Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy in Keysborough

At The Footcare Clinic, we love to invest in the latest innovative technology that can help reduce healing time, improve recovery and get people back to doing what they love sooner.

At our clinic we use the K-Laser – a powerful class IV laser machine that can treat many advanced low level laser solutions which are:

  • Pain-free
  • Drug-free
  • non-invasive treatment.

The K-Laser achieves these therapeutic effects by interacting with tissues at a cellular level. It does this by:

  • increasing blood flow
  • stimulates the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the treated area
  • promotes an accelerated rate of healing and a reduction in pain thereby enabling the person to return to their regular daily activity as quickly as possible.

What Conditions Can Laser Therapy Help Treat?

In short, laser therapy is a fast-growing technology used to treat a multitude of conditions that require stimulation of healing, relief of pain and inflammation, and restoration of function.

Common foot and leg conditions that can be treated using laser therapy are:

  • Acute injuries such as ankle sprains
  • Plantar Fasciopathy (Heel pain) especially if interstitial tear is present
  • Forefoot pain (Morton’s Neuroma, intermetatarsal bursitis, capsulitis)
  • Achilles tendon pain
  • Joint pain due to Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  • Breaking down scar tissue (especially post-surgery scars)
  • Managing pain and swelling post-surgery (bunion surgery, knee surgery)
  • Tendinopathies (peroneal, posterior tibialis etc)
  • Chilblains
  • Haematoma
  • Fungal nail infection (onychomycosis)

FAQ's

It’s important to note that LLLT does not correct situations involving structural deficits or instabilities whether in bone or in soft tissue. Our Podiatrists will combine other treatment modalities such as orthotic therapy and/or foot mobilisation therapy, in conjunction with LLLT to get the best outcome.
