Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs, and Shockwave Therapy

Tuesday, 14 June 2022 00:00

The benefits of having shockwave therapy performed can include rapid pain relief and restoring the ability to move the affected area. It is a technique that can be used to help foot conditions including heel spurs and plantar fasciitis. Shockwave therapy consists of using acoustic waves which have high energy that can help to repair tissue and accelerate tissue growth. Additionally, it can aid in providing improved blood supply and oxygen that may help the tendons and bones to heal faster. Many patients have found their chronic inflammation may be improved when shockwave therapy is applied. Mild relief may often be felt after one treatment. People may feel sore several hours after treatment but have reported it does not limit them to complete daily activities. If you have chronic foot pain and would like to know more about the benefits of shockwave therapy, please consult with a podiatrist.

Shockwave therapy is a treatment commonly used to treat various injuries and conditions, particularly plantar fasciitis in the feet. To learn more, consult with one of our podiatrists from Achilles Foot Clinic. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a new treatment option designed to treat bone conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, and others. Shockwave therapy uses high intensity sound waves that are directed to the affected tissues of the body with pinpoint accuracy. The effects are very beneficial, leading to a production of collagen fibers, eliminating inflammation.

Who Benefits from Shockwave?

Shockwave is recommended for patients suffering from heel pain and associated problems. Heel pain is a common condition which can be caused by obesity, overexertion, and spending a substantial amount of time on hard floors with your feet exposed and unsupported.

Fast and Easy

The therapy is actually a simple process that can leave patients feeling better the very next day. Shockwave therapy is not as dramatic as it sounds. It enables more blood flow to effected areas, addressing the source of the problem and allowing treatment to last for a long time.

Treatment & Recovery Time

Shockwave treatment will enable your feet to recover quickly. This is especially important since surgery is not required. It is cost effective and does not require the use of anesthesia. This treatment is a better option to surgery, since it is proven safe.
