Heel Pain Treatment at Delray Beach Podiatry

Your heel can hurt for any number of reasons.

The most common cause of heel pain is due to inflammation or tearing of the plantar fascia, which is 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 known as plantar fasciitis and can cause pain that radiates from the heel to other parts of the foot.

If you are suffering from chronic heel pain, it is imperative that you consult your primary care doctor or orthopedic foot and ankle specialist right away to determine the severity of the issue and to develop a treatment plan.

In most cases, a doctor will examine the heel, looking and feeling for signs of tenderness and swelling.

If your heel pain does not resolve using at-home treatments in two weeks, your next step should be to visit podiatrist as additional treatments may be needed such as anti-inflammatory medications, night splints, steroid injections, pre-fabricated or custom-made orthotics, castboots, shockwave therapy or surgery.

At Delray Beach Podiatry, Dr. Ian Goldbaum, a podiatrist with over 30 years of experiences, 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 pain conditions such as plantar fasciitis.

“Plantar fasciitis can be extremely painful and persistent,” said Dr. Goldbaum, who has offices in both Delray and Boynton Beach. “Erchonia’s FX 635 laser is ideal for chronic heel pain sufferers, because it offers effective, pain-free treatment — without side effects. In just three weeks with two treatments per week, patients can have significant and lasting relief from plantar fasciitis.”

The FX 635 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.

Erchonia received FDA clearance based on a double-blind, randomized, multi-site and placebo-controlled clinical trial. In order to participate in the study, patients had to have self-reported pain of greater than 50 on a visual analog scale (VAS) of 0 to 100 and be unresponsive to conservative measures.

After just two FX 635 treatments a week for three weeks, patients treated with the FX 635 Laser reported reduced pain on the VAS scale at 2 weeks, 6 months and 12 months post-treatment. On average, patients went from a 68 on the VAS scale down to 8 at the 12-month mark. Those patients who received a placebo laser did a not achieve a statistically-significant reduction in pain at any time during the clinical trial.

In short, this laser works!
