Treating Plantar Fasciitis With Laser Therapy
Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain that can undoubtedly dampen the thrill of exploring Florida. It's most prevalent in middle-aged people but can occur in anyone. It causes severe, stabbing pain in the heel after prolonged periods of rest.
While you may hope it resolves on its own, ignoring plantar fasciitis can make it difficult to walk and carry out daily tasks. In addition, a lack of treatment can result in chronic heel problems. Unfortunately, many therapy courses to manage the pain and get you back on your feet can be extensive and expensive.
Relief with Laser Therapy
If you suffer from this condition, deep tissue laser therapy is an excellent option to manage symptoms and prevent chronic complications. At Big Bend Chiropractic, Dr. Miller treats plantar fasciitis with non-invasive, drug-free lightforce laser therapy. This natural option helps relax the ligament that connects the toes to the heels, allowing oxygen to flow and healing to occur. Perhaps the best part is that you may notice your pain decrease after only a few treatments!
Knock Out Plantar Fasciitis with Combination Therapy
While laser therapy can be beneficial on its own, it can be even more effective when combined with other treatments. These can include adjustments to the heel, foot, ankle, and spine. Kinesiology Therapeutic (KT) tape to support the area and stimulate lymph drainage to reduce inflammation can also be applied.
