What is K-Laser

heading strip

K-Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), delivers specific wavelengths of light into targeted tissues. These photons interact with cells, stimulating them to produce a cascade of beneficial effects. Here’s how K-Laser therapy works:

  • Increased Blood Flow: K-Laser therapy promotes vasodilation, which is the widening of blood vessels. This increased circulation delivers essential nutrients and oxygen to injured tissues, accelerating the healing process.
  • Reduced Inflammation: K-Laser therapy helps to decrease the production of inflammatory mediators in the body, leading to reduced swelling and pain.
  • Enhanced Tissue Repair: K-Laser therapy stimulates cellular activity, promoting the production of collagen, a key protein for tissue repair and regeneration.
  • Pain Relief: K-Laser therapy can directly affect pain signals transmitted by nerves, providing immediate and long-lasting pain relief.

Benefits of K-Laser

heading strip

K-Laser therapy offers a range of benefits for various podiatric conditions. Here are some of the most common applications:

  • Heel Pain: Whether it’s plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or general heel pain, K-Laser therapy can effectively reduce inflammation and promote tissue healing in the plantar fascia, leading to significant pain relief.
  • Achilles Tendinitis: Laser therapy can accelerate healing of the Achilles tendon, reducing pain and stiffness associated with inflammation.
  • Arthritis: Laser therapy can help manage chronic pain and inflammation associated with various forms of arthritis in the foot and ankle.
  • Neuropathy: Laser therapy may improve nerve function and alleviate pain caused by diabetic neuropathy or other nerve disorders affecting the foot.
  • Wound Healing: Laser therapy can promote faster healing of chronic wounds, such as diabetic ulcers, by stimulating cell proliferation and improving blood flow.
  • Sports Injuries: Laser therapy can significantly reduce recovery time for sports injuries such as sprains, strains, and muscle tears by accelerating tissue repair and reducing inflammation.

What To Expect
During K-Laser Therapy Treatment

heading strip

K-Laser therapy sessions are typically brief, lasting around 10-15 minutes. During the treatment, your podiatrist will apply the laser probe directly to the targeted area. You may feel a warm sensation, but the treatment is generally painless.

The number of treatment sessions needed will depend on the severity of your condition. Your podiatrist will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs.

At Modpod Podiatry, we are committed to providing our patients with the most advanced and effective treatments available. K-Laser therapy is a valuable tool in our arsenal, offering a safe and effective way to manage pain, promote healing, and improve your overall foot health.

Asked Questions

Not everyone needs to be wearing orthotics. However if bad and abnormal forces are beyond your bodies’ current capacity to tolerate them then an orthotic  may be of benefit. Tissue has a particular capacity to tolerate stress, a certain amount of stress is essential for positive adaptation however if placed beyond this level for an extended period of time or if done repeatedly some parts may begin to let you down.

If you are not sure about the need for an orthotic, give us a call and one of our Sydney orthotics experts can talk through this process with you.

No! Not if the orthotics are designed and used correctly. Current evidence has shown quite the opposite, that if you wear orthotics there is an increase in foot muscle activity.

Orthotics are not a life sentence!. The exact reason why you need an orthotic in the first place and the severity of your initial injury will dictate how long you will need to wear the orthotics for.

Wherever possible there will be a plan in place to remove the orthotic and allow your improved foot function to continue.

If you’re looking for the best Sydney orthotics on offer look no further than ModPod.

Orthotics can be worn with many types of shoes, but some shoes may be better suited to orthotics than others. It is important to choose shoes that provide enough space and support to accommodate the orthotics.

Many insurance plans will cover the cost of orthotics, but coverage varies by plan. It is important to check with your insurance provider to determine if orthotics are covered and what the out-of-pocket costs may be.

Orthotics may need to be replaced if they become worn, damaged, or no longer provide adequate support or alignment. It is important to have orthotics checked every 12 months by a podiatrist  to ensure they are still providing the intended benefits.

  1. Chronic pain: The persistent pain associated with Morton’s neuroma can make it difficult to walk, stand, or engage in physical activity, which can negatively impact your quality of life.

  2. Foot deformities: Over time, Morton’s neuroma can cause the affected toes to become permanently contracted or misaligned, which can lead to other foot deformities.

  3. Nerve damage: In some cases, Morton’s neuroma can cause permanent nerve damage, which can lead to numbness or tingling in the affected area.

  4. Reduced mobility: If your Morton’s neuroma symptoms are severe enough, you may have difficulty walking or standing for extended periods of time, which can limit your mobility and independence.

It is important to seek treatment for Morton’s neuroma to prevent these potential complications from occurring.
