Laser Therapy: An Elegant Weapon
With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars enthusiasts are flocking to stores to purchase the new type of light saber that will be featured in the movie.
The light saber is the supreme weapon of a Jedi Knight.
In fact, Obi-Wan Kenobi said of the light saber, “it is an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.”
What makes the light saber so superior?
It’s technically a laser.
At Lexington Podiatry, we employ the use of laser therapy for 2 main conditions:
Laser therapy for these conditions is very effective, often painless, and generally carries less risks and interactions as medication.
As we earthlings now live in a technologically civilized age, lasers are being used more and more often in physician office settings, as well as in operating rooms. Did you know that lasers are even being used for the removal of certain types of brain and spinal cord tumors?
Since the first laser appeared in 1960, they have evolved and have been used for the treatment of diseases and injuries such as cancer and bulging back discs, as well as the removal of more cosmetic concerns like tattoos and varicose veins.
Laser therapy for medical use converts light to energy in order to help cells to return to their proper function. Restoring the cells can improve or completely resolve the symptoms being experienced on the part of the body being treated. Simply put, laser therapy enhances the body’s own healing process.
