LLLT for Degenerative Foot Conditions

From Meditech International’s Winter 2015 Newsletter, on the subject of degenerative changes in the foot: “(LLLT) can increase angiogenesis, which is the formation of small collateral arteries, arterioles and capillaries resulting in increased arterial perfusion.  These physiological activities will increase the blood supply to the foot.  In turn, this has the potential to counter some of the secondary effects that occur in the ageing process and accelerate the regenerative process.  Laser Therapy can offer a myoprotective effect, preventing the apoptosis of myonuclei.  As such, prolonged course of Laser Therapy directly and positively impacts the majority of the problems of the ageing foot.”
