Durango, CO Podiatrist Shares Tips for Treating Achilles Tendinitis or Plantar Fasciitis

mLs therapy for achilles tendinitis Two common conditions that cause foot pain, ankle pain, or heel pain are Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. If you suffer from either of these uncomfortable conditions, then our 5-star-rated Durango CO podiatrist has some news that may improve your ability to walk without pain. MLS Laser Therapy was approved by the FDA in 2009 to treat a variety of foot and ankle conditions, including Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. Surprisingly, even though this treatment is noninvasive, painless, and has zero side effects, many patients simply don’t know it exists as an option to treat not just their symptoms, but the actual underlying condition itself.

Our Durango CO Podiatrist Is Here to Explain MLS Laser Therapy, Today’s Effective Treatment for Achilles Tendinitis and Plantar Fasciitis

What Is MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy, sometimes called cold laser therapy, is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment that reduces inflammation, relieves pain, and promotes soft tissue and wound healing by using lasers.

During treatment, the laser apparatus is placed about 8 inches away from your foot or ankle, and the light penetrates through your skin into the injured tissue. Because the laser works on a microscopic level, you won’t feel any pain as it permeates your foot or ankle. Some patients have even reported being so comfortable that they fell asleep during the procedure.

MLS Laser Therapy has been clinically shown to have no negative side effects.

What Are the Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy?

  • Improved circulation
  • Increased oxygen in the injured area
  • Heightened immune response
  • Better cellular metabolism

These effects work together to reduce inflammation and pain, as well as promote tissue healing. The result is a pain management treatment that does more than treat symptoms; it seeks to lessen the severity of the condition itself.
