Pain Laser Therapy Q & A

What is pain laser therapy?

Pain laser therapy is a noninvasive, non-surgical treatment that uses powerful laser light wavelengths to stimulate your body’s innate regeneration and recovery processes. With pain laser therapy, the goal is to heal the root cause of pain. 

Although you could always take medication for pain, it doesn’t work to heal your body in any way and thus prolongs your suffering. With pain laser therapy, you actually heal damaged tissue to end the pain from the inside out.

What foot and ankle problems can pain laser therapy treat?

Pain laser therapy at Eastside Podiatry Associates can help with a wide range of pain-causing conditions affecting your feet and ankles. Some common uses for pain laser therapy include:

  • Sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Non-healing or slow-healing wounds
  • General foot pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Arthritis
  • Stress fractures
  • Joint degeneration
  • Achilles tendinitis and other tendon inflammation

Pain laser therapy is a leading treatment choice in the case of sports injuries, diabetic foot problems, foot trauma, and many other situations that cause pain in your feet and ankles. Nearly any type of foot or ankle pain may benefit from a pain laser treatment, so ask Dr. Latifi at Eastside Podiatry Associates whether laser therapy could work for you if you don't see your pain-causing condition on this list. 

How does laser therapy for foot pain work?

During laser therapy, Dr. Latifi uses an advanced laser system to direct specific light wavelengths onto your affected tissue. Laser light works at the cellular level to:

  • Boost circulation and oxygen supply to the damaged area
  • Remove toxins
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve nerve function
  • Accelerate collagen production 
  • Prevent scar tissue formation
  • Reduce swelling 

All of these things help you heal faster, and that means a significant reduction of pain, stiffness, and other troublesome symptoms.

How many pain-relieving laser treatments do I need?

Laser treatment for foot and ankle pain usually takes as little as 10-15 minutes per session. Treatments are generally painless. Most patients get maximum pain relief with a series of sessions, with the exact number varying by your condition and needs. Dr. Latifi at Eastside Podiatry Associates can personalize a laser pain treatment for you.
