Are you battling with foot and ankle pain?

It’s frustrating when foot and ankle pain restricts your activities. Living with limitations can make us feel hopeless and stop us from living our best life. This can have negative effects on our relationships, self-image, wellbeing and quality of life.

We believe that everyone should be able to follow their passions, reach their potential and improve their performance. To achieve this, we offer exceptional podiatry services that will relieve your pain and get you back on your feet.

With our help you can start living your best life.

 

We can treat your foot and ankle pain with laser therapy

 

Laser therapy, or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) as it’s known in the medical industry, is great for relieving pain. It’s an effective treatment for all ages as it’s safe and non-invasive. It is particularly effective at treating arthritic pain, tendinopathies, post operative pain, swelling and chronic pain. 

 

LLLT differs from other aggressive laser procedures that remove tissue or induce large amounts of heat. Like photosynthesis, light is absorbed to produce a chemical effect. In laser therapy, light is absorbed by affected tissues to promote healing and reduce pain.

 

We harness the power of light to give you pain relief. 

The Amazing Benefits

Boosts Healing

Light emitted from the laser machine increases the energy in the injured cells. This speeds up the healing process.

Improves Pain

Your nerves control your pain signals. Low Level Laser Therapy regulates the nerves to improve your pain levels.

Reduces Inflammation

Nitric Oxide is harmful to the body’s cells. By displacing Nitric Oxide, Low Level Laser Therapy reduces inflammation.

 

Laser Treatment Process

All new patients must first undergo an initial consultation to assess their foot and ankle complaint and determine a treatment plan.

If your podiatrist recommends laser therapy we will book in your laser sessions after the initial consultation.

A minimum of two laser sessions per week is required and will be reviewed after three weeks.

Week One: Initial Consultation

45 minute consultation

This appointment may include:

  • Diagnostic ultrasound 
  • Confirm diagnosis
  • Review and prescribe footwear
  • Basic exercise prescription
  • Set treatment goals
  • Implement a treatment plan

Week Two-Four: Laser Therapy Sessions

Two x 15-30 minute sessions

In these sessions we will:

  • Locate the painful area
  • Put on safety glasses
  • Apply laser to the affected area; and other sites to promote systemic effects
  • Check your progress

Week Five: Laser Therapy Review

30 minute consultation

In this appointment we will:

  • Evaluate your progress since starting laser treatment
  • Reassess the treatment plan
  • Determine the next course of action to take
  • Apply laser therapy if required

Can I claim this through private health?

Yes, you may be able to claim for laser therapy depending on your private health cover. We have a HICAPS machine on site.

Do I need to have two sessions a week?
To achieve the best treatment outcomes with laser therapy a minimum of two sessions a week is required. Your podiatrist will advise if you require more.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule a session?

We understand that things happen that may stop you from attending your scheduled session. If you need to cancel we require 24 hours’ notice. To avoid paying a cancellation fee, we require you to reschedule the new appointment within 24 hours either side of your original appointment.
