Low Light Laser Therapy

Low Light Laser Therapy or LLLT is focused infrared light (laser = focused light). Extensive research studies continue to show the potent effect of LLLT for healing and stimulating your own body's stem cells and healing cascade to promote repair and regeneration of treated tissue. It achieves this by two methods:

  • Stimulating the mitochondria with your cells (photobiomodulation)
  • The release of nitric oxide from blood vessels that increases blood flow to treated area (angiogenic effect)

Additionally, Low Light Laser Therapy is based on two principles:

  • Watt = power
  • Joules = energy Joules, or energy, delivered to tissue is what stimulates healing.

How does it work?

Lasers that produce lower watts will deliver fewer joules requiring more treatments to achieve the correct dose or joules to promote healing.

Regeneration = Full restoration of tissues without scaring, restoring full function to injured tissue.

Repair = Healing of tissue with a mix of tissue and scar. Which causes decreased tissue mobility and pliability, potentially limiting function and leaving the risk of future injury or decreased function.

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.

Dr. Thomas Hecker

Thomas Hecker DPM uses the most powerful and effective laser available for musculoskeletal injuries. Lightforce laser is laser therapy that is unique to Northern Colorado.  

Lightforce is a class IV laser which means more power quicker and less treatment to achieve the maximal effect.

Regenerative Medicine

Thomas Hecker DPM is zealous about providing Regenerative Medicine at an affordable price.

“That’s the purpose of why I started the practice in Fort Collins: is to make regenerative medicine treatments and podiatric services affordable so people can choose it and receive the benefit. These types of treatments shouldn't be so expensive that it’s only touchable to a select few. I provide very high-end care for very reasonable costs–with high success.”

Interactive, Experienced, Personal

Dr. Hecker’s Fort Collins clinic is where he interacts with patients and involves them in the healing process and their treatment planning. He treats his patients like they are family, explaining what the issues are and what the treatment options are. Beyond being a skilled surgeon, Dr. Hecker does everything to help patients non-surgically, even when other doctors say they cannot help.  

Dr. Tom Hecker (Podiatrist Fort Collins, Colorado) established his foot and ankle clinic to provide both alternative and new therapies, including traditional treatments.

Affordable treatment that will provide both care-free and long-term comfort is what everyone deserves.
