How a Laser Can Help You Recover from Bunion Surgery
If bunion surgery is a consideration, it very likely means that other options just haven’t provided the relief you need. Depending on your specific needs, the severity of the bunion, and your medical history, one of many different types of surgical procedures will be recommended. In every case, however, there will always be one goal: having as fast and as comfortable a bunion surgery recovery as possible. Nobody like to be laid up recovering from a surgical procedure. It doesn’t matter how many Netflix shows you have on your backlog; having to sit and manage post-operative pain and swelling can become tedious to bear over time. When we perform surgery for a bunion (or any other surgical procedure, for that matter), our care does not stop once it’s over. Proper care provides for a patient before, during, and after the procedure! Once your bunion surgery is complete, we will provide you full guidelines for recovery. Following them well will aid you in being more comfortable and avoiding any complications as you heal. We also offer an advanced treatment that further encourages the body’s own natural healing properties: MLS Laser Therapy.
Yes, A Laser Can Make You More ComfortableMultiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy is a method of treating soft tissue injuries. Although it’s not typically thought of as such, surgery is a controlled form of injury—just one made with the purpose of overall better results. MLS Laser Therapy can be just as effective when it comes to recovering from a surgical procedure as it is in treating a naturally occurring injury. One of the primary benefits of MLS Laser Therapy is that it works by enhancing the body’s own healing process, all without the use of drugs or other external items other than light. During a treatment session, specific wavelengths of light energy are aimed at the site of the surgery. This encourages several beneficial effects:
- It enhances cell metabolism. In other words, cells at the site of the surgery will begin operating faster and more efficiently.
- It increases cell recovery and growth. Among the increased activities of activated cells will be conducting self-repair and growing new cells.
- It increases circulation to the area. Our blood supplies cells with oxygen and nutrients they need to conduct their repairs. It’s like providing a construction site more building materials and a free lunch buffet!
