Kentlands Foot & Ankle Center is thrilled to be able to offer state-of-the-art laser-aided foot pain relief using the Remy Class IV Laser. This Class IV laser therapy is used for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing, and decrease inflammation. Laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment that uses focused light to treat a wide range of foot and ankle conditions such as plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, Achilles tendonitis, arthritis and more.
How Remy Laser Therapy Works
When the light source is placed against the skin, photons penetrate serval centimeters down and are absorbed by the mitochondria (the energy producing part of a cell). This energy results in the restoration of normal cell function. The main goal of the laser therapy is to stimulate the cell to perform its natural function.
