Local Podiatrist and Acupuncturist Utilizes Lasers to Help Patients

Integrative Health Care is pleased to announce the arrival of the Nexus Laser—continuous wave-pulsed lasers delivering biostimulation therapy—in its Fountainville office. Dr. Lisa Rhodes, DPM, LAc, has found that lasers are used beneficially to address three major areas of patient problems, including pain/inflammation, unsightly toenails and wounds or infections.

The Nexus 30 is FDA approved for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can help with foot and ankle pain from trauma or post-surgical. It is also effective for injuries such as fractures, strains and sprains. Patients who need physical therapy treatment for tendonitis, neuroma, nerve pain, joint pain, DJD/RA achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis also benefit from laser therapy.

Toenail infections are seen in about one-third of all patients. The virtually painless laser procedure allows patients to avoid oral medications—which may interfere with medications for heart and liver and require regular blood tests to check liver function. Wounds and infections do not always respond well to typical treatment. The Nexus laser kills the bacteria that are stopping the healing and promotes the oxygenation of the cells to stimulate cell regeneration.

Integrative Health Care offers a variety of complementary, effective and noninvasive alternatives to traditional medicine—including nutritional testing, acupuncture and assistance with relief from allergies, autoimmune conditions, digestive dysfunction, ADD, ADHD, autism, hormonal imbalances and more.
