Laser Treatment

We offer laser treatment for Toenail Fungus, Plantar Fasciitis, Foot Pain, Tendonitis, Plantar warts, and more. This treatment is delivered in a series of sessions depending on the condition and pathology. Please ask us about our payment plans.

Laser therapy is used to decrease pain, swelling and inflammation, while accelerating the healing process.

It is an easy, quick and painless treatment allowing patients to relax while the treatment is being performed. The high power diode laser therapy provides a warm, soothing sensation.

When the light source is placed against the skin, photons penetrate several centimeters down and are absorbed by the mitochondria (the energy producing part of a cell). This energy results in the restoration of normal cell function.

The main goal of laser therapy is to stimulate the cell to perform its natural functions, but at an enhanced rate, so that patients can heal faster.

Some of the most common sources of foot pain include:

  • Plantar fasciitis – which often creates moderate to severe heel or arch pain
  • Tendonitis including
    • Achilles tendonitis
    • Posterior tibial tendonitis
    • Peroneal tendonitis
  • Ankle sprains
  • Neuroma (or a pinched nerve in the foot)
  • Arthritis and Inflammation
  • Bunions and Bursitis
  • Hallux limitus (or a stiff big toe joint)
  •  

Any one of these conditions can create chronic (long-term) pain or acute (short-term) pain.

Custom Orthotics or Medical Grade Inserts

Orthotics are a prescription medical device that fits inside your shoe. Wearing custom orthotics can be part of the treatment plan to help you relieve foot pain.

Orthotics are often recommended for:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Chronic heel pain
  • Ankle instability
  • Ankle pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoe
  • Neuromas
  • Bursitis
  • Diabetic foot complications, like ulcers

We take the impression of your feet in our office and send them to our lab. We then schedule a pick-up appointment in our office and our doctor helps fit your custom orthotics.

We also offer medical grade inserts that are prefabricated and are a cost-conscious solution to many of the conditions mentioned above.


Keryflex

Keryflex is a cosmetic solution to damaged or fungal nails. It is a medical grade resin that includes an antifungal property. It typically lasts 8 weeks or longer, it’s non-acrylic, free of harsh chemicals, flexible and does NOT trap humidity/moisture (which would make the fungus worse). Please visit our instagram or facebook page for more information on Keryflex.
