Arizona Foot Doctors is now offering Laser Therapy to Treat Foot and Ankle Pain

Treat Your Foot and Ankle Pain with Laser Therapy 

Now offered by Arizona Foot Doctors in Scottsdale, Arizona

Many patients leave their doctor believing that there are no conservative or effective ways to treat acute or chronic foot and ankle pain. Now, with the new laser treatment offered by podiatrist Dr. Burns, patients can find relief while avoiding dangerous prescription drugs, painful injections, and expensive surgeries.

The K-Laser is a safe, painless, and effective treatment for active individuals. It helps reduce pain and inflammation and enhances tissue healing—both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, and even bones. It increases oxygenation of tissues and allows injured or damaged cells to absorb photons of light, which essentially speeds up the healing process.

Foot Specialist Scottsdale“I have had nothing but positive feedback on this treatment”, states Dr. Burns; “most of my patients are feeling the laser going to work within 24 hours of their first session. Laser therapy is not new science- what we do know now is that it works very well and is quite effective in treating most foot and ankle aches and pains…my patients are happier than ever. Nobody should have to resort to uncomfortable injections or unnecessary, overpriced insurance surgeries that pose a greater risk than benefit. This is a non-invasive approach to pain relief that is proven effective for most conditions. It heals without causing pain or distress to your body- with zero downtime, to boot. Why hurt to heal?”

II arrived with a very painful bunion. Dr. Burns diagnosed an inflamed bursa and a cyst. He aspirated the cyst and gave me a shot of cortisone for the inflamation. My pain is gone and I am feeling much better. Thanks, Dr. Burns!

National Foot Health Awareness Month

National Foot Health Awareness Month

April Is National Foot Health Awareness Month

Did you know that April has been set aside as a National Foot Health Awareness Month? If you’re wondering why foot health merits an entire month set aside for it, all you need to do is consider the fact that your feet support you each and every day of your life. Whether you are climbing in or out of bed, walking to the car on your way to work or school, or taking your morning jog, your feet are experiencing pressure at the very least and pain at the worst.

Problems Your Feet Might Experience

Even if you are careful about the type of shoes that you wear, your feet can undergo damage at the smallest incident. Many of the issues affecting the feet are minor, but for some individuals, they can become quite serious. Opportunistic infections like nail fungus can develop at any time, but particularly when the conditions are right for it. Nail fungus often begins to grow if your feet sweat a lot, particularly during the colder months when you wear socks to bed or heavy woolen socks all day long. Of course, certain types of medical conditions, such as diabetes, can also encourage nail fungus to grow.

Ingrown toenails are often the result of trimming your nails improperly, but they can just as easily develop if you wear your shoes too tight or drop something heavy onto your toes. If you don’t have an ingrown toenail taken care of by a physician, it might develop an infection. This would result in a longer healing time and possibly a lot of discomfort.

Plantars warts are uncomfortable and usually continue to grow until you have them removed. Since plantars warts are contagious, it is easy to pick them up at the gym or public swimming pool. Try to avoid walking barefooted in public areas to help prevent warts and do not ignore changes in your skin.

Hammertoes are often the result of wearing shoes that are too tight or narrow, particularly if the toe is somewhat longer than the rest of your toes. Hammertoes are easiest to deal with in their early stages, so getting to a podiatrist for treatment as soon as you notice that you have this condition is a good idea. If the problem is ignored too long a surgical correction is the most effective treatment.

Bunions are deformities that occur at the base of your big toe. They usually take a number of years to fully develop. While this isn’t necessarily a genetic issue, people with certain types of foot structure might be more prone to developing bunions, which are actually changes occurring in the bony part of the foot near the big toe.

Caring for Your Feet

It’s important to care for your feet all year long in order to prevent minor conditions from becoming larger ones. Take the opportunity to visit a podiatrist during National Foot Health Awareness Month and get your feet in shape for the summer! You can schedule an appointment online, or by calling our Scottsdale, AZ podiatry office.
