There are numerous papers which show that cold laser affects the activity of cells and chemicals within the cell. It has been shown that cold laser can encourage the formation of stem cells which are key building blocks in tissue reparation. It also affects chemicals such as cytochrome c and causes a cascade of reactions which stimulates the healing. There is much research to show that cold laser affects healing and there are now several very good class 1 studies to show that laser can be effective. The London Podiatry Centre uses the most advanced laser systems in the world How long does cold laser treatment last? Cold laser treatment is usually administered once a week for 6 to 8 weeks. During this time, tissue healing tends to occur. The London Podiatry Centre may combine the laser with other treatments. For example, if you have underlying biomechanical imbalances that have led to your injury then these also need to be addressed. This might mean different footwear, orthoses or physiotherapy.
There are lots of different types of lasers on the market and there is certainly a lot of evidence that laser can help and work in the treatment of a range of conditions. The London Podiatry Centre uses the lunula erchonia cold laser system to treat fungal nails and we also have the 635 erchonia laser system which is specifically for the treatment of conditions such as soft tissue injuries of the feet, back pain and diabetic neuropathy. These lasers have been shown in a number of studies to be effective in the treatment of a range of conditions.
Yes, there is now a level 1 paper which shows that cold laser can be effective in the treatment of diabetic neuropathy and therefore potentially other forms of neuropathy. The London Podiatry Centre has the latest laser systems for this condition. Does cold laser therapy help scar tissue? The London Podiatry Centre does not specifically use cold laser for the management of scar tissue although this can be used and there is some anecdotal evidence that it can be helpful. We tend to use other methods such as anti-scarring gels, dressings and where necessary steroid to help with the condition.
It has been shown that cold laser can be beneficial in the treatment of nerve injury so therefore it can be helpful in treating nerve damage. There are level 1 papers to support this. The London Podiatry Centre has the erchonia 635 laser system which has specifically been shown to be effective in the banishment of neuropathic pain.
The London Podiatry Centre uses cold laser systems which have no specific recovery period. They do not generate heat instead causing chemical reactions within the cell and the body to stimulate healing.
Soft tissue laser stimulates healing by altering cellular activity i.e. the chemical processes that occur within a cell. This has been shown in numerous studies. They can help with the proliferation of stem cells and have a direct effect on mitochondria which influence the ageing process. They stimulate the release of chemicals to facilitate healing.
