Laser Therapy

Anodyne & Laser Therapy

Anodyne therapy is a modality that is used to temporarily improve circulation and reduce pain, stiffness and muscle spasm. For more information about Anodyne, visit www.anodynetherapy.com

Laser Therapy delivers energy and therapeutic light into damaged cells, so the process of repair and healing are greatly accelerated. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) harnesses and magnifies energy from the invisible spectrum of light. The therapeutic laser gives these photons of light the ability to reach tissues up to 4 inches below the skin’s surface.

Approved by the FDA, laser Therapy has been in use for over 20 years around the world; hundreds of clinical studies and scientific papers have documented the effectiveness and safety.

Footmaxx Orthotics

Footmaxx Orthotics

Orthotics are shoes or insoles designed to allow the muscles, tendons and bones of the feet and lower legs to function at their highest potential. Orthotics can decrease pain, not only in your foot, but also in other parts of the body such as the knee, hip and lower back. They can also increase stability in an unstable joint and improve overall quality of life.

At Sundance Physical Therapy, we use the computerized Footmaxx system to analyze a patient’s gait and balance. Footmaxx uses innovative technology that allows us to obtain an accurate measurement of your foot and ankle. We can then use the same system to fit you for your orthotics. They can help to prevent sports injuries and improve your endurance, balance, and gait pattern. Diabetic orthotics and prescription orthotic sandals are also available. For further information, please see www.footmaxx.com
