What if we told you there was a treatment that could target and eliminate the root cause of your foot pain? No more relying on painkillers or ice packs! This magical treatment is called laser therapy, and it may be just what you need to get back to your active lifestyle. Keep reading for more information about laser therapy and how it can help you.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a type of treatment that uses a focused beam of light to target specific areas of the body. The FDA-Cleared Class IV MLS Laser uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body’s own healing process to minimize pain, inflammation and promote healing. This is a cold laser that was designed to treat conditions without excessive thermal effect (a.k.a heat), so laser therapy is NOT painful. It uses specific wavelengths and a patented delivery system to speed up the process of relieving inflammation, pain and repairing damaged tissue.
Does it Work?
For 80-90% of patients, the answer is yes! Most patients feel a 75% reduction in pain after just six laser treatments performed in two weeks. Many patients who were scheduled for surgery were able to delay or cancel their surgery because MLS laser therapy significantly reduced or eliminated their pain.
Benefits of laser therapy include:
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Restore mobility
- Non-invasive treatment
- No known side effects
- Drug free
- Rapid results
To maximize the laser benefits, we combine treatment with the use of Mod Pod Soothe. Soothe is a pain-relieving stick that contains 1000mg of CBD, arnica, eucalyptus and lavender oils. This ultra-potent blend combined with laser therapy will significantly reduce pain and inflammation. You can also use Soothe in-between laser treatments to help keep your pain under control.
What Conditions Does Laser Therapy Treat?
Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including foot pain. It is often used as an alternative to traditional treatments, such as medication, steroid injections, or surgery. Some of the most common conditions we treat using laser therapy are:
- Achilles tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tendon tears
- Work/Sports injuries
- Post-surgical sites
- Sprains and strains
The best part is, we don’t only treat foot pain with laser therapy. We can treat any achy and painful area including your knees and back.
Is Laser Therapy Covered by Insurance?
Unfortunately, laser therapy is not billed to insurance at this time because it is considered regenerative medicine. We know that every penny counts and we want this type of treatment to be accessible to all our patients, so we offer payment plans to alleviate any financial burden. In addition, we offer laser packages that are designed to save you money. You can use FSA or HSA cards to pay for laser treatment.
So, if you’re looking for an alternative to medication or surgery, laser therapy may be the answer for you. This noninvasive treatment is a great way to reduce pain and inflammation without having to go under the knife. And if that’s not incentive enough, laser therapy is also a relatively quick and easy procedure – most appointments only last around 15 minutes. Ready to give it a try?
