Advanced Technology for Your Foot & Ankle Health
New West Podiatry is thrilled to be able to offer our state-of-the-art Class IV laser foot and ankle treatment in Levittown and New York, NY. Laser treatment is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment that uses focused light to treat a wide range of foot and ankle conditions. This revolutionary treatment allows deeper penetration without heat, incisions, or negative side effects. Laser treatment helps patients by relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting wound healing and soft tissue repair.
How Does Laser Treatment Work?
The laser converts light into biochemical energy. When this energy enters your tissues, it improves blood supply and circulation and stimulates your body’s cells into repairing themselves. The result is a reduction in edema (swelling) and a faster rate of healing.
Studies have shown that laser treatment is equal to or more effective than other forms of physical therapy. These studies were performed at multiple prestigious institutions, including Harvard University.
What Does Laser Treatment Entail?
You won’t need any drugs or invasive surgery with laser treatment. During a session, we position the laser above your skin, and the laser light penetrates through your skin into your body’s tissues. You will feel little to no sensation during this pain-free treatment. In fact, some people even fall asleep during their treatment session!
A laser treatment typically lasts about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area needing treatment. We usually recommend that patients receive treatment 2 to 3 times per week, although the frequency will vary based on your individual needs. The total number of visits for laser treatment will also vary, depending on the type and severity of your condition. Commonly, patients need between 6 and 12 visits, although some conditions such as severe arthritis undergo ongoing periodic care to control pain.
For some patients, we may recommend that you combine laser treatment with another form of therapy or treatment to maximize your results.
