A treatment option that may be effective in treating foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, is referred to as shockwave therapy. There are typically two ways to administer this type of treatment, and these are known as high or low energy. The latter is generally given in three or more doses, and there is little to no pain that is felt. The former is given in one session, and may require the patient to be under anesthesia. The purpose of shockwave therapy is to initiate a healing response in the body, which may cause a faster delivery of nutrients to the damaged area. If you have a foot condition that may benefit from the use of shockwave therapy, it is strongly advised that you schedule a consultation with a podiatrist.

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.
