INDICATIONS FOR LASER THERAPY
The Remy is FDA-cleared to treat a wide range of patient conditions from pain/inflammation and onychomycosis… to surgical treatment of plantar and mosaic warts (without the use of anesthesia).
Class IV laser therapy is one of the most safe and effective ways to treat various conditions that cause foot and ankle pain! Laser therapy has a vast amount of benefits including:
Accelerated cellular reproduction and growth – which is key in repairing the cells of cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and muscle tissue.
Reduced scar tissue that typically develops from specific injuries. When patients have less scar tissue, the likelihood of chronic pain is also reduced.
Decreased inflammation and increased blood circulation
Class IV laser therapy is used for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing and decrease inflammation.
When the light source is placed against the skin, photons penetrate several centimeters down and are absorbed by the mitochondria (the energy producing part of a cell). This energy results in the restoration of normal cell function.
The main goal of laser therapy is to stimulate the cell to perform its natural functions, but at an enhanced rate.
Laser therapy is a quick and easy treatment allowing patients to relax during the procedure. In contrast to “cold lasers,” which provide no feeling or sensation, high power diode laser therapy provides a warm, soothing feeling.
Some of the most common source of foot pain include:
Tendonitis (Achilles and more)
Foot and Ankle Sprains
Arthritis and Gout
You no longer need to feel embarrassed to wear open-toe shoes and sandals – or just go barefoot – because of toenail fungus or discoloration. Modern Podiatry is the area’s leader in restoring nails back to health, providing a natural and luminous appearance.
Class IV laser therapy is one of the most safe and effective ways to treat toenail fungus (onychomycosis)!
Laser therapy penetrates the nail bed and kills the fungus living underneath the nail without pain and without any harmful side effects. When the colony of fungus under the nail is “attacked” by the laser, the elements that make it grow and thrive are destroyed. This allows your nail bed to begin growing new, healthy nail. Nails that won’t give you feelings of discomfort or embarrassment!

The Remy Laser can be used as part of a wart treatment plan in numerous ways. It can be used to treat the core of the wart as an adjunct to non-surgical treatments or to surgically excise the lesion. Plantar warts can be difficult to treat due to the thickness of the soles of your feet. While we offer a variety of different techniques to treat warts, including cryotherapy, blistering agents or topical medication(s); by choosing laser treatment you can avoid surgery and the resulting wound which could take a few weeks to fully heal.
The Remy Laser accelerates tissue repair and cell growth, improves vascular and metabolic activity, and reduces inflammation. It can be very effective for people with chronic pain caused by nerve damage, diabetes or other forms of neuropathy. Lowering pain after the laser treatment protocol allows patients a better quality of life and allow them to participate in many more of their daily activities.
This revolutionary treatment allows deeper penetration without heat, incisions, or negative side effects. Laser therapy helps patients by relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting wound healing and soft tissue repair.
