The only FDA cleared laser for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Discover the first laser demonstrated to 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 regenerative 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 you to an active life once again.

Dr. Ferguson says...

“Plantar fasciitis can be extremely painful and persistent. Erchonia’s FX 635 laser is ideal for chronic heel pain sufferers because it offers effective, pain-free treatment—without side effects. In just three weeks with two treatments per week, patients can have significant and lasting relief from plantar fasciitis.”

What can laser help?

Here are just a few of the things where laser can help:

  • Low Back Pain

  • Neck and Shoulder Pain

  • Musculoskeletal Pain

  • Post-Operative Pain 

  • Heel Pain

  • Plantar Fasciitis

What about the brain?

Low-level lasers have been shown to have a positive impact on many aspects involving brain health.

My personal interest in laser for the brain started after my sister suffered strokes.  Shortly thereafter, the news was flooded with the cases of  CTE (chronic traumatic encephalitis) caused by repeated concussions.  I, myself, played soccer through college and graduate school and suffered numerous concussions!

The more I read, the more I realized that this treatment needed to be a part of my health regimen and my patient's."

How the Erchonia low-level lasers work

Cómo funcionan los láseres de bajo nivel Erchonia

Benefits of Laser Therapy:

  • Non-Toxic

  • Virtually No Contra-Indications

  • Non-Invasive

  • Easy to Apply

  • No Side Effects or Pain

  • Very Safe

  • Highly Effective for Patient (more than 90% efficacy)

  • Superior Alternative to: Analgesics, NSAID’s, Other Medications, Other Modalities

  • Reduces Need for Surgery


Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects:

  • Rapid Cell Growth — Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.

  • Faster Wound Healing — Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.

  • Increased Metabolic Activity — Higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).

  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation — Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Action — Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.

  • Increased Vascular Activity — Laser light induces temporary vasodilation increasing blood flow to damaged areas.

  • Stimulated Nerve Function — Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life


For over 20 years, clinicians found that laser therapy treats a variety of conditions including:

  • Acute and Chronic Pain

  • Arthritis

  • Back Pain

  • Bursitis

  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Ligament Sprains

  • Muscle Strain

  • Soft Tissue Injuries

  • Tendonitis

  • Tennis Elbow


Neck and Shoulder Pain

A variety of low level lasers are proven to be effective in reducing and eliminating acute and chronic pain in the neck & shoulders. Many patients find that this solution is a much more effective and immediate alternative to traditional pain medications. Combined with forms of chiropractic and therapy, the Erchonia lasers can help patients lead a normal, active, and healthy life without debilitating pain.


Decrease pain & inflammation. Increase range of motion

The Erchonia Laser PL5000 Laser is used to enhance tissue recovery, effective in accelerating healing burns and wounds, and significantly advance/speed up injury healing time.  Low-Level Laser Therapy promotes healing in many conditions, including chronic/acute pain, and other joint and neurological conditions.

Erchonia's lasers made history by becoming the first to receive FDA market clearance for the treatment of chronic pain and increasing range of motion, proven through two double-blind IRB studies.  The Erchonia Lasers are the most advanced lasers on the market, with their sleek revolutionary design, patented line generated beam, and the ability to program independent frequencies in all of their family of lasers.  It has been found to be extremely beneficial for enhancing and accelerating wound healing and reducing acute inflammation.

Unlike high power lasers that use heat and destroy tissue, low energy lasers affect the cellular energy of the underlying tissue.  Hot lasers have a thermal effect and have an output of 1MW or above.  Cold (or) Low-Level Lasers do not have a thermal effect on tissue: lasers that stimulate biological function have an output below 10mw- milliwatts (ten- one thousand's of a watt).

With over 200 clinical studies – many of which are double-blind, placebo-controlled - and in excess of 2000 published articles on LLLT (low-level laser therapy), this innovative technology has a well-documented research and application history.  Having grown far beyond its distant Institutional Review Board (IRB) and experimental treatment status, LLLT is now being considered a therapy of choice for difficult pain management challenges such as fibromyalgia and myofascial pain.

Low-Level Laser Therapy is FDA-cleared to successfully treat many conditions such as acute and chronic pain reduction, repetitive use disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome, soft tissue strains and sprains, inflammation reduction, enhanced tissue wound healing, and cell regeneration.

Erchonia Cold Laser FX635


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 regenerative 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. 


Nothing else like it

Unlike other lasers on the market, the FX 635 is proven to promote cellular regeneration 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.




How does the FX635 work?


The FX635 laser produces a low-level, or cold, output that has no thermal effect on the body's tissue (you can't even feel it).  FDA-approved for both efficacy and safety, FX635's low level laser technology works by stimulating a physiological response which accelerates healing.


Is the laser FDA approved?


Yes. The laser was granted market clearance by the FDA in April 2014 for the reduction of chronic heel pain from plantar fasciitis.


Are there any side effects?


No. There are no side effects; no pain, discomfort or recovery time of any kind.  It is completely non-invasive.


How was the FX635 tested?




Can I feel the laser working?


The patient will feel no heat or any sensation from the laser.


How soon could I experience relief?


Results vary from patient to patient but could begin to appear even after the first treatment.  Still, findings support a treatment plan consisting of 10 treatments for best results.
