Shock wave therapy is the latest technology used to treat Heel Pain, Achilles Tendonitis and other soft tissue pathologies. It is a gentle yet effective treatment, and it can reduce the tenderness of soft tissue injuries in just a few days.
Shock wave therapy involves the application of high energy Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) waves through the surface of the skin to accelerate the healing process, dramatically reduce pain and promote healing. The body responds with increased metabolic activity at the site of the pain, stimulating and accelerating the healing process. Treatment only takes a few minutes and pain is noticeably reduced in just a few days.
Your Podiatrist will first locate the pain through palpation. They will then mark out the treatment area and apply contact gel. Using the handheld applicator, your Podiatrist will deliver the shock wave.
ESTW is used successfully in sports medicine and in daily medical practice worldwide. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in a multitude of clinical studies and has been approved by the FDA.
With no negative side effects, injections or strong medications needed, you will be back on your feet in no time.
