Odell Beckham Jr. Receives Laser Treatment for Ankle Injury

After a lengthy few weeks off from a severe ankle sprain, Odell Beckham Jr. is back to full strength. This past weekend, he was able to haul in 9 passes for 79 yards and 2 touchdowns. Although the New York Giants ended up losing, Odell Beckham Jr. (or OBJ for short) showcased his elite speed and athleticism that has made him one of the faces of the National Football League.


Up until last week, his health was in question after getting hurt in Week 2 of the preseason. What was once described as a “6-8 week injury”, he was able to come back in half the time in only 3 weeks with advanced medical treatment. It was being reported that OBJ traveled to Phoenix to receive high-tech laser treatments on his ankle. The non-invasive machine concentrates high levels of laser light energy that penetrates the skin on a cellular level. This allows a significant reduction in pain, decreasing swelling, and accelerating the healing process.

Luckily for our patients, you don’t have to travel all the way to Arizona for the same treatment. Here at Advanced Podiatry in South Tampa, we offer Super Pulsed Laser Therapy as well. In addition to ankle sprains, some other conditions that can be treated include but not limited to shin splints, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, and pump-bump pain.

You don’t have to be a professional athlete to get laser treatment. This is perfect for anybody who is looking to get back to normal activity as fast as possible. We have successfully treated amateur high-school runners, active-duty military, weekend golfers and everybody in between. We understand not everybody has to suit up to go play on Sunday but we know everybody has important commitments to their family and careers.

If you are experiencing any pain in the foot or ankle, come and get evaluated to see if Super Pulsed Laser Therapy is appropriate for you. Call our office at 813-875-0555 for an appointment to see one of our doctors.
