Can Shockwave Therapy Help My Heel Pain?

Tuesday, 08 June 2021 00:00

In Shockwave therapy, acoustic waves are directed to damaged areas in the feet and ankles which can trigger a healing and regenerative response and reduce pain. Shockwave therapy can utilize either low-energy or high-energy waves, and can be administered in either a single, or series of treatment sessions. Shockwave therapy is FDA-approved for the treatment of plantar fasciitis—a painful condition in which the large fibrous connective tissue running along the bottom of the foot from heel to toe becomes inflamed. If you have pain in the bottom of your foot which may be particularly acute in the morning when you wake up, contact a podiatrist who can examine you, diagnose your issue, and discuss possible treatment plans.

 

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 Port Richmond Family Footcare. 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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Lumberton, NJ, Penn Boulevard, and Allegheny Avenue, in Philadelphia . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
