Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) for Heel Pain
Our doctors specialize in treating plantar fasciitis and heel spurs and are particularly encouraged by their use of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy also known as ESWT as a non-surgical option for pain relief from heel pain.
Shockwave therapy uses an acoustic energy wave that is focused on the area of pain. The shock wave causes micro-trauma to the area stimulating an intense focused inflammatory response that promotes healing at the insertion point of the plantar fascia. ESWT has been acknowledged as revolutionizing the treatment of chronic heel pain, reducing inflammation and successfully triggering a healing response to the injured tissue with little or no side effects after a short recovery period.
Call us to schedule an appointment if you are experiencing heel pain. We will evaluate if ESWT is the correct treatment for you.
