    K-Laser Therapy for Ankle Sprains

    Dear Valued Customer,

    "Half of all ankle sprains occur during athletic activity" according to Waterman, Owens et al. in Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery Am, 2010 Oct 06.

    In addition, the article states "Ankle sprain is the most common injury in athletic populations, accounting for up to 30% of sports injuries."

    Pain, swelling, stiffness and even bruising occur depending on the grade of the ankle sprain.


    Traditional Treatments

    Typical protocols for Grades 1, 2 and 3 ankle sprains call for rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE). And recent updates of this conventional prescription include PRICE (Protect, RICE) and POLICE (Protect, Optimal Loading, ICE).


    There's no consistent evidence that either of these approaches is optimal for all sprains, but there is a consensus that reducing swelling and pain, and restoring function and motion as quickly as possible without further injury to the tissue is critical to effective recovery.

     

    Acute Injury - Time is of the Essence

    The better-known RICE and PRICE approaches both often requires the injured patient to stay off the ankle until the inflammation decreases. Meanwhile, the range of motion is compromised. The POLICE approach emphasizes the importance of early mobilization.

     

    Laser Treatment - The New Way Forward

    Applying a laser as quickly as possible will bring optimal results. Treating the ankle, twice a day for the first several days will:

    • reduce inflammation
    • decrease pain
    • improve range of motion
    • begin the healing of the ligaments

    Of course, ice and compression may be utilized concurrently, according to the severity and specific symptoms of the injury.


    K-Laser Therapy

    Class IV K-Lasers provide certain red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light proven to help the body manage pain and inflammation while speeding up tissue regeneration.

    If you’re looking for a solution without drugs and surgery, ask your foot specialist about K-Laser!

    It helps reduce: Inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain.

    Nail Fungus - Say Hello to Affordable Treatment

    Dear Valued Customer,

    Nail fungus can be difficult to live with and difficult to get rid of, but we're here to help. 

    What is nail fungus?

    Nail fungus is a contagious fungal infection that can affect the fingernails or toenails. The infection can turn the nail yellow or brown in colour, and it may become so thick that it is uncomfortable to wear shoes. Foul-smelling debris may get accumulated under the nail. The nail may crumble and eventually fall off. You can contract a nail fungus infection from almost anywhere, but warm and damp environments are the ideal grounds to catch one. Environments that many people visit, like public pools and gyms are also very high risk areas. 

    5 Tips to Avoid Nail Fungus

    Thankfully, there are steps you can take to protect yourself from the dreaded nail fungus infections: 1. Keep the feet and toenails clean and dry

    1. Don’t share socks, shoes or towels with others
    2. Wear at least sandals or flip flops when in public environments (such as shared showers)
    3. Only wear properly fitted footwear when exercising or actively moving
      5. Change your socks or shoes regularly to avoid sweat build up

    How likely are you to contract nail fungus?

    Even if you take all the necessary steps to protect yourself from foot fungus, you may still become infected. Certain people are predisposed to nail fungus, and have a higher chance of contracting it: Men vs. Women: Men contract nail fungus infections slightly more often than women.

    • Diabetics & Older People: Many older people and diabetics suffer from poor circulation. This lack of circulation can prevent the body from effectively fighting off infections.
    • Relatives of People with Nail Fungus: Fungus, although physically contagious, is in some cases hereditary.
    • Athletes: Athletes and people who give trauma to their toe by wear
      tight-fitting shoes or tight hosiery are at great risk of toe nail fungus.

     

    Treatment

    Non-invasive laser treatments are available to rid yourself of nail fungus. Oral drugs and prescription topicals may also aid in relieving your symptoms.
