Diabetic patients have negative effects on their ability to wound heal, even a minor scar or mild burn can cause adverse changes in their lives. The diabetic wound is a term that refers to the wounds of a diabetic patient, which if not given proper attention develops into a harmful infection.
An infection can transmit to the tissue & bone near the wound or to the inaccessible areas of the body. If emergency care is not provided, a mild infection may lead to a fatal or life-threatening disease.

Diabetes Wound Healing Treatment
There are several diabetic foot ulcer treatment guidelines, such as utilizing appropriate therapeutic footwear and applying dressings to provide moisture to the wound. Over the counter treatment is also available, however laser therapy has shown to be a cost effective and efficient diabetic foot ulcer treatment.
Laser therapy has been widely researched and has been shown to achieve good results in literature. Recovery for diabetic foot ulcers was seen only after a few days following laser therapy. The foot ulcer showed to heal completely in a few of the patients, whereas other patients showed significant signs of healing. Reduction of the area of the ulcer was also obtained.
Laser therapy has been shown to increase cellular metabolism of the patient, which promotes the healing process of the targeted area. Laser therapy has also been shown to interact with the nerves of the targeted site in a way which reduces pain experienced. This interaction also releases endorphins which reduces the painful sensations at the site. These interactions have a combined effect that result in pain relief starting from minutes after the treatment to long-term pain relief.
