The heels and balls of your feet are continually subjected to the stress and pressure generated from walking, working, and exercising. Haglund’s deformity, which is a bony bump on the back of the heel, is one possible result of all that stress and pressure. MLS laser therapy is a pain-free, safe and effective way to treat the heel.
3 common causes of heel pain that respond very well to laser therapy include:
1. Haglund’s deformity—This bony growth is often experienced by those who wear high heeled shoes which is why it is called the pump bump. While there is a hereditary influence in the development of this deformity, the friction from footwear is thought to be the primary cause.
2. Achilles tendonitis—This condition affects the back of the heel where the large tendon that runs from your calf muscle connects. Overuse and stress can cause the tendon to stretch or tear often causing pain in the heel area.
3. Plantar fasciitis—This is actually first and foremost an arch problem and the complications are often felt in the back of the heel.
If you are experiencing pain in your heels try MLS laser therapy for fast and non-invasive relief.
