The Uses of Low Level Laser Therapy

Tuesday, 17 April 2018 19:18

Those suffering from foot and ankle pain, scarring, wounds, and damaged nerves may benefit from an alternative treatment method known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT works by stimulating the body’s mitochondria to produce higher amounts of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), a chemical that runs the body and heals tissue. When LLLT creates more ATP in the body, tissues heal faster and therefore promote faster relief overall.

Low Level Laser Therapy is useful in treating a number of podiatric conditions and symptoms. Some conditions include general foot and ankle pain, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, neuropathy, neuromas, arthritis, tendinitis, tendinopathy, nerve pain, wounds, sprains, and infection. The number of treatment sessions required will depend on the condition and its severity. Various areas of concern can be treated.

While light and laser therapy have been historically proven to be successful in healing wounds, the adaptation of LLLT in modern Western medicine has been rather slow. With treatment sessions lasting only about 5 minutes on average, a LLLT session can easily fit into a podiatrist’s schedule. LLLT is an advantageous new technology in the field of podiatry with it’s completely non-invasive nature and the absence of apparent side effects.
