If you suffer from diabetic neuropathy, then you already know how frustrating and even debilitating the symptoms can be. Our foot specialist in Santa Fe, NM, has great news for patients dealing with numbness, pain, tingling, or other symptoms in the feet or legs. Thanks to today’s amazing technological advancements in medicine, diabetic patients can now take advantage of a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment for diabetic neuropathy – MLS Laser Therapy.
MLS Laser Therapy, as the name suggests, uses a laser (focused beam of light) to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote the healing of wounds and soft tissue. MLS Laser Therapy was approved by the FDA in 2009 to treat a number of conditions, including diabetic neuropathy, says our Santa Fe foot specialist.
According to our Santa Fe, NM, foot specialist, the MLS Laser is placed about 8 inches away from the injured part of your body, and the light penetrates through your skin. The laser causes no pain – in fact, many patients don’t feel any sensation at all while the laser is working.
The laser light penetrates the tissues of your body, and the energy of the laser stimulates your injured cells into regenerating themselves. It’s that simple! There is no invasive surgery, and you won’t need anesthesia for this pain-free treatment. The treatment is so comfortable and relaxing that some patients even doze off in the middle of it.
MLS Laser Therapy has been clinically shown to have no negative side effects.
If you want to know more about MLS Laser Therapy, its process and its potential benefits for your diabetic neuropathy, the next step is to set up an appointment with our foot specialist in Santa, Fe, NM, who offers laser treatment.
