Best Foot Forward, a podiatry practice in St. Louis, MO, has recently obtained a Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine that they will be employing for plantar warts treatment. Patients with plantar warts will usually be glad to get rid of them because of the pain they can cause throughout the day as pressure is exerted on the soles of the feet as they walk, run, or do other daily activities. The Swift microwave therapy machine offers a way for people to finally be rid of the inconvenience and pain from plantar warts.
Best Foot Forward offers various services for various foot and ankle problems, such as: fall prevention for the elderly; foot and ankle surgery; gout; wart removal; treatment for bunions; hammer toes remedy; ankle sprain treatment; plantar fasciitis; corns and calluses; diabetic foot care; ingrown toenails; sports injuries; foot pain; poor circulation; foot and ankle fractures; heel pain; x-rays; orthotics; foot injuries; wound care for chronic wounds; foot problems; arthritis; athlete’s foot; warts; ankle pain; neuromas; plantar warts; ankle injuries; toenail removal; nail problems; foot infection; foot ulcers; ankle problems; foot tumors; fungal toenails; and walking problems.
For plantar warts, when patients visit the Best Foot Forward office, the podiatrist will examine the warts and formulate a treatment plan. The Swift machine is effective in getting rid of the human papillomavirus, which causes the wart, by stimulating the body’s immune response. It works through the application of a low dose of microwaves to the affected tissue causing its temperature to rise rapidly, which attracts the attention of the immune system. This hastens the process substantially because the immune system would usually take years to fight the warts, especially due to their location.
Using the Swift machine, the podiatrist applies microwaves to each plantar wart for 2 to 3 seconds. Overall, the treatment is not painful, but it might be a bit uncomfortable during the microwave emission. Fortunately, many patients have noted a substantial reduction in their plantar warts after only one treatment session.
It is important to note that the Swift microwave machine has been designed to be accurate because it is provided with an applicator that the podiatrist uses to precisely point the microwaves to the target area. It has also been designed not to penetrate the skin deeper than 6.5mm. Typically, the thermal energy from the machine will only penetrate up to a depth of 3.5 to 4mm with the podiatrist being able to set the proper depth. The Swift machine will also provide a cleaner wart treatment procedure because it will not produce any smoke or plumes, unlike laser and electrocautery treatments.
