ESWT and Plantar Fasciitis

Tuesday, 15 June 2021 00:00

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-surgical procedure that can be used to treat plantar fasciitis, a common foot problem that can cause heel and arch pain. Many cases of plantar fasciitis respond to more conservative treatment such as activity and footwear modifications. However, in some cases plantar fasciitis pain persists and requires more intensive intervention. ESWT can help. During this procedure, a wave of sound energy is delivered into the affected foot to stimulate blood flow and the release of inflammatory mediators. This is thought to help heal the area and reduce or relieve the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. If you have chronic plantar fasciitis that is not responding to other treatments, consult with your podiatrist whether ESWT may be an option 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 one of our podiatrists from Riznyk Podiatry. 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.
