Inflammatory Conditions: Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis receive excellent benefit from laser treatment. Both of these conditions involve pain from inflammation and the laser used by Dr. Cotler focuses on this inflammation to reduce or eliminate the pain associated with these conditions.

Ankle Sprains Ankle sprains are extremely common. In order to heal, the body delivers oxygen and energy to the affected cells through the blood stream while removing lactic acid and waste product as a result of the injury. Laser therapy can assist with recovery by increasing the rate of blood flow and improving circulation to accelerate the body’s own healing process and help you heal more quickly. .
Fungal Nails: Fungal infection of the nails affects millions of Americans. This infection, known clinically as onychomycosis, affects both males and females of all ages. It varies in severity, and can cause pain and abnormal nail growth. Oral medication for toenail fungus carries a risk of liver failure and other negative side effects. Laser treatment, on the other hand, offers impressive results with no drugs, side effects, pain or down time.

The laser passes harmlessly through the toenail to vaporize the pathogens that cause toe nail fungus without damaging the nail or adjacent skin. As your toenail grows out, new nail growth should appear normal because fungus is no longer present after just 4 to 8 months and just 3-4 treatments.
