In December 2012 I had surgery to remove bone spurs from both heels.  I am a very slow healer, and after almost 9 months, my feet still were not back to 100%.  I had a limited range of motion, and when I tried to stretch my Achilles tendons flared up and were extremely painful. As a ballroom dancer, I pushed my feet harder than most, so being in constant pain had put restrictions on the most prevelant part of my life.  In August 2013, I began laser treatments.  Now after 3 months of treatment, my pain is gone and I no longer have limitations on my dancing.
