Laser for Plantar Fasciitis

Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy, is a painless, non-invasive, side-effect free alternative treatment of a variety of conditions and injuries. One of these conditions includes plantar fasciitis.

Laser has been shown to stimulate healing and reduce pain by accelerating the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair and the reduction of inflammation.

Rapid Relief and Regeneration with Laser Therapy

Plantar Fasciitis is particularly difficult to treat as there are few proven treatment regimes. Our Laser Therapy device directly reduces inflammation and eases pain noticeably as early as the first treatment. In addition to the direct analgesic effects, the laser acts to stimulate fibroblasts for a faster regeneration of connective tissue structures in the tendon.

Laser therapy is particularly beneficial in the acute or most painful stage of plantar fasciitis as the treatment is painless and has no side effects. Calming down pain and inflammation allows for earlier adoption of other supportive treatment modalities such with prescribed stretching and strengthening exercises.

In summary, laser therapy may help with foot and heal pain such as with plantar fasciitis by:

  • Increasing circulation allowing for more oxygen and nutrient delivery to damaged tissue.
  • Reducing Inflammation which aids in alleviating pain and swelling.
  • Stimulation cellular activity to encourage tissue regeneration.
  • Pain relief by initiating the blocking of certain pain pathways and promoting the release of endorphins.

A typical laser therapy treatment involves gently sliding the laser device over the base of the foot and often associated muscles and tendons. Our laser therapy device is powerful and efficient and thus less time is needed for a treatment compared to other lasers. Treatment times, therefore, are often 10 minutes or less.
