Dynamic Foot and Ankle Center is highly skilled in treating a variety of conditions and issues. Whether you have slight discomfort or severe pain, we can provide you with care that allows you to live the lifestyle you want!
Custom foot orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot while you walk. We understand that everyone is different, which is why custom foot orthotics are made just for you.
Surgical Corrections of Foot Disorders
In most cases, invasive methods are not necessary to correct many foot disorders. Though in more extreme conditions, surgery may be required. The need for surgery will depend on the severity of the condition, the amount of pain the patient is experiencing, and the patient’s past response to various treatments.
MLS Laser Therapy
MLS stands for Multiwave Locked System. Laser therapy has been successfully used for decades. It was first documented in the 1960’s. However, today MLS proves to be the next advancement in laser technology and works effectively in a non-invasive way to heal and treat pain, chronic and acute conditions. Patients have reported feeling virtually no pain during treatment. The effects are long-lasting, and induces our body’s natural rapid healing process.
Does it work?
MLS Laser Therapy works by using wavelengths of light to treat painful conditions. The laser penetrates deeply into the muscle tissue to restore our bodies on a cellular level. The light energy produced by the MLS laser promotes soft tissue healing and helps repair our damaged cells. The Multiwave Locked System laser also revitalizes our natural healing processes and helps speed up our cellular reproduction and growth.
What makes MLS Laser Therapy so great?
It rapidly reduces pain, improves blood circulation, is non-surgical and non-invasive, virtually painless, and can speed up healing processes! There are also no known side effects and each treatment is as equal if not more effective than other therapies. MLS Therapy focuses on healing the underlying root cause of the pain. Patients have seen long term results after a couple months of treatment.
MLS Therapy also triggers the anti-inflammatory responses from the cells in our tissue. This helps a great amount with reducing inflammation, pain, and swelling from the area being treated. Other additional benefits of MLS Laser Therapy include reduced muscle spasms and increased circulation to the injured area which also nourishes the damaged cells. It heals our injuries on a cellular level.
What are the treatment sessions like?
We recommend treatment 2-3 times per week with each treatment session being up to 15 minutes long. The area to be treated will be examined, outlined, and the laser will be applied to the area in a pulsing, rhythmic pattern. Though you are not able to see the laser physically working, be assured its therapeutic effects are in motion.

Our amino injections are a non-surgical solution that will help treat and prevent injuries in the feet and ankles. The injection reduces inflammation and improves your recovery time. They encourage healing and tissue growth in the injured area, and are a non-steroid, natural
anti-inflammatory agent that can prevent the need for surgery. Amino injections also stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Amino injections have been used for over a century, and signal stem cells in the body to repair damaged tissues by helping to stimulate the movement of oxygen and nutrients to the injured area. This flow of oxygen helps new tissue grow. The amino injections are a great alternative to surgery and differ from PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections, and also from corticosteroid injections. PRP and corticosteroid injections do not help the damaged tissue regeneration; they cover up the pain instead of getting to the route cause.
Amino injections treat the root cause of pain and regenerate our tissues on a cellular level. The amino injections make our cells work harder in order to repair damaged tissues and also helps prevent injuries from recurring. It gives immense pain relief and encourages the cells to accelerate their healing process and shortens recovery time.

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery
A bunion or hallux valgus is a condition whereby your big toe develops a bony bump on the side of the big toe joint. The bony bump occurs when the big toe turns inward, pressing or overlapping the smaller toes, changing your foot alignment. Bunions gradually develop over time and become painful, swollen, tender, and sore. The outer skin around them thickens when the bump is pressurized by footwear. Poor alignment of the big toe may also cause pain and discomfort.
