What is LLLT?

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) offers a quick, painless, non-invasive, side-effect free alternative to relieve the debilitating pain of plantar fasciitis and other painful foot conditions such as arthritis. When applied to injuries and lesions, low level laser light has been shown to stimulate healing and reduce pain by accelerating the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair and the reduction of inflammation. Laser therapy has been found to be particularly effective over other standard therapies in relieving pain and other symptoms associated with chronic problems and injuries as it impacts the complete system of targeted muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue, bone, nerve, and dermal tissues. Additionally, low level lasers have been shown through controlled clinical trials to be effective for pain reduction and reducing inflammation.

How does it work?
The low-laser therapy that most plantar fasciitis patients receive is an approved form of treatment. During the treatment, a light beam is placed on the injured area in an effort to affect cellular metabolism, protein synthesis, wound healing, and immune response. The hope is that all of this will fight the inflammation in the fascia, reduce heel pain, and increase recovery time. According to some doctors, there are people that may feel immediate relief from their pain.

Positive Results
In some cases, individuals reported positive results. They noted that this therapy effectively removed their pain in case of plantar fasciitis, arthritis, ganglions, neuromas, heel pain and metatarsalgia (pain in the forefoot).

Possible Side Effects
Lastly, the side effects due to laser treatments for plantar fasciitis appear to be minimal. Most people experience tenderness due to the treatment. Besides that, the other side effects were minor or non-existent.
