Examples

The examples below are conditions that have either been treated at the clinic or conditions that are good candidates for treatment. 

The number of treatments are suggestions meant to provide a range for consideration. Each client responds differently to treatment and may require more or less treatments. 

Plantar Fasciitis
5 (30) Min Treatments

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. It is often caused by over use and is usually experienced by runners or in women who wear high heels.  Typically, the options for treatment include staying off your foot and even then it would require weeks and even months to heal. Laser therapy heals the tissue faster, reducing inflammation and bringing relief.  

Mortons Neuroma
5-10 (30min) Treatments

Morton's neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. Morton's neuroma may feel as if you are standing on a pebble in your shoe or on a fold in your sock. Laser therapy is an effective treatment because it speeds healing of the nerve and decreases inflammation.

5-8 (30min) Treatments
Tendinitis (Tennis Elbow)
5-8 (30min) Treatments

Tennis elbow is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overworked, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.  The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist. Laser therapy treats the inflammation, rebuilds tissue and speeds the healing process so clients can return to the activity they love.

Wounds
7-12 (30min) Treatments

Wounds occur in countless ways and vary broadly in severity. A wound generically refers to a tissue injury caused by physical means. In everyday parlance, wounds typically refer to skin injuries. Examples include incisions (clean cut,such as from surgery or scissors), lacerations (tissue tearing) and abrasions (scraped skin such as road rash). Laser therapy is well suited to treat wounds because it accelerates the healing process. If you have had recent surgery or have experienced road rash and would like to speed up the healing process, laser therapy would be the treatment for you. 

Diabetic Ulcer
9-15 (30min) Treatments (Will vary depending on severity)
Herniated  (Bulging) Disks
7-10 (60 min) Treatments

A diabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that occurs due to a combination of factors, such as lack of feeling in the foot, poor circulation, foot deformities, irritation (such as friction or pressure), and trauma, as well as duration of diabetes. Patients who have diabetes for many years can develop neuropathy, a reduced or complete lack of ability to feel pain in the feet due to nerve damage caused by elevated blood glucose levels over time. Laser therapy would be a good treatment option for ulcers because of its proven ability to decrease inflammation and accelerate the healing process through the generation of new cells.

A herniated disk refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine. A spinal disc can be injured through degenerative disk disease or through extra pressure on the spine through an incident such as heavy lifting. Laser therapy works by decreasing inflammation so the disc can heal and rebuilds any tissue that has degenerated.
