If you are experiencing foot pain, you will want to come to our podiatry practice, Albany Podiatry. At our 12203 podiatry office, you can be treated with laser treatment for your heel pain, and other painful foot problems.
At our 12203 podiatry office you will be seen by one of our expert foot doctors, just one of whom is Dr. Mark Friedman. Heel pain in is a very common reason for patients to visit our office; it is usually caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is also referred to as heel spur syndrome. Heel pain can also be caused by other reasons such as a stress fracture, tendinitis, arthritis, nerve irritation, or sometimes even by a cyst. Our podiatrist will be able to accurately diagnose the cause of your heel pain so that it can be properly treated. When you have plantar fasciitis, you have an inflammation of the band of tissues that connect the heel to the toes. In this condition, the fascia becomes irritated and inflamed, causing heel pain. At our podiatry practice we offer treatment with the MLS robotic laser for heel pain. Our doctors and technicians are certified in Advanced MLS Laser Therapy, and we use customized treatment protocols which are unique to each patient. This shockwave treatment has been cleared by the FDA; over 90% of people experience relief from this treatment. MLS robotic laser therapy can be used to effectively treat plantar fasciitis as well as other conditions which include: bunions; peripheral neuropathy; ankle, heel, and joint pain; Achilles tendinitis; neuromas; arthritis; bone spurs; sports injuries; and other strains and injuries. Shockwave therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful foot conditions. The light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This treatment reduces local pain and makes recovery of the damaged cells to occur even quicker. When the cells recover, the healing process is complete. Treatment is completely painless and lasts about 10 minutes.
