These are the folks to see.
"I had long term heel pain issues from an old achilles tendon injury that has bothered me most of my adult life. In 2022 the pain got so bad that I was limping all the time and couldn't put my full weight on my right foot due to the heel pain, as well as throwing my gait and biomechanics totally out of alignment. After many short term treatments over the years, the pain always returned. After checking out the Hecker Sports website and a recommendation by my PT, I went in to see Dr. Hecker in the fall of 2022. My treatment plan was for a full course of three different lasers for two months. I am happy to say that the lasers worked wonders for my heel pain, and I am back doing all my fitness activities, including running, hiking, biking and swimming again, and am 95-100% pain free. I am thrilled to feel this good again and treated myself to two long hikes in the Grand Canyon last November with no heel pain issues at all. The entire staff at Hecker Sports are helpful, friendly, courteous and professional..."

Thanks, Dr. Hecker!!
"After struggling with ankle issues for many years, I reached out to Dr. Hecker and his team for prolotherapy and laser treatments. I was determined to get to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. With his practical help, PT, and determination, I reached the top...pain-free! I highly recommend him as an alternative to surgery! Thanks, Dr. Hecker!!"

I highly recommend!
"I highly recommend Hecker Sports Medicine! I partially tore my Achilles and calf on October 12 playing indoor soccer. I was in significant pain, and not having been injured like this previously I even worried it was a fully torn Achilles. I called multiple providers and fortunately Jessica at Hecker Sports Medicine took my call. I am so grateful to Jessica and the team as they were able to squeeze me in that first day; I love a business that makes it happen and values their patients! (Side note—the big practice in town couldn’t see me for NINE days and I’m pretty sure it would not have been the right treatment). Dr. Hecker and his staff were able to quickly rule out surgery and they set me up on a treatment plan that very quickly showed results. Thanks to Ryan, Patrick, and their assortment of magical tools (though I wouldn’t say every session felt good haha) my pain was quickly gone and soon I was back to walking. I have since progressed to physical therapy which is well-coordinated with Dr. Hecker..."

The staff are wonderful.
"I had both Achilles torn. I have been miserable and limping for 5 years. Everyone always wanted to recommend surgery with no guarantees so I held off. No surgery and within two weeks I was so excited about my appointment because my pain was reduced dramatically. I waited six weeks to do all my treatments and can really say I am healed and am already playing soccer with the kids. Definitely recommend this place and recommend to do what the Dr says. The staff are wonderful from the front to the back. I’m almost sad that I’m better, I love this place."

Safe and incredibly effective.
"I am a 43 year old former athlete who is dependent upon physical activity as a means of maintaining good mental health and stress reduction. I just completed treatment on a severely torn plantar fascia/ruptured ligaments/ soft tissue damage from a climbing injury I suffered over a year ago. Not only did Dr. Hecker give me confidence that there were alternative treatments besides surgery that could heal my injury, but he gave me hope that after completing my treatment I would have a foot that was as strong and healthy as it was prior to my injury. The entire staff was helpful, knowledgeable, kind, and efficient, and after only 5 1/2 weeks of treatment, my foot is completely healed with no evidence of scarring or disrepair. In addition, he urged me to maintain a (slightly modified) exercise regimen that was as close to normal as possible throughout my treatment, because it would aid in tissue regeneration. This was a stark contrast to the standard recommendation of surgery to repair and 3 months of..."
