Plantar fasciitis is a fairly common foot condition. It comes with pain and discomfort in the heel and bottom of the foot. It happens when there is inflammation and irritation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes.

What Is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is also referred to as cold laser therapy. You may also hear it referred to as photobiomodulation, but that isn’t as common. LLLT is used to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation. LLLT treatment may use one of two lasers to achieve results. LLLT emits specific wavelengths to penetrate the tissue and promote cellular activity. This also increases blood flow to reduce inflammation and pain.
Can a Chiropractor Provide LLLT For Plantar Fasciitis?
Studies have found that patients receiving a combination of LLLT and chiropractic adjustments experienced a significant reduction in pain. They also found improved function when compared to those receiving chiropractic care alone. Chiropractors use low-level lasers that directly target affected tissues. Therefore, they can precisely deliver therapeutic light energy to areas with inflammation and pain. LLLT is a localized approach that allows chiropractors to have focused treatment on the area where there is pain and inflammation. This allows them to reduce inflammation and pain faster and more effectively.
While LLLT can drastically improve plantar fasciitis, each person is different and responds differently. Therefore, LLLT is best when combined with a holistic treatment plan. This plan may include stretching, shoe inserts, and changes to your lifestyle.
