Regenerative medicine creates a stimulating factor in one's body, telling it to start to recover in an appropriate way, helping to restore tissue to being whole.
A person who is experiencing a burning sensation in their feet may have nerve damage in their legs (also know as neuropathy). Diabetes is the most common cause of burning pain in feet, but there are other possible causes as well. A person’s occupation or profession can also be the culprit for a bottom of feet burning sensation. Letter carriers, police officers, warehouse workers, teachers and anyone else on their feet for long periods of time could cause the problem.
Burning pain in feet, or the feeling of “pins and needles” is most often limited to the soles, but the pain sensation can extend up into the lower legs or ankles.
No matter the cause or pain of your feet burning, if it is persistent, you need an evaluation. Hecker Sports and Regenerative Medicine Fort Collins will accurately diagnose what your injury is, avoiding unnecessary and costly surgery. Perhaps your pain is something more complicated like nerve damage or it might be something simple like improper footwear. We focus on the root issue and the actual nature of the problem.
We involve our patients in their custom treatment plan, interacting with patients and educating them as well. This helps them increase their speed of recovery and contributes to re-injury prevention.

More about Thomas Hecker DPM and his team.
The procedures we offer at Hecker Sports and Regenerative Medicine are comparatively inexpensive and are much more complete having a substantial recovery than other treatments.
There are a lot of people who are not good candidates for surgery simply because of where they are in life, like having to take three months off for surgery.
Our protocols allow patients to recover well without necessarily having to take time off of work. We are here to get patients better in the midst of doing “life”.
The short answer is that our Fort Collins podiatry clinic has a patient-centered focus on non-surgical repair and “return to life activities”, not expensive (and sometimes unnecessary) surgery. We believe it is important for you to understand and have help with all of your healing options and foot maintenance.
Thomas Hecker DPM has a mission: to bring techniques and opportunities to people that are less expensive than conventional procedures, require less downtime, yet still offer the ability for very successful and very high-end recovery.
Hecker Sports and Regenerative Medicine is doing more that just helping to make a body better or building a better scar; we’re restoring the tissue back to its whole, how it was originally intended to function.
