light therapy

I read where you can get some sort of light therapy for heel pain instead of the painful shots or surgery. Is there such a thing as light therapy and how successful is it?

Joyce:
I am not really famiiar with it but when you refer to it as an alternative to 'painful shots or surgery' you are not making an informed statement because 'painful shots or surgery' is not the treatment for this problem. Read the Hell Pain Book on this site in order to better understand what this is about.

Please note you wrote 'Hell Pain Book'. That's a book quite a lot of people here have read already.
