTD) | Peroneal Tendonitis (tendonitis affecting the midfoot and arch area)
- Ankle sprains
- Neuroma (or a pinched nerve)
- Arthritis and inflammation
- Hallux limitus (or a stiff big toe joint)
Any one of these conditions can create chronic (long-term) pain or acute (short-term) pain.
