What Is Laser Pain Therapy?

 

Laser pain therapy uses light energy from a laser to reduce pain and inflammation, speed up the healing process of damaged tissues, provide relaxation to the muscles, and stimulate nerve regeneration. Laser pain therapy is exceptionally effective in treating all kinds of acute heel pain. The wavelength and power of the laser beam determine the capacity of the laser to penetrate into the body. At Dalhousie Station Foot Clinic, we use laser therapy for foot ailments such as plantar fasciitis treatment and heel pain treatment in Calgary. Schedule an appointment today.

 

How It Works

Class IV Lasers are used to deliver laser light into the body in order to increase circulation, decrease swelling, reduce pain, and enhance tissue repair. The laser light increases metabolic activity in your body’s cells, which in turn draws nutrients and oxygen to the treated area, promoting healing and restoration of function.


For patients with chronic and acute pain, this treatment can be transformative.


Depending on your condition and symptoms, treatments can range from daily to two or three times a week, tailing off as your symptoms and pain decrease. Treatment usually takes less than 10 minutes. Improvement may be felt immediately, though it usually requires multiple treatments for a noticeable change.

The following are the benefits of our laser therapy for heel pain treatment in Calgary:

Pain relief

Faster tissue repair and vascular activity

Trigger and acupuncture points

Benefits of Laser Pain Therapy

Laser pain therapy has been in use for decades, and its efficacy has been recorded in thousands of published studies.

FAQs

The following are some commonly asked questions about our heel pain treatment in Calgary:

  • What Is the Process to Treat Ingrown Toenails?
    Depending on the severity of the infection, the doctor may trim a part or remove one side of your nail back to the cuticle. A disinfectant and chemical will be applied to the base of the nail to prevent that part from growing back. Serious infections may require antibiotics and removal of part of the toenail. This procedure can be performed at our clinic in Calgary, under local anesthetic to prevent pain.
  • How Can I Prevent Ingrown Toenails?
    It’s best to prevent getting ingrown nails in the first place by following a few basic steps like: Avoid cutting nails too short and cutting unevenly at the corners. Try to cut them straight across. Make sure your socks and shoes fit properly. You should be able to wiggle your toes easily in your shoes. Avoid trauma to the toe area. If you run, play soccer or other sports, try to go barefoot for an hour or two after playing.
  • Can I Treat an Ingrown Toenail At Home?
    You can treat your ingrown toenails at home if the problem is not too severe and doesn’t show any signs of infection, swelling, sensitivity, oozing or foul odour. You could try letting the nail grow out with proper care and the following steps: Soak it and wait. Soak your foot in warm water with Epsom salt or a mild detergent and apply an antibiotic ointment and bandage to the area after drying. Remove it yourself if there’s no infection. After soaking your feet in a very warm bath with Epsom salt, use clean nail-cutting tools to clip the affected area and apply antibiotic ointment when you’re done. Book your appointment at Dalhousie Station Foot Clinic: Our podiatrist will help diagnose and treat an infected ingrown toenail with effective and relatively painless solutions.
