Diabetic Neuropathy

Nerve damage that is caused by high blood sugar levels in diabetic individuals can cause severe pain, numbness, tingling, and burning (diabetic neuropathy). Laser therapy treatments help these individuals by increasing blood flow, stimulating tissue growth, reducing swelling, and reducing pain. 

Foot and Ankle Pain

Ongoing pain caused by heel spurs, bone spurs, arthritis, hammertoes, and other common foot problems can be debilitating. Laser foot and ankle treatment helps reduce pain and swelling in affected areas, stimulate tissue regrowth, and increase blood flow. Explore common foot problems ›

Plantar Fasciitis 

Repeated physical activity and strain on an inflamed plantar fascia can cause severe irritation, heel pain, stiffness, and inflammation. Laser therapy greatly reduces pain and swelling and often fast tracks a patient’s recovery. Learn about Plantar Fasciitis ›  

Tendinitis 

Repetitive actions on an inflamed tendon can cause extreme pain and tenderness, stiffness, and swelling in the affected area (tendonitis). The K-Laser reduces inflammation in the affected area and offers lasting pain relief.

Laser Foot and Ankle Therapy FAQ’s

How many laser treatment sessions will I need to relieve the pain?

Many of our patients with acute to moderate foot and ankle conditions respond to laser therapy treatment in as little as 1 to 3 sessions. Patients with chronic pain and severe diagnoses tend to best respond to therapy after 8 – 12 sessions. Keep in mind, every patient is unique and requires their assessment to determine the expected amount of sessions needed.

What does laser therapy cost? Will my insurance cover the service?

Laser therapy treatments start as low as $81.50/session. Although the results and benefits are highly documented, insurance companies do not consider laser therapy medically necessary and won’t cover the service. To help offset your out-of-pocket cost, we accept financing through Care Credit. Learn more through our patient center or apply online.

What does laser therapy feel like? Is it painful?

Laser therapy is not painful. Many of our patients describe it as a warm, tingling sensation, limited to the area that’s being treated. With the K-Laser’s powerful laser, you can expect an increase in blood flow and warmth throughout each session.

What can I expect after each treatment?

As mentioned before, most clients feel immediate relief after their first session. Some even report a more relaxed feeling throughout their daily activities. Foot and ankle pain reduction is our main goal, but not the only benefit of laser therapy. The K-Laser is known for its pain treatment and preventative effects for tissues. Throughout this process, the areas being treated will repair the damaged tissues, grow new tissues, and protect all tissues being treated. The benefits of laser therapy is cumulative; meaning, overtime you will feel all of the K-Laser’s benefits.

How should I dress when I start laser therapy treatments?

Since laser therapy requires direct contact with the skin, we recommend wearing clothing that allows easy access (like skirts, sweatpants, and sandals). If you’re more comfortable wearing pants or covered shoes, make sure they are easily removable for treatment.

Do I have to wear safety goggles/glasses during the laser treatment sessions?

Yes. We require patients to wear safety glasses during treatment to protect their eyes from our high-powered laser beams. Our safety glasses protect and block certain wavelengths of light that would damage your retina.

Will I feel any results after the first K-Laser therapy session?

Many patients have reported immediate pain relief after their first laser therapy session. Some patients have reported feeling may more pain and soreness after the first session, but have confirmed that it is better by the next day.

If I'm experiencing pain after my laser therapy appointment, what should I do?

If you’re experiencing any pain, discomfort, or soreness caused by vasodilation, we suggested icing the area in intervals or as directed by Dr. Burns. Another way to soothe the discomfort would be using a pain relief gel.

*Vasodilation is when your blood vessels increase in diameter to reduce inflammation (one of the K-Laser’s benefits). Some patients may feel sore once vasodilation occurs. 

After laser therapy treatments, can I work out? What precautions should I take?

There are no physical limitations or precautions you need to take after each laser session. We do, however, encourage clients to rest after each treatment so they’re not overexerting themselves or causing more damage to the area in pain. If you’re planning to exercise after the laser therapy treatment, we suggest lowering the intensity of the workout and switching to a body area that’s not currently being treated. If you have specific questions, contact our office or talk to Dr. Burns directly.

What happens if I pre-purchase laser sessions but feel better before I can use them all?

We encourage clients to finish their purchased treatment sessions to take advantage of laser therapy’s many benefits. Laser treatment is not only a pain reduction tool but a preventative treatment. Completing your purchased package will strengthen your tissues in the affected area, increase blood flow, and ensure longevity.
