Dr. Steven Gordon, Dr. Shaun Hafner, Dr. Lisa Beckinella and Dr. Nancy Han of Reston, Manassas, and Leesburg Foot and Ankle Centers announce that they are now offering the Aspen Laser at their offices. The Aspen Laser is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment for pain relief and delivers light energy right to the body’s cells, treating pain and inflammation at the source.
Laser therapy works by penetrating the skin and underlying tissue, the photons of the laser light are absorbed by the cells and converted into energy. This energy is the key to helping the cells become normal and healthy.
The Aspen Laser has advantages over other treatments, such as the fact that it treats the cause of pain and injury, instead of treating the symptoms and masking the pain only temporarily. Laser therapy treatment helps to decrease inflammation, muscle tightness and soreness, pain, and increase the range of motion and faster recovery. There is no pain associated with treatment and most patients actually notice a warm, and often soothing feeling. Another advantage is that the moment a person leaves the office, they may resume normal daily activity, as long as they don’t overexert for a few days.
Laser therapy is also a quick treatment, usually taking between 5-10 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.
