  • Are there side effects to cold laser therapy?

    Walking in the wintertimeAs is the case with various medical procedures and treatments, there are side effects that can potentially come with cold laser therapy. When you are considering this particular treatment option, it is important to weigh these versus the benefits that can be achieved from the procedure.

    Cold laser therapy side effects may include bleeding, pain, infection, scarring, and skin color changes. These effects might not be permanent, however. If additional treatment sessions are needed, the side effects may return.

    In cases where the therapy is performed while a patient is under general anesthesia, the usual side effects of being put under anesthesia apply. These include nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, headache or confusion, and itching.

    In spite of the potential risks and side effects, there are many benefits that can be had from cold laser therapy. Contact Podiatry Associates, P.C. today to find out more about laser treatment.

  • How can I speed up my recovery after surgery?

    Stretching to speed up surgery recovery!Lots of factors impact your recovery after surgery, including how you clean and care for any incisions. Some simple factors include eating well and staying hydrated, participating in any physical therapy, taking your pain medication, preventing infection, and walking as soon as you’re able to. One new way to improve your healing, however, is a few sessions with the MLS pain laser.

    The MLS pain laser uses multiple wavelengths of intense light to both alleviate immediate pain and stimulate healing in tissues. This includes post-surgery swelling. One of the wavelengths encourages the body to absorb fluids in the tissues, reducing swelling. It also discourages inflammation. The same beam increases circulation as well, which helps with the overall healing process. The other wavelength more directly affects your pain. It induces “analgesia,” which means it temporarily “turns off” your pain receptors. This provides prompt relief.

    If you’re looking for more ways to speed up your surgery recovery and get back to doing what you love best, let our foot doctors at Podiatry Associates, P.C. help you. Make an appointment with us or request more information from us online. You can also call (303) 805-5156 to make an appointment at our offices in Chery Creek, Parker, Denver, and Castle Pines, CO.

  • How does MLS laser treatment help?

    Laser treatment helps you heal!The MLS laser is a unique tool to treat pain throughout the body. It’s quick, painless, and has no known side effects. More importantly, though, it both stimulates healing and alleviates discomfort right away. This sets it apart from other pain lasers that are available. It’s able to do this with its synchronized multiple-wavelength lasers.

    Different wavelengths of laser light accomplish different kinds of pain relief. A continuous beam from one wavelength stimulates the body to reduce inflammation and swelling, as well as improves circulation, helping the tissues repair themselves. However, it takes a little while to feel the relief. A pulsed beam from another wavelength quickly alleviates discomfort by interrupting the process that sends pain signals to the brain, but it isn’t as effective for the inflammation and swelling. By synchronizing these together, the MLS laser is able to combine their effects for better healing. Not only do you experience pain relief fairly quickly, you also stimulate healing in the body.

    If you’d like to know more about pain lasers and how they could help your chronic or acute discomfort, or even be a part of your physical therapy, contact the foot doctors at Podiatry Associates, P.C. in Castle Pines, Parker, and Denver, CO.
