What is plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that manifests in the heels. Plantar fasciitis is a very common pain condition caused when too much pressure is applied to the foot. People with flat feet, high arches, tight calf muscles, and those who participate often in high-impact activities are all at a higher risk for developing this condition. Thankfully, patients with plantar fasciitis have a wide range of treatment options that can help them reduce or eliminate their pain.
How does MLS laser therapy treat foot pain?
Multiwave Lock System (MLS) laser therapy is an effective treatment method for reducing inflammation and related pain. The energy emitted by the MLS laser system can penetrate deep beneath the surface of the skin to repair soft tissue. MLS lasers are especially helpful for patients seeking to address chronic pain conditions because they can penetrate more deeply than other types of lasers and are able to spread over a wider area at once. MLS laser therapy has been proven effective for treating Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and other foot ailments that can result in chronic discomfort.
What is Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)?
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is also sometimes referred to as shockwave therapy. This non-invasive treatment method is an exceptional choice for patients seeking to improve their pain symptoms without downtime, anesthesia, or infection risk. EPAT harnesses the power of targeted pressure waves that can stimulate injured tissue to relieve pain, improve circulation, and accelerate healing. Shockwave therapy takes approximately 10 minutes per session and can provide patients with effective pain relief that lasts after 3-5 treatments. EPAT can address heel pain that is the result of injury or overuse and help you walk, stand, and run more comfortably.
How can orthotic inserts help my heel pain?

Orthotic inserts can help provide support for some conditions that can lead to heel pain.
