Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is also called heel spur syndrome. Advanced Podiatry is one of the few clinics in Australia to use high level laser therapy (HLLT) for deep tissue and joint pain. Laser genesis heals through stimulation of cellular metabolism, increasing circulation within damaged tissue for fast and effective relief. It can used on its own but mostly in conjunction with other treatment modalities such as foot orthotics, taping, stretching and strengthening exercises.
"Heel pain has been a painful nuisance for many years. Foot orthotics and manipulation have helped but it was only after only after laser treatment from Advanced Podiatry have the symptoms completely gone."
Laser light floods the damaged tissue and promotes increased circulation and stimulation to heal on a cellular level.
High Level Laser Therapy has been used as an essential pain management tool by therapists in the USA to treat the NFL, NBA, FIFA and Olympic teams.
Most joint and soft tissue inflammation including such things as heel pain, neuroma, achilles tendonitis and shin splints.
The special wave length of the laser can block pain pathways and often provides immediate relief, so treatment results can be experienced from the first session. When we combine laser with other mechanical treatments that rest the injured body part, the body is given the best opportunity to heal.
Gentle heat penetrates the damaged area and the treatment is pleasant and painfree.
