New Treatment for Common Foot Problems
PROBLEM: Heel Spurs/Plantar Fasciitis
SYMPTOMS: Severe pain typically in the morning. When standing, sudden elongation of the fascial band stretches and pulls on the heel. The intermittent pain often progresses to a day long nagging pain.
NEW NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT: Similar to the sound wave treatment that has been used for years to treat kidney stones, shockwaves are focused on the heel. Patients do not feel any pain as a local anesthetic is used. The sound waves break up the scar tissue and inflammation. Most patients will resume normal activities and wear regular shoes on the day of the procedure.
PROBLEM: Toenail Fungus
SYMPTOMS: Thick, discolored nails may split, crack or come loose. Condition is painful and unsightly.
NEW NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT: The CoolTouch Laser Treatment penetrates through the nail eliminating the destructive pathogens and revitalizing the nail. The laser causes no harm to healthy tissues and there is no discomfort during or after the 20 minute treatment. This laser is also effective on small spider veins, scars and warts.
