laser therapy in podiatry

Get your laser device to carry out the therapies most innovative podiatry

Laser therapy is an innovative methodology that has numerous applications in the field of podiatry. Within this field, different pathologies can be covered and treated: plantar warts, onychomycosis or inflammatory processes (tendinitis, fasciitis, enthesitis, etc.). 

Laser equipment specialized in podiatry achieves magnificent results since they apply all their technology to the care of patients' feet. In this section you can find the best selection of equipment and accessories that are equipped with the latest technology on the market. Versatile, powerful, portable devices that have with enormous benefits for both the patient and the podiatry professional.


What? What pathologies in the field of podiatry can we treat with laser?

- Onychomycosis: Onychomycosis is an infection of the nails produced by different types of fungi: dermatophytes, yeasts and molds. the nails affected by this condition tend to thicken and change their coloration, in many cases coming to detach from the nail bed. Both topical and systemic antifungal drugs have been the main therapeutic option to treat this condition for many years, but the long application times and high failure rate they make adhesion difficult. The goal of laser treatment in this condition is to heat the nail bed to temperatures between 40 and 60°C. to interrupt the growth of the fungus and at the same time prevent pain and necrosis of the surrounding tissues. In this way we manage to eliminate the fungus quickly, safely and painlessly.

- Plantar warts: Plantar warts, popularly known as "papillomas" They are skin lesions produced by the human papilloma virus (HPV). Contagion can be produced by direct or indirect contact through contaminated objects or surfaces. As in the case of onychomycosis, the laser acts through a thermal effect. It allows us to control the treated area with great precision without damaging the surrounding tissues. It can be used as a single treatment or in combination.

- Physical therapy: Laser therapy is a good therapeutic alternative for multiple physical problems such as muscle injuries, tendinopathies, physiopathies or disorders degenerative joints. It allows us to use different wavelengths, achieving a greater range of reach and penetration into the deepest tissues. As physical therapy, it offers us a series of physiological effects that translate into a reduction significant pain relief and faster recovery.

- Ulcers: In the case of ulcers, laser treatment is beneficial for several reasons: it speeds up the healing process, reduces the formation of fibrous scar tissue, improves vascular activity and increases the metabolic capacity of tissues.
