Now you can relieve the pain and inflammation of the heel associated with plantar fasciitis. Our new FDA market cleared laser has been proven in clinical tests to effectively treat this painful condition. The healing powers of this low level laser technology can reduce inflammation and eliminate pain in the plantar fascia in only a matter of weeks and return your patients to an active life once again.
Unlike other lasers on the market, the FX 635 is proven to promote cellular function through painless bio-stimulation. It provides patients experiencing chronic heel pain with a non-invasive, efficacious solution to quickly improve their walking comfort and quality of life without surgery. While other lasers may claim to treat this problem, only the FX 635 has been market cleared by the FDA to treat plantar fasciitis.
Thanks to its triple-head, hands-free design, the medical professional just has to set up the FX 635 and go. This allows the physician to see other patients while the FX 635 does its work.
Treating planter fasciitis has never been easier1) Rest the injured foot at the end of the examination table.

Background: Plantar fasciitis affects nearly 1 million people annually in the United States. Traditional nonoperative management is successful in about 90% of patients, usually within 10 months. Chronic plantar fasciitis develops in about 10% of patients and is a difficult clinical problem to treat. A newly emerging technology, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), has demonstrated promising results for the treatment of acute and chronic pain.
Methods: Thirty patients were administered LLLT and completed 12 months of follow-up. Patients were treated twice a week for 3 weeks for a total of 6 treatments and were evaluated at baseline, 2 weeks post procedure, and 6 and 12 months post procedure. Patients completed the Visual Analog
