Our Podiatrist In Scarborough, ME Can Help With Your Foot & Ankle Pain With Cold Laser Therapy
COLD LASER THERAPY
We employ the use of LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy), also known as Cold Laser Therapy. It is a safe, painless treatment for numerous neuromuscular and skin conditions and disorders.
Why Laser Therapy?
Around the world, laser therapy is rapidly becoming the choice for patients seeking painless, non-invasive, and drug-free treatments for a wide variety of injuries, pain syndromes, neurological conditions, and pathologies. It can heal wounds and fractures up to 60% faster and reduce the cost of treatment for many conditions. In the UK it has become the treatment of choice for whiplash injuries and shingles.
What is Laser Therapy?
Low-level lasers send accurately measured, non-thermal photons of light to the appropriate treatment sight. These light waves supply energy to the body as they penetrate up to 4 inches of the skin's layers, optimizing the immune responses of the blood. This has anti-inflammatory and immunostimulate effects, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell. This enables the cells to heal and repair themselves at 0 greatly accelerated rate.
Is Laser Therapy Safe?
Low Level Therapy is very safe. It is FDA approved and has been used for over 20 years internationally. Extensive documentation and studies have shown it to be effective and safe. Your clinician will thoroughly, examine your records, evaluate your condition, and design a treatment program if laser therapy is appropriate for you.
Is Laser Therapy Painful?
For most people, laser therapy is quite passive. 3-5% have reported a slight tingling or tapping in a nerve or on a nerve pathway. Some feel a slight sensation of warmth. The most noticeable sensation is of the probe head of the laser as it comes in contact with the skin. The majority of patients, however, feel ·nothing during a treatment.
What Results Can I Expect From A laser Treatment?
A treatment can take from 2 to 30 minutes. Many factors, such as the severity and depth of the condition, will determine the duration of a treatment and the number of visits needed to provide the maximum amount of relief. Following a laser therapy session, approximately 75-80% of patients notice an immediate improvement in their condition. Some patients, however, need 3-4 sessions before noticing an improvement in their condition. It is important to follow the clinician's recommended course of treatment. The majority of patients need 4-5 treatments while others might need 10-18 treatments.
Will Laser Treatments Provide Me With Long lasting Results?
Laser therapy sessions speed up the healing process in the cells that can help create a stronger and longer lasting effect. Your clinician is committed to providing you with the best care possible. The more you adhere to your treatment plan, the better and more long lasting the results will be. Many patients' conditions are permanently resolved after completing their treatment plans.
