Toronto Podiatrist Introduces New Technology for More Effective Foot and Ankle Treatments

Doctor of podiatric medicine Sheldon Nadal, podiatrist in Toronto, ON, offers improved patient care through new technology and procedures.

    TORONTO, ON, December 16, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sheldon Nadal, Toronto podiatrist, offers new technology at his office to treat a wider range of foot and ankle problems. Nadal is pleased to offer patients the YAG Laser for treatment of toenail fungus to reduce the need for oral anti-fungal medication. He also uses a Super Pulsed laser to treat painful problems without utilizing cortisone injections which can be painful and weaken the connective tissues or anti-inflammatory medication which can be hard on the stomach and heart and aggravate blood pressure problems.

"I am always searching for advanced technology to get the best possible results with common foot problems. Modern technology can result in less discomfort and recovery times so that patients do not lose out on valuable work time and can return to normal activities quicker," says Sheldon Nadal, podiatrist in Toronto, ON.

The YAG laser has been successfully used by Nadal for the treatment of toenail fungus in Toronto, also known as onychomycosis since August of 2010. To date, patients have been thrilled with the results of the YAG laser. Nadal has been seeing significant improvements in the treatment of Toronto toenail fungus without the risk of oral medications. There is no downtime with the YAG laser treatment for fungal nail treatment.

Additionally, Sheldon Nadal, Toronto, ON podiatrist, offers the treatment of foot and ankle pain with the new super pulsed infra-red laser for relief of pain and inflammation. Since April 2011, Nadal has been utilizing the super pulsed infra-red laser to treat pain and inflammation for Toronto heel pain sufferers as well as for plantar fasciitis, arch pain, Achilles tendonitis, arthritis, joint pain and other causes of foot and ankle pain.

In many cases, Sheldon Nadal will combine this laser with sound wave treatments known as pressure wave, radial wave or radial shockwave for improved results. In addition, many cases eliminate the need for anti-inflammatory pills and injections.
