Low Level Laser Therapy

This blog discusses Anuj Soni attending a LLLT course and how this type of therapy works and which conditions are suitable for this kind of treatment.

On the 25th of April 2015 I attended a course on the use of Low Level Laser therapy (LLLT). The course was designed to inform and enhance podiatrists and other healthcare professional skills and knowledge on the use of LLLT.

LLLT works by generating a cold laser beam, which emits harmless photons into the tissue, stimulating a photochemical interaction between the cells and the photons. As the cold laser enters the tissue it alters the cell membrane permeability allowing the photons to interact and stimulate the cell’s mitochondria. The interaction will increase cellular activity, which in turn increases tissue healing rates through reduced pain and inflammation.

LLLT can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions.  At The Footcare Centre LLLT is extensively used to treat common foot and ankle issues such as:

LLLT is drug free, non-invasive and virtually pain free which is why it is so popular with our clients.

Please do not hesitate to contact The Footcare Centre to book a consultation with one of the podiatrists if you are suffering with any of the above conditions and are interested in LLLT as a treatment option. To make an appointment either book online or call 01932 849373.
