Plantar Fasciitis Got You Down?
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Your foot has thick, fibrous bands of tissue (”fascia”) reaching from your heel to your toes. These tissues support the muscles and arch of the foot. When the tissues are overly stretched, tiny tears can occur in their surface, which then can cause pain and inflammation. Doctors once thought this type of pain was caused by bony growths called heel spurs. Now they believe that heel spurs are the result — not the cause — of pain from plantar fasciitis.
What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?
A number of things can contribute to plantar fasciitis. Poor footwear and bad gait posture is common. While men can get plantar fasciitis, but it is more common in women. You are also more likely to suffer from this condition as you age or if you are overweight or on your feet for several hours a day.
Now you can relieve the pain and inflammation of the heel associated with plantar fasciitis.
What Is The Treatment For This?
Our office now has a two-step approach to get rid of the painful Plantar Fasciitis and other foot pain related conditions.
We are one of the few offices in the valley to have the Erchonia FX 635 laser. This laser is FDA approved for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis. It is proven to promote cellular function through painless bio-stimulation. The FX 635 laser provides patients experiencing chronic heel pain with a non-invasive, effective and successful solution to quickly improve their walking comfort and quality of life without surgery. The healing powers of this low level laser technology can reduce inflammation and eliminate pain in the plantar fascia, and often return people to an active life style after treatment.
I recently attended a rehabilitation course in Denver and will show you simple exercises that take minutes a day that you can do at home to promote the effects of the laser therapy and keep your feet healthy and strong.

Toe weakness is an overlooked cause of a wide range of injuries, including plantar fasciitis, metatarsal stress fractures, and Achilles tendinitis. Causes of toe weakness include advanced age, compensation for a painful injury, neurological injury, and poor footwear.
