Shockwave Therapy and Plantar Fasciitis

Monday, 21 January 2019 00:00

Patients who endure chronic foot pain as a result of plantar fasciitis or tendonitis may be interested in engaging in shockwave therapy as a possible treatment option. This type of treatment is known to be effective in bringing upon a healing response which can precede the repair process. There are generally two types of this type of therapy, and these are referred to as low and high energy treatments. The treatment is performed in three or more sessions, and typically causes little or no pain. The latter may require anesthesia which may be effective in blocking any pain that may come from this one-time treatment method. There are known to be benefits in addition to disadvantages if this type of treatment is chosen, and it is strongly suggested to consult with a podiatrist who can determine if this is correct for you

Shockwave therapy is a treatment commonly used to treat various injuries and conditions, particularly plantar fasciitis in the feet. To learn more, consult with Dr. Charles Marchese from Avenue U Podiatry. Our doctor 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.
