St. Louis Podiatrist Introduces New Laser Technology for Improved Care

Dr. Richard Wittock, podiatrist in St. Louis, is adding new laser technology to Ankle and Foot Institute for acute and chronic pain.

    FENTON, MO, November 22, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When pain is experienced, it can often interrupt a person's daily activities. In order to help patients find relief from their acute and chronic pain, Dr. Richard Wittock, St. Louis podiatrist, is proud to announce the recent addition of new laser technology at Ankle and Foot Institute. The MLS M6 musculoskeletal laser from cutting edge is available to relieve various foot pain.

The MLS M6 musculoskeletal laser utilizes specific light wavelengths to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Light energy enters damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity, which then reduces pain in the area and speeds the recovery of damaged cells. Dr. Wittock, podiatrist in St. Louis, can treat a patient's pain within minutes with this painless procedure.

"This laser technology is a non-surgical option that has the power to manage pain, reduce inflammation, increase mobility, and help to speed recovery. There is no discomfort experienced during treatment, and no known side effects, which helps to provide my patients with long lasting results," said Dr. Richard Wittock, St. Louis, MO podiatrist.

Whether patients are suffering from a sprain or plantar fasciitis in St. Louis, the MLS M6 laser works to provide patients with relief immediately. This procedure works by flooding the tissues with light photons of specific wavelengths to treat painful debilitating conditions by energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. By doing this, it produces a cascade of healing responses in a patient's body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating the pain. Treatment with the MLS M6 laser typically takes less than 15 minutes on average. However, therapeutic effect continues to soothe and heal the area long after the patient leaves Ankle and Foot Institute.

With this advanced technology, Dr. Wittock, podiatrist in St. Louis, MO, hopes to provide his patients with improved relief of their often-debilitating pain.
