At Capital Podiatry Associates, we’re never satisfied with the status quo. We work hard to make sure our patients have access to the latest, most effective, evidence-backed treatment options—because we know you deserve them, and you want to be back on your feet as quickly and safely as possible!
One tool we frequently use to help our patients get superior results is the MLS laser therapy system. Incorporating laser therapy into a comprehensive treatment plan can have profoundly positive effects for patients with a wide range of conditions, including accelerated tissue healing and rapid reduction in pain and inflammation.
Laser Therapy for Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes, although there are other possible causes of the condition. As nerves in the feet start to degrade, you may notice intermittent sensations of tingling, burning, or shooting pain. Unfortunately, without treatment these symptoms tend to get increasingly severe, constant, and debilitating.
MLS laser therapy can not only help relieve nerve pain symptoms and slow further degeneration, but has even shown some promising results in terms of encouraging nerves to regenerate and heal. While nerve damage isn’t always fully reversible, MLS laser therapy is one of the most effective treatments yet developed—and for many people, it’s helped them regain sensation that they had lost and enabled them to return to activities they once enjoyed.
Laser Therapy for Post-Surgical Healing
MLS therapy is often considered as an alternative to surgery, especially for chronic injuries that haven’t healed through more traditional means.
However, in cases where surgery is necessary, MLS laser therapy can also be used to help significantly improve the recovery process. Potential benefits include reduced post-surgical pain, faster closing of the surgical wound, and lower risk of infection or other complications. Choosing MLS therapy for post-surgical recovery also usually means a reduction in your need for pain management medications as well.
