Laser Therapy

Laser therapy involves using red and infrared light on injuries to promote healing. The light is transformed into biochemical energy by the cells, which they use to initiate tissue repair. This biostimulating effect helps alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue repair.

In our podiatry practice, we use laser therapy to treat:

  • Soft tissue injuries

  • Arthritic joint pain

  • Nerve entrapment

  • Ulcers

Additionally, laser therapy can serve as an alternative to needles for acupuncture.

At Practical Podiatry, we utilise a hot laser. Laser therapy works by using a focussed wave length of light. UV light has been used to kill off germs for decades, our machine uses a wave length of light 300% stronger than UV light.This focussed wave of light along with the heat it generates is used to kill fungus and viruses.Laser therapy is used to treat fungal nail infections and used on warts.
