If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, a foot problem characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia (the tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes), you know the discomfort the condition can cause. The condition causes pain under the heel bone and foot arch, especially after prolonged walking or standing. When conventional treatments are ineffective at minimizing symptoms and healing the plantar fascia, low level laser therapy can be an excellent solution.
Low level laser delivers multiple pulsed and continuous waves of laser to the cellular aspect of the tissue. This turns over damaged cells allowing the body’s natural healing response, replacing the damaged plantar fascia tissue with new, healthy tissue. As a result, low level laser procedure can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of plantar fasciitis and improve the foot’s functioning.
