MLS Laser Therapy

MLS Laser Therapy

MLS Laser Therapy stands for Multiwave Locked System Laser Therapy. This procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that targets pain points and reduces inflammation through the use of a laser light. The laser is used to penetrate the skin in an effort to reach those target areas that are causing the most discomfort. It then works towards healing wounds and repairing soft tissue.

This procedure is seen as a popular option among patients who would rather not go through surgery. MLS Laser Therapy has been found to be particularly useful in healing conditions such as neuroma, plantar fasciitis, diabetic ulcers, arthritis, and tendonitis. Those suffering from heel pain or dealing with a sports injury may find this type of treatment useful as well.

Custom Orthotics

Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics are specially-made devices designed to support and comfort your feet. They are crafted uniquely for you, by matching the contours of your feet to optimize how you move. Orthotics are only manufactured after a podiatrist has conducted a complete evaluation of your feet, so the orthotic can accommodate your unique foot structure and pathology.

Podiatrists use orthotics to treat foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendinitis, diabetic foot ulcers, and foot, ankle, and heel pain. Clinical research studies have shown that podiatrist-prescribed foot orthotics decrease foot pain and improve function.

Traditionally, plaster casting is used to make an impression of your foot for the orthotic molds. However, newer technology like 3D Digital Scanners provide impression accuracy to the micrometer without the mess of plaster cast and without long turnaround time. Prescription orthotics are made of top-notch materials that are customized to the patient’s needs and lifestyle so to optimize the longevity of the orthotics.

Orthotics typically cost more than shoe inserts purchased in a retail store, but the additional cost is usually well worth it. Unlike shoe inserts, orthotics are molded to fit each individual foot, so you can be sure that your orthotics fit and do what they're supposed to do. Many insurance plans can help pay for prescription orthotics.

Call our office to make an appointment for an orthotic evaluation.
