“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 most common cause of pain on the bottom of the heel, plantar fasciitis the result of inflammation of the plantar fascia — the band of connective tissue running from your heel bone to the front of your foot.

The plantar fascia is designed to absorb the high stresses and strains we place on our feet. When too much pressure is placed on the area, however, it can damage or tear the tissue.

The body’s natural response to this type of injury is inflammation, which results in the heel pain and stiffness of plantar fasciitis. Inflammation also makes the fascia more prone to microtears, which can lead to debilitating pain.

The most common symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:

  • Pain on the bottom of the foot near the heel
  • Pain with the first few steps after getting out of bed in the morning, or after a long period of rest.
  • Greater pain after exercise or activity

A recent study showed that there are approximately 2 million people being treated for plantar fasciitis every year in the United States.

Laser Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis

Luckily, the FX 635 laser is here to provide 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.

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.

These treatments require no preparation and typically take 10-12 minutes. After only a few weeks, your pain is gone or substantially reduced.

The FX 635 offers three lasers that work together to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. You just lie back, relax and let the laser do the rest!
