Laser Therapy treatment provides fast pain relief in acute foot and leg conditions like Achilles tendinopathy, Morton's neuroma and plantar fasciitis

What is Laser Therapy?

Class IV Low-Level Laser Light Therapy, which is commonly known as laser therapy and light therapy, utilises specific wavelengths of light in order to stimulate cellular activity. By stimulating mitochondrial cell activity, it quickly reduces pain and helps injured tissue move through the stages of healing. Healing therefore happens more quickly than it would naturally. This revolutionary non-invasive treatment modality has gained prominence for its ability to accelerate tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain.

How does the Laser treatment work?

During a therapy session, the targeted area is exposed to focused laser light. This then stimulates cellular energy production, enhancing the body’s natural healing processes. The therapeutic effects extend to improved blood circulation, reduced inflammation, and accelerated tissue regeneration along with pain relief.
