Laser Therapy Q & A

Which foot conditions can be addressed with laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that can address a wide range of podiatric conditions, including:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Neuromas
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Heel pain
  • Foot and ankle injuries

Podiatric laser therapy is frequently used to eliminate fungal infection while reducing pain and improving the appearance of previously infected toenails.

How does laser therapy work?

The highly trained experts at Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC use the laser handpiece to deliver concentrated light energy to the tissues of your feet. The gentle heat of the laser stimulates your body’s natural healing response, which in turn promotes cellular renewal and speeds up the recovery process.

Laser therapy improves circulation, reduces pain and inflammation, and increases the production of collagen, a protein that’s necessary to repair muscle and connective tissue.

What should I expect during my laser therapy treatment?

The skilled team at the Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC does laser therapy treatments right in the office. Laser therapy is noninvasive, so there’s no anesthesia required.

During your laser therapy session, you relax with your foot in a comfortable position. Your provider passes the handpiece over the target area several times. You could feel some mild warmth and tingling, but laser therapy isn’t uncomfortable.

Following your treatment, you can return to most activities right away. Over the next several weeks, your body responds to your treatment, and your healing response speeds up. In most cases, you should notice an improvement in your pain, mobility, and function within 4-6 weeks.

Am I a candidate for laser therapy?

If you’re in good overall health and you have a mild to moderate condition that can benefit from laser therapy, you're likely a good candidate for laser therapy. More severe conditions can require a minimally invasive procedure or traditional surgery to achieve the best results.

The caring, experienced surgical team at the Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC can safely perform a variety of procedures to treat more severe foot and ankle conditions.
