A Response to Laser Therapy

Almost daily, we see some dramatic results from the application of Laser Therapy.

This photograph depicts the foot of a 66-year old diabetic and indicates what can be achieved:

The right forefoot on presentation was cool to the touch, the toes were immobile, cyanotic and no peripheral arterial pulses were present.

The photographs of 9/10/2008 are indicative of his initial status.

Prior to his second treatment on 9/12/2008, the photographs were repeated and significant change had occurred. On the occasion of his second visit, the toes were mobile, the edema and cyanosis had largely disappeared and the patient was relatively pain-free. The foot was no longer in jeopardy.

This case clearly demonstrates the healing potential of Low Intensity Laser Therapy.
