Laser Therapy Darwin

What is Laser Therapy?

Photobiomodulation Laser Therapy is a safe and effective non-invasive treatment that uses wavelengths, frequencies and energy to deliver dosages from superficial skin into deeper musculoskeletal tissues and induce cellular metabolism.


This directly increases blood flow and promotes oxygenation to the cells to accelerate cell tissue healing, nerve regeneration, reduction of inflammation, swelling and pain sensation.

At Northern Podiatrist Clinic, we use an industry leading Class 4 Therapeutic Laser which is able to penetrate the tissues deeper and is highly effective in treating many conditions especially when used in combination with other therapies.

Laser Therapy is pain-free and most patients feel a soothing warm sensation. 

How does Laser Treatment work?

heat therapy

Angiogensis and Neovascularisation

Increases blood flow and oxygenation to the damaged tissues

foot bones

Production of Collagen, Cartilage, Bone Matrix

Improves cartilage articular function, increases tissue elasticity and promotes bone healing

leg muscles

Muscular Repair

Activates myogenic cells to repair damaged muscle fibres and regenerate tissue

nerve pain

Nerve Regeneration

Nerve healing from growth factor proliferation and myelin development

swollen feet

Swelling and Inflammation

Activates lymphatic drainage to reduce tissue swelling and pain symptoms

torn muscles


Assists in repairing muscle fibres and remodeling collagen fibres

achilles tendinitis


Improve cell ATP production and enhance cell metabolism



Increases cell oxygenation of damaged tissues, accelerating healing



Development of new blood vessels to increase blood flow
