How Laser Therapy Can Help Your Foot Pain
There are many causes of heel and arch pain but one of the most common is plantar fasciitis which creates such intense foot pain that it can make running or walking extremely difficult. Thankfully, there is a non-invasive therapy that can help with foot pain caused by plantar fasciitis that is also effective on number of other problems. That therapy is laser pain treatment.
How it Works
Even though there’s a laser in every DVD player the word still has connotations that feel futuristic. However, this technology is real, available, and proven. It works by sending laser pulses through the skin into damaged cells deeper in to the foot. Once this light energy penetrates the affected cells it will stimulate cellular activity – helping tendons, ligaments, and muscles to repair themselves. In addition the laser will increase circulation which will draw nutrients and oxygen to the damaged area which will assist in reducing inflammation, stiffness, pain, and spasms.
In short, each laser treatment will create a cascade of benefits that will increase your healing and lower your pain. Response to the treatment is usually very quick requiring only one to three sessions to begin seeing real results in pain removal without the need for pills or injections. Many laser treatments have also found increased effectiveness when paired with radial sound-wave or other sound-based therapy.
What It Can Help
In addition to plantar fasciitis, laser pain therapy can assist with pain arising from issues such as: heel pain, arch pain, Achilles tendinitis, arthritis, metatarsalgia, bursitis, periostitis and more and has been used to successfully treat patients for over forty years.
