Getting into shape after a sedentary winter is a must in order to zero love handles or to lose some extra fat before the summer. As running enables burning off even 1000 calories per hour, it is elected the "must-do" to reactivate metabolisms and speed up weight loss. However, the stop imposed by the cold season must not be underestimated: untrained leg muscles and ligaments can rebel to excessive training creating some problems, but feet also do not lag behind. It is in fact frequent for runners, both amateurs and pros, to have to deal with painful conditions and inflammations which affect the nerves in the sole of the foot, reaching as far as the heel and ankle. Runners in fact commonly suffer from metatarsal problems, heel inflammations, bursitis, calcaneal spur inflammation and plantar fasciitis which bring training to a halt, ensure suffering and inevitably have spill over effects on daily life.
In order to get back on track quickly without losing the benefits of training, several specialists advise their patients suffering from these problems to undergo MLS® Laser Therapy sessions, as these speed up the healing process thanks to the anti-inflammatory effect, providing concrete results from the first applications. By producing controlled thermal effects, always below the danger threshold, the MLS® impulse stimulates biochemical reactions and vasodilation increasing the oxygen supply and nutrients to the treated area. The direct consequences are not only solving the inflammatory process and reabsorbing the oedema, but the rapid reduction of the pain symptoms, thanks to the analgesic action of the treatment. This is confirmed by the data supplied to "Podiatry Management" magazine by Doctor Jeffrey Adler, (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) and director of the Adler Footcare podiatry clinic in Greater New York who defines ASAlaser's MLS® Laser Therapy as "a primary method to alleviate pain in patients suffering from feet problems such as bursitis or plantar fasciitis," which are in fact common amongst runners.
"95% of my patients treated with MLS® - stated the specialist - obtains a pain reduction of 80%, managing to recover a good quality of life quickly".
A similar evaluation is also supplied by Doctor Mitchell R. Waskin, Podiatrist and Medical Director of The Foot & Ankle Center in Richmond, who defines the ASAlaser therapeutic solution in an interview during the television program "Virginia This Morning" (CBS-6) as "a new revolutionary procedure which allows efficaciously alleviating foot pain, but also that affecting the heel and ankle, in just a few sessions. Its anti-inflammatory effect acts on the tissue and speeds up the healing process".
Doctor Efren Buff De La Rosa, a podiatrist and surgeon in El Paso, also knows this well and states that MLS® is "an innovative technology suitable for treating foot pain and inflammation common amongst runners and athletes who can benefit from its beneficial effects in just a few minutes". Getting back to running has never been easier, painless and safe as is embodied by the case of Nathan Freeburg of the PRC Race Team, who solved his Achilles tendon problem to the left foot in just a few sessions. "After the first session - says the athlete - I was shocked by how much better I felt. The anti-inflammatory effect of MLS® acted on the tissue, increasing the cell metabolism and speeding up my recovery. All this with fast and painless sessions". Ready to start running?
