Common plantar fasciitis treatment can include: resting, ibuprophen, specific stretching, orthotics, and more. Many people report that these treatments only temporarily helped their pain or did not fully resolve the discomfort and loss of mobility.
In addition to the previously mentioned treatments, Cold Laser Therapy is an effective plantar fasciitis treatment that targets the source of the pain. Unlike other treatment options, it does not just mask the pain, but resolves it for the long term. It is completely safe and there are no risks of negative side effects.
Transfers light energy to the affected cells of muscle, regenerating and strengthening damaged muscle tissue to prevent future injury.

Removes Internal Scar Tissue:
Inhibits and removes Internal Scar Tissue that naturally forms from injury or repetitive strain, causing discomfort and a delay in healing.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis is defined by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes. This is the most common cause of heel and foot pain. This tissue supports the arch of your foot. Overloading this thick connective tissue with repetitive stress will irritate and weaken the tissue, causing inflammation and pain. You may experience sharp or dull pain in the heel, as well as a ache or burn along the sole of the foot.
The condition is common in both active and non-active individuals. It can be caused by: overtraining, wearing improper shoes, standing for long periods of time, tight calf muscles, restricted or altered movement in the foot or ankle, flat feet or high arches, or excessive weight on the feet.
- Pain in the heel or arch of the foot, usually worse in the morning when you step out of bed or after a period of inactivity
- Pain may be aggravated by standing, walking, or running
- Frequent foot cramps
- Tired and/or achy feet
- This condition may effect one or both feet
