How MLS Laser Therapy Treats Your Plantar Fasciitis

How MLS Laser Therapy Treats Your Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis 一 notorious for the heel pain it causes 一 occurs when your plantar fascia becomes inflamed. Your plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes. This condition causes pain from the moment you wake up in the morning as well as during exercise. Left untreated, plantar fasciitis can make walking dreadful. 

Think you’re dealing with plantar fasciitis? If heel pain is limiting your ability to walk comfortably,  visit us at Precision Laser Joint and Spine Pain Center in Glen Burnie, Maryland, where we offer cutting-edge MLS ® laser therapy to treat plantar fasciitis. 

In this article, Dr. Dustin Hamoy explains how MLS laser therapy can help alleviate heel pain.

What is MLS laser therapy?

Multiwave locked system laser therapy 一 more often called MLS laser therapy 一  relies on an FDA-cleared device that reduces inflammation and alleviates musculoskeletal pain. Here at

Precision Laser Joint and Spine Pain Center, Dr. Hamoy uses the MLS laser therapy system from ASA Laser. This system is noninvasive and features dual infrared light wavelengths to penetrate deep into your skin and access the tissues, such as your plantar fascia. 

How MLS laser therapy treats plantar fasciitis 

MLS laser therapy works because the light energy stimulates cell regeneration in the tissues in your plantar fascia. Because new cells are regenerated, it leads to new tissue creation. MLS laser therapy also:

Not only does MLS laser therapy promote tissue regeneration and healing, but this therapy also reduces pain by encouraging your brain to release endorphins.  

Studies found that MLS laser therapy for plantar fasciitis was more effective in relieving pain when compared to the control group. Not only that, but those who received MLS therapy experienced benefits for at least three months post-treatment. 

Should you consider MLS therapy?

You can think of your plantar fascia as a bowstring that absorbs shock as you walk, but if the bowstring becomes too tense or overstressed, tiny tears can develop in this tissue. Flat feet, high arches, being overweight, and participating in certain sports (such as long-distance running and ballet) can increase your risk of developing plantar fasciitis.
