Plantar fasciitis, a common culprit behind heel pain, can bring your daily routine to a halt. That first step in the morning can feel like stepping on a bed of nails, and even everyday activities can become excruciating. But there’s good news! You don’t have to resign yourself to a life of discomfort. Here at Connecticut Disc and Laser Therapy Centers in Shelton, Dr. Dalfino offers effective, non-invasive treatments that can help you heal plantar fasciitis and get back to enjoying life pain-free.

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis: The Root of the Pain

The plantar fascia is a band of tough tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, connecting your heel bone to your toes. It acts like a shock absorber, supporting the arch of your foot and distributing your weight as you walk, run, or jump. However, repetitive stress, overuse, or certain foot mechanics can irritate and inflame this tissue, leading to the characteristic pain of plantar fasciitis.

Symptoms That Signal Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Sharp stabbing pain in the heel, especially upon taking the first steps in the morning or after getting up from sitting
  • Pain that worsens with activity and improves with rest
  • Aching or tightness in the arch of the foot
  • Difficulty flexing your foot

Risk Factors for Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Age: Plantar fasciitis is most common between the ages of 40 and 60.
  • Mechanics of your foot: Flat feet, high arches, or an abnormal gait can increase your risk.
  • Certain activities: Runners, dancers, and people who stand on their feet for extended periods are more prone to this condition.
  • Weight: Excess weight puts extra stress on the plantar fascia.
  • Sudden increase in activity: If you dramatically increase your exercise intensity, it can strain the plantar fascia.

Effective, Non-Invasive Treatments for Long-Term Relief

At Connecticut Disc and Laser Therapy Centers, Dr. Dalfino is committed to helping you find lasting relief from plantar fasciitis pain. We offer advanced, non-invasive therapies that target the inflammation and promote healing without the risks associated with surgery or medications.

  • Shockwave Therapy with Storz Medical Technology: This innovative treatment utilizes high-energy sound waves to stimulate the healing process in the plantar fascia. The sound waves increase blood flow to the area, promoting tissue repair and reducing inflammation. Shockwave therapy is a proven treatment for plantar fasciitis, offering long-lasting results with minimal discomfort.
  • MLS Laser Therapy: MLS Laser therapy utilizes concentrated light energy to accelerate healing and reduce pain. It works by stimulating cellular activity, promoting tissue repair, and decreasing inflammation. MLS laser therapy is a painless treatment that can be used in conjunction with shockwave therapy to optimize your healing journey.
