Q How does laser therapy help my heel pain?
Heel pain can develop due to strain on your foot or an injury such as plantar fasciitis. With laser treatment, a light beam is targeted directly on the affected tissue. The laser helps to reduce pain and inflammation, accelerates tissue repair, reduces scar tissue, closes wounds and improves nerve function. There is no pain or discomfort during or after the procedure. It may take three to four treatments before a decrease of symptoms are fully felt, however most patients feel a difference after the first or second treatment. Six treatments are needed.
Any type of foot pain or discomfort can be frustrating and limiting when it comes to carrying out daily activities. At Harvey R.
