Get Back in the Game Without Surgery
Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists provides advanced technology solutions like K-Laser™ in Sugar Land, Katy, and Houston, TX, that can find the cause of your foot pain and help you to heal fast. 90% of our patients tell us that they get relief from pain right from the first visit!
Who Can Benefit From K-Laser™ Therapy?
Professional trainers use the K-Laser™ to increase circulation and draw water, oxygen, and important nutrients to an injured foot or ankle. The process reduces inflammation and swelling, stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms. Often, K-Laser™ means that hurt athletes do not need medicine or surgery to reduce or end their pain. When Houston Astros players get bruises, tendinitis, strained muscles, and contusions, they have a K-Laser™ machine standing by in the training room to get fast pain relief. What’s even better, is that you can receive this same world-class treatment right in our podiatry offices!
What Is K-Laser™ Therapy?
K-Laser™ therapy’s secret is the way it uses red and near-infrared light waves to improve your healing time, reduce pain, increase circulation, and stop swelling. During therapy, the laser light works deep at your tissues’ cellular level – bringing oxygen-rich red blood cells to the area that hurts. Soon the cells increase their metabolic activity, rapidly transporting nutrients across cell membranes to where they are most needed. This produces the cellular energy (ATP) that cells need to form and stay healthy. Damaged cells resume working normally. You start feeling back on your game.
How Does the Process Work & Feel?
Our team can customize the K-Laser™ to your needs to get you quick, non-surgical relief in most cases. We will adjust the K-Laser™ settings based on the way you describe your pain, as well as the length of time you have had it. Next, the laser is directed at your hurt foot or ankle, where it provides you just the right amount of targeted light to begin healing. Our podiatrists can actually adjust the K-Laser™ to your very own skin color too. This is important as the melanin in your skin determines the way you absorb light.
Treatments last for 10 minutes or less, so you can get in and out quickly and back to your life! The number of treatments you will need depends on your foot complaint. Many of our patients get complete pain relief at the first visit. Others will need three to six visits or more. We recommend that you have K-Laser™ treatment on a regular basis to keep your cells healthy and pain-free.
Is K-Laser™ Safe?
K-Laser™ is completely safe with no known serious side effects. A few patients report minor pain or aggravation at the site of a past injury, but most patients say they feel nothing at all during treatment, except for a little warmth or tingling as the laser goes to work on the pain. Even if you have a metal implant, broken skin, or an acute injury, K-Laser™ will not hurt you. If you have recently had a cortisone shot, please let our podiatrist know. Steroids are sensitive to light, so you should wait for at least seven days before using the K-Laser™ to be sure you get optimal results.
Since the 1970s, European athletes have enjoyed the clinically proven benefits of laser therapy. Now, with Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists, you can, too!
