Plantar Fasciitis

Treatment. Without The Injections.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. Common in runners, people who are overweight, and those who wear bad supporting shoes, the pain can be quite severe.

There is a thick band of tissue, like a ligament or skin, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel to your toes. At some point, due to your walking mechanics, injury, or overuse, pain and inflammation occur.

Pain can be stabbing and happen with the first few steps you take in the morning. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.

Plantar fasciitis typically feels better as the day goes on, but can return when there are extended periods of standing after getting up from a seated position.

Causes. Treatment Options.

Under normal circumstances, the plantar fascia acts like a shock absorber and supports the arch of your foot. If tension occurs or becomes too high, it can create small tears in the fascia. Repetitive stretching and tearing cause it to become irritated and inflamed.

Since Connecticut Disc and Laser Therapy Centers partnered with therapeutic lasers from Erchonia Medical, and Stemwave Therapy, effectively treating conditions like plantar fasciitis without injections, medications, or surgery is now an option.

Combined with other modalities, laser therapy and Stemwave therapy has been demonstrated to biostimulate tissue growth and repair, decrease inflammation and swelling, which may help with heel pain reduction and expedite the overall healing time for those who have plantar fasciitis and similar conditions.
