NEW Laser Relieves Pain FAST!

Now available in Montana for the first time


When a physical condition or injury affects mobility or quality of life, there is one goal: A rapid return to every-day activities.

The Foot Care Center is proud to be on the medical technological forefront by offering MLS Laser Therapy.  We have invested in the very best technology as a key component of our continuing quest to offer you the finest in health care.

Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and proven successful as evidenced by extensive and credible studies conducted in our country’s finest institutions, including Harvard University.

MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology.

Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth.  As a result of exposure to the MLS Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster.  As inflammation is reduced pain subsides very quickly.  In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.

There are no known side-effects!  Laser therapy is cleared by the FDA and is safe and effective.

 Story of The Foot Care Center

of Montana and Wyoming

The Foot Care Center is the largest and most active podiatry group in Wyoming and Montana. The first office was opened in 1987 in Sheridan, WY by Craig McLaws, DPM. As the only podiatrist in northern Wyoming, Dr. McLaws ran outreach clinics in the basin area, in Gillette, and other surrounding communities. In 2005, we added our full time podiatry office in Billings, MT.

The doctors and staff at The Foot Care Center are committed to improving the health of your feet, ankles, and lower legs. As experts in the field of podiatry, we are able to provide you with comprehensive exams and diagnostic analyses of your condition. We also offer innovative treatments for injuries, diseases, and other conditions of your feet, ankles, and lower legs.

Fall Foot Care Tips

Be Careful With Boots

Sometimes, boots are made to keep the bad weather and cold temperatures out, instead of focused on what�??s inside. If your feet, ankles, or even lower back are feeling particularly sore after wearing your favorite pair of boots�??some insoles or arch supports might be needed. Along with providing extra support, these will also keep your feet in proper alignment while you take care of those Fall tasks that require boots, whether it�??s raking a muddy yard, or just walking through the rain.


Boots can also be especially warm�??which is great for those frigid mornings, but can cause an ideal breeding ground for foot odor, and fungus or athlete�??s foot. If your feet �??can�??t breathe�?? �?? be sure to wash them daily, change your socks, and be proactive with antifungal spray or cream as one of your Fall foot care tips.

Keep footwear dry

The fall season brings wet weather in our area. Let your shoes dry out properly before using again. Wet shoes promote fungal and bacterial growth which can lead to infection and odor.


Wash your feet often

Don�??t go to bed without washing your feet. If you leave dirt on the skin�??s surface, it can become irritated and infected. Wash your feet every evening with soap and water.


Dry your feet well

Dry your feet thoroughly after washing them, especially between the toes which is where germs such as Athlete's foot can easily breed. Then, apply a moisturising foot cream (not body lotion).


Shoe shop in the afternoon

Shop for shoes in the afternoon. Feet swell as the day goes on and if shoes fit in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest, you can be assured they will always be comfortable.


Managing diabetic feet When the weather cools

During the fall and winter, cooler temperatures cause the body to naturally lower blood circulation in your extremities, such as your toes and feet. Diabetics already experience a loss of blood flow to the feet�??so it�??s important during cold weather to treat your feet well to protect and keep them comfortable.


Diabetic socks encourage blood flow (meaning they help your feet stay warm!) through a lack of seams, and being non-binding. If your feet are drying out from the change in weather and seasons, you may also want to consider some diabetic foot moisturizer or foot wash. These are great for keeping your feet soft and healthy, no matter what weather the Fall and Winter bring.


Enhancing Lives

Our goal is to improve your life by creating comfort, one step at a time.
