Laser for Musculo-Skeletal (Neuromoas)

This is very exciting news!

A recent clinical trial in the US demonstrated a very high reduction of pain and size of neuromas (inflammatory, benign tumor of nerve found primarily between the heads of the third and fourth metatarsals) in a small group of patients. Their results showed a 90% relief of pain and 50% reduction in the size of tumor (the size of tumor was measured both pre and post-treatment by ultrasound) with between 3 to 7 treatments.

Why is this exciting? The possibility of replacing conventional treatments, primarily cortisone or alcohol injections and surgery with an external, non-truamatic, non-invasive modality is the material of Star Trek.

Since the release of the Neuroma Treatment by Laser, we have been treating neuromas with the laser achieving remarkable results. All patients treated stated a 50% reduction in pain and size of the neuroma with the first treatment alone. After three treatments, the majority of neuromas were no longer painful or palpable.

Buoyed by this success, we have been treating a number of other musculoskeletal disorders such as Plantar Fasciitis, Acute and Chronic Injuries of the Foot and Ankle, Post-Operative Pain and Swelling, Stress Fractures, Achilles Tendinitis, Posterior Tibial Tendinitis and Shin Splints. Needless to say, the results of these treatments were equally remarkable. In our opinion, the Cutera Genesis Plus will revolutionize the practice of Podiatry!
