If you are suffering from heel or foot pain, Dr. Goldbaum can help.
The most common cause of heel and/or foot pain is plantar fasciitis, which is caused by the inflammation or tearing of the plantar fascia, a band of fibrous connective tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot from the heel bone across the arch to the toes. This condition is most often accompanied by pain that radiates from the heel to other parts of the foot.
If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis or some other form of chronic heel pain, seek medical attention from your primary care doctor or orthopedic foot and ankle specialist in order to determine the severity of the issue and to develop an effective treatment plan.
When it comes to effective state-of-the-art treatment methods, Dr. Goldbaum is one of the only medical clinics in South Florida currently offering the Erchonia’s new FX 635 laser treatment for the relief of chronic heel and foot pain conditions such as plantar fasciitis.
The FX 635 laser — also known as a robotic cold laser — provides individuals experiencing chronic heel pain with a non-invasive, efficacious solution to quickly improve their walking comfort and quality of life without surgery. While other lasers may claim to treat this problem, only the FX 635 has been market cleared by the FDA to treat plantar fasciitis.
This FDA-approved laser works by producing a low-level output that has no thermal effect on the body’s tissue (you can’t even feel it!), which reacts with your cells to stimulate a physiological response that accelerates the healing process in the affected area.
