Using lasers to treat foot and ankle disorders and diseases might sound like something you might see on an old episode of Star Trek, but laser therapy is actually already being used here and now to treat a wide range of issues. At Pennsylvania Foot and Ankle Associates, we use advanced laser therapy to treat patients suffering from:
- Plantar Fasciitis/Fasciosis
- Unsightly Nails

Laser therapy is also proven highly effective for wart removal and for improving wound and tissue healing and reducing post-surgical pain.
The Benefits of Laser Therapy
More so than any other treatment modality, laser therapy is proven to drastically accelerate tissue repair and growth. This treatment process encourages rapid wound healing while simultaneously reducing inflammation, pain, and scar tissue development. In addition, because the laser produces singlet oxygen, it is also highly beneficial in the destruction of fungus. Laser therapy is also non-addictive and most patients experience few to no side effects, making it one of the most comfortable yet effective treatment modalities currently available.
Our offices is equipped with the Nexus 30, a high-powered Class IV surgical and phototherapy laser that combines tissue ablation and biostimulation for superior treatment results.
