The Benefits of Laser Therapy for Your Feet

Suffering from foot pain? Dr. Charles Chapel and the team at Chapel Podiatry in Brooksville, serving Spring Hill, Homosassa, and Hudson, FL offer laser therapy and other effective relief techniques.

Benefits of Laser Therapy for Your Feet 

Laser therapy is an incredible technology used to serve many purposes and treat various areas of the body, including the feet. In this guide, Dr. Chapel and the team at Chapel Podiatry explain what laser therapy is and the benefits it provides for foot health and recovery.

Basics of Laser Treatment 

Therapeutic laser technology emits low levels of laser light into the treatment site. The cells of the deep tissues absorb this light, which causes a natural response in the body that includes the following benefits for foot health.

Increases Blood Flow 

More blood flows to the treated site – in this case, your feet. As blood flow improves, it delivers more oxygen and healing nutrients to the target area. This increase in oxygen and nutrients improves the function of your cells and helps heal damaged ones.

Reduces Inflammation and Swelling 

As blood flows better, waste from damaged cells is moved along. As therapeutic laser technology also improves lymphatic drainage, the waste is removed from your body more quickly. All of these benefits combined lead to a reduction in inflammation and swelling.

Stimulates Tissue Regeneration 

As the light is absorbed, it is converted to energy which stimulates the regeneration of damaged cells. This helps treat injuries in the skin, nerves, tendons, muscles, ligaments, and more much faster than many other techniques can achieve.

Natural Pain Relief 

Whether your foot pain comes from an injury or working on your feet for long periods, therapeutic laser treatment can provide relief. In addition to the benefits above – all of which help achieve relief more quickly – laser treatment also stimulates the production of endorphins. These are hormones that are known as natural pain relievers.

Unlike some other types of pain relief, laser treatment does it completely naturally. The technique is not invasive nor does it require the use of addictive substances. Instead, it simply empowers the body to carry out natural processes to provide relief from conditions such as:

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis

It’s also often used for post-surgical recovery.
