Laser therapy uses light energy to stimulate cells at the area of injury to soothe pain, reduce inflammation, and initiate an accelerated healing response. We use the MLS laser in our practice, which utilizes two synchronized beams to offer maximum benefits and allows us to tailor the power and pulse rate to your specific needs. It is safe, painless, and FDA-approved for the treatment of wide-ranging musculoskeletal conditions. Our podiatrists use it to address:
- Inflammatory conditions like arthritis
- Sports injuries such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and sprains
- Post-surgical pain, inflammation, and stiffness
- Ulcers and slow-healing wounds
- And many other podiatric problems
Custom orthotics are insoles or inserts that fit inside your shoes to help relieve pressure and pain caused by abnormalities in your gait or structural issues with your feet. Not only do these devices provide support and cushioning precisely where your feet need it, but they can also help improve posture and alignment. Custom orthotics are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. Canyon Foot + Ankle Specialists are committed to helping you find the right orthotics to fit your lifestyle. Our podiatrists use orthotics to:
- Relieve podiatric aches and pains
- Alleviate pressure that could lead to ulcers and diabetic foot wounds
- Correct gait and alignment problems
- Support and protect the feet after surgery
Neurogenx is an innovative intervention for peripheral neuropathy that delivers an electronic signal similar to the body's natural electrical current deep into the tissues via an electromedical device. This can stimulate the body to increase metabolism and remove excess fluids and waste, which can help reduce swelling and pain and encourage healing. Neurogenx is safe, approved by the FDA, non-invasive, and painless. We use it to address peripheral neuropathy related to diabetes, fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, and other medical conditions.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Plasma, the main component of blood, is essential to the healing process, as it is responsible for carrying vital hormones, platelets, proteins, and nutrients throughout the body. Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) concentrates a patient's own plasma and injects it into an area of injury or concern, increasing platelets and other growth factors that can help to ease pain, reduce inflammation, and encourage the body to heal faster. PRP injections are safe, FDA-approved, minimally invasive, relatively painless, and can be used in conjunction with other treatments. Our podiatrists can use this therapy in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Foot, ankle, heel, ball-of-foot, and lower leg pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis
- And other common podiatry problems
Foot and Ankle Surgery
At Canyon Foot + Ankle, we pride ourselves on resolving podiatric conditions through conservative, non-surgical means whenever possible. However, when foot or ankle problems fail to respond to conservative care, surgery may provide the best chance for getting back on your feet, and back to living the life you love as quickly as possible. Our exceptional podiatrists are well-trained and experienced surgeons capable of performing all manner of podiatric surgical procedures, from removing ingrown nails to total ankle reconstruction. Most importantly, we'll make sure you're comfortable and confident in your care plan both before and after your surgery.
