Everywhere you go, people are on their feet. And each year, 2 million of them will walk into a doctor’s office to get treated for heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis.
If you have this painful condition, you know how frustrating and inconvenient it can be. It’s time you gave your feet the care they need and rid yourself of the excruciating pain you feel daily.
Our team of expert doctors and surgeons at US Neuropathy Centers specializes in treating your worst pains with the best technologies and most advanced methods. We are proud to offer Remy laser therapy as a part of our comprehensive list of treatment options for plantar fasciitis.
Your foot is a complicated part of your body. It contains a variety of bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and other tissues to help you get around. One of the many components of your foot is the fascia, a thick band of tissue that connects your heel to your toes.
If you have plantar fasciitis, the fascia has become irritated and inflamed. Plantar fasciitis pain is typically located in the heel and is worse when you take your first few steps in the morning or after sitting for a long period of time.
You might notice the pain subside with activity or worsen after spending hours on your feet.
Some people are more at risk for developing this condition than others. For example, if you prefer high-heeled shoes over supportive athletic shoes, you have a greater chance of damaging your fascia. Other risk factors include:
Diagnosing plantar fasciitis is a simple process. We begin by discussing your medical history with you and any symptoms you’re feeling. We then conduct a series of physical and imaging tests to identify what exactly is causing your heel pain.
From there, we create a treatment plan that works for you. We’re dedicated to providing you with the best treatments available, and that’s why we recommend Remy Laser therapy.
Remy laser therapy is a revolutionary treatment for painful conditions like plantar fasciitis. It combines both high and low power wavelengths to trigger your body’s natural healing response. The concentrated heat and power from the wavelengths penetrate into the deep layers of your tissue and muscles to reduce inflammation and pain without damaging your surrounding skin and tissues.
Remy laser therapy offers a wide array of benefits from anti-inflammatory effects and pain relief to improved circulation and increased cell growth. You’ll also notice improved nerve function and a reduction of fibrous tissue formation.
This natural, safe, and noninvasive procedure can make your pain vanish and potentially keep you off the surgical table.
Although the technology behind Remy laser therapy is far from simple, the actual procedure is. When you arrive for your appointment, you recline comfortably on a table. We then direct the lasers exactly where your pain is located. In just a few minutes, you’re back on your feet.
You’ll likely feel a warming sensation during treatment, but no significant pain. There are no side effects, so you can return to your normal routine immediately following treatment. It’s possible you’ll feel relief from your symptoms after your first treatment, but we usually recommend 7-10 treatments and subsequent follow-up appointments to solidify your results.
There’s no reason to spend another day suffering from heel pain and the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. Let our team blast your pain away safely and naturally with Remy laser therapy.
