We offer Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for patients suffering from Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis, two kinds of heel pain.
How does shockwave therapy treat heel pain?
The acoustic sound waves from the shockwave machine make microscopic tears and loosen the tendon at the site, establish a fresh blood supply, nutrients, and new tissue cells in the affected area, and make your body recognize the inflammation as an acute injury as opposed to a chronic injury. In essence, this procedure promotes the natural healing process of an injury.
We use the high energy Dornier shockwave machine with ultrasound guidance to deliver each shock in the precisely correct location and performs the treatment in the comfort and convenience of your podiatrist’s office in as little as 30 minutes. This non-invasive procedure is a fantastic alternative to surgery and allows patients zero recovery time, the ability to return to work the same day, and a success rate that matches any surgical option.
