1. SYMPTOMS, CAUSES AND RESULTS
Unfortunately, leg ulcer is very common in our country. Its basic cause is usually cardiovascular disease or diabetes. In such cases, a small wound which does not heal properly turns to a growing, infected, bleeding and exuding wound. It is very hard to treat, and it can lead to the amputation of the toes or even the foot or the whole leg.
2. CONVENTIONAL THERAPY
Treatment of Leg Ulcer
It is essential to keep the wound disinfected and freshly dressed with special bandages on a daily basis.
Polarized light lamps, magnet therapy or HBO (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) can be effective.
It is necessary to treat the basic cause as well (blood sugar level, inadequate blood circulation in the lower limbs).
In this case, the appropriate diet is of utmost importance.
3. HOW CAN SAFE LASER HELP?
Laser therapy performed with Safe Laser, developed as a result of a 40-year-long medical laser research, has pain relieving, anti-inflammatory and biostimulating effects on the irradiated area.
Treatment of Leg Ulcer – with Safe Laser
A 3-4-minute laser irradiation is recommended every day on the affected area and on the intact surrounding areas, too. If the device cannot be placed directly on the wound, it should be held above it, and extend the time of the treatment to 5 minutes because of light scattering.
