How Cold Laser Therapy And Kinesio Taping Can Be Used Together For Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

If you wake up in the morning and feel pain near your heel or if it hurts to run or climb stairs, you may have plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that connects your toes to your heel to provide stability in the arch of the foot. When the plantar fascia becomes inflamed, it is called plantar fasciitis, and it is the most common form of heel pain. Although the exact cause of plantar fasciitis is unknown, it is believed that there may be a link to overuse and strain on the tissue, as well as a person’s arch shape. There are several forms of plantar fasciitis treatment available, and some of these treatments can be combined to offer better results


Plantar Fasciitis Treatments: Cold Laser Therapy And Kinesio Taping

What Is Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio Taping
helps to provide support to the foot and take pressure off the arch of the foot. This helps to reduce plantar fasciitis pain by facilitating proper muscle function of the foot. Kinesio Taping also lifts the skin to help decompress the layers of the fascia and facilitate the movement of lymphatic fluids, which can help to decrease pressure on the plantar fascia. Although you can apply Kinesio tape yourself as a form of plantar fasciitis treatment, you should first consult with a trained professional. They will tell you if Kinesio Taping will help relieve your pain and they will show you how to position the tape for ideal support.

What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Also called Low-Level Laser Therapy, this plantar fasciitis treatment uses a low-energy laser beam to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The cold laser is placed over the area of treatment and penetrates the skin to reach the inflamed tissue. The laser used during Cold Laser Therapy does not feel hot (hence the name). This allows the laser to pass through the skin to the underlying tissues without causing any damage or pain to the skin. The lightwaves from the laser stimulate the injured tissue below the skin and encourage rapid cell growth and increased blood flow, which helps more oxygen and nutrients reach the damaged tissue and encourage healing.

How Can Kinesio Taping And Cold Laser Therapy Work Together?
Combining the healing properties of Cold Laser Therapy and the pain relief and decreased pressure provided by Kinesio Taping can facilitate effective healing. These two treatments provide increased blood flow and mechanical support to the plantar fascia for quick and effective healing. The combination of the two practices offers healing and pain relief together.
