Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.
Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. In the case of plantar fasciitis, the laser reduces the pain in the area of the heel that is inflamed and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 8 minutes. You may experience a sensation at the point of application, but it does not cause pain or discomfort.
Most people experience initial positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with an average course of treatment consisting of 7 to 10 sessions. Following the first treatment, swelling may be greatly reduced and pain may be relieved rapidly. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatment, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.
The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you begin treatments, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor at Heel Pain Center of Atlanta. Otherwise, the symptoms you had are likely to reoccur.
