Our feet carry us from here to there every day. However, you may not think much about them until they hurt. And when they do, you want relief. To get the right treatment, you need to first know the underlying cause and the location of where the pain may possibly be coming from. The foot is a complex structure that balances the weight of the body while providing support and mobility. The ankles serve as a foundation to move freely.
Pain in the foot and ankles can be achy, stiff, sharp, dull or a shooting type of pain. This discomfort may be a sign of a serious condition or something else may be going on in the body. Generally, foot and ankle pain are one of the reasons patients come into the office because they want to avoid injections and surgery. If you’re looking for a safe, natural, non-invasive, drug-free and surgery-free approach, at Gucciardo Specific Chiropractic and Natural Health Center we can help relieve your pain with a very powerful, effective, and fast healing approach called K-Laser Therapy.
Sometimes, long periods of standing, walking, or repetitive motions associated with sports, work or everyday life may lead to excessive stress to the structures in the foot and ankle. This may lead to painful conditions such as fractures, plantar fasciitis, and tendonitis. Overtime, footwear may also play a role in foot and ankle pain. For example, wearing shoes that fit too tightly or have high heels may cause bunions, misalignment of the toes and other foot related issues. Additionally, other conditions like diabetes, arthritis and bursitis can cause painful symptoms in the feet and ankle.
People experiencing foot or ankle pain may have swelling, stiffness, numbness, bruising or tenderness in and around their foot, ankle, heel, toes and joints. This may make walking, getting in and out of bed or going up and down the stairs very difficult.
So how can K-Laser Therapy help? The use of the red and near-infrared wavelength of light from the K-Laser during the treatments can help stimulate cell activity and promotes easier flow of nutrients through the cell membranes in the feet and ankles. It also increases the circulation in the damaged area, increasing the water and oxygen at the site to reduce inflammation and swelling, relieve any muscle spasm, stiffness and most importantly alleviate pain.
