Ideal Foot & Ankle Group Offers Remy Class 4 Laser Treatments for Pain
At Ideal Foot & Ankle Group, we offer comprehensive podiatric care for our patients in Nassau County, Queens and the surrounding areas in the state of New York. We are proud to offer Remy Class IV laser therapies to treat pain, inflammation and toenail fungus issues. The Remy Class IV laser has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in these medical situations. Here are the basics of this advanced and innovative treatment option.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
The Remy Class IV laser is designed to apply targeted light to the affected areas of your foot or ankle. The laser delivers photons that can penetrate skin and tissues. When these photons are absorbed into the cells, they increase the rate of cell reproduction and growth. This can speed healing and reduce pain for our patients. Class IV lasers are the most powerful therapeutic lasers with power outputs of 500 milliwatts or more.
Conditions That Can Be Treated With Laser Therapy
The Remy laser can be used to relieve foot pain that is caused by the following conditions:
• Inflammation of the joints
• Achilles tendinitis and other tendon injuries or conditions
• Plantar fasciitis
• Some forms of neuropathy, including pinched nerves and diabetic neuropathy
• Pain that occurs during the recovery period after foot or ankle surgeries
The podiatrists at Ideal Foot & Ankle Group will examine your feet and ankles and will let you know if treatment with the Remy Class IV laser could be right for you.
Advanced Treatments for Toenail Fungus
The Remy Class IV laser can also be used to target toenail fungus, which is also referred to as onychomycosis. These embarrassing infections can cause your toenails to become yellow, discolored or brittle. At Ideal Foot & Ankle Group, we can treat this condition with targeted laser light from the Remy Class IV laser device. This can allow you to avoid the spread of this infection and the pain it can sometimes cause. Our podiatrists will discuss your treatment options with you and will provide you with the most advanced and practical solutions for managing pain and dealing with toenail fungus effectively. We are committed to helping you feel your best and to preserving your mobility now and for many years to come.
