Laser Technology is Here!
Laser Technology has arrived only at Northern Foot Care Center! Laser marks the dawn of a “new day” when it comes to treating foot and ankle pain. Dr. Daniel Reminga at Northern Foot Care Center is the first in the region of Northern Michigan, to offer Laser to his patients.
 


July is a month of celebration marking our countries independence. Laser is also something to celebrate. It marks independence from foot and ankle pain! So…let’s celebrate! Light a sparkler and say, “So long to foot and ankle pain”!

Let’s find out more about Laser Technology and what it can do for your foot and ankle pain.
 
 
 
 
Simple stated…Laser captures light to create therapeutic benefits. The FDA approved the use of Laser in the USA in 2002. So, in the realm of medical advances, Laser is cutting edge when it comes to non-invasive treatments for patients. Non-invasive
treatment means that the body is not invaded or cut open, there is no damage of biological tissue. Northern Foot Care Center is the only place a patient can find Laser in the region, including…the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Northern Michigan, and for that matter, north of Wisconsin and north of Detroit. So, you can see why we are excited to announce that Laser is here!
 
Dr. Daniel Reminga, at Northern Foot Care Center, a board certified foot and ankle specialist, tells us…”Laser has been tested and demonstrated scientifically in published studies for its clinical effectiveness. Controlled, documented studies prove the effectiveness of Laser. Laser interacts with body tissues at the cellular level; as a result, the metabolic activity, or movement of the cells, increases.”
Dr. Reminga continues, “Once the cells are moving, they are then able to deliver vital benefits to parts of the body that need healing most. This transport of cells is known as “cell energy”. As a result of this transport, an optimal healing environment is created with key benefits.”

What are some common Questions about Laser...
 
During more than 20 years of use by healthcare providers, all over the world, very few side effects have been reported.
 
Dr. Reminga states, “There is little to no sensation during the treatment. The only sensation I would describe is a warmth or slight tingling. Due to the original injury or pain, these areas may be sensitive before the pain is reduced. However, overall, there is no discomfort associated with the Laser treatments.”
 
  • Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)
  • Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Diabetic Foot Ulcers
  • Neuromas
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ligament Sprains
  • Burns
  • Sports Injuries
  • Fungal Nails
The typical Laser treatment is a very manageable 3-40 minutes. This depends on the size of the area being treated.
 
Dr. Reminga tells us, “Acute conditions (more severe), may need to be treated frequently in the beginning, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. Chronic problems (persistent) respond better when treatments are received 2-3 times a week. With improvement the treatments can be tapered to once a week or every other week.”
 
“This all depends on the nature of the condition. For some acute conditions, 1-6 treatments may be all that is necessary. Conditions such as severe arthritis may need periodic treatments to control pain levels.”
 
Dr. Reminga continues, “A patient may experience improvement after the very first treatment. This is usually related to pain reduction. Sometimes, it may take a few treatments. This doesn’t mean, however, that the condition isn’t improving. The treatments are cumulative and on average, results are often felt after 3-4 treatments.”
 
Yes! Laser is often used in conjunction with other treatments. Dr. Reminga says, “Even after I have performed surgery on a patient, Laser can be very helpful in the healing process.”
 
Dr. Reminga concludes by saying, “What’s so promising about Laser is that the results can be dramatic. Simply stated, Laser is drug-free, pain-free, and surgery-free.”
