Many people seek help for pain from plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the band of tissue that runs beneath the foot from the toes to the heel. Some simple remedies for plantar fasciitis include rest, exercise, and medication. It has also been found that shockwave therapy can be effective in reducing pain and helping to heal the plantar fascia. This non-invasive treatment consists of applying penetrating waves of ultrasound energy into the inflamed area. The body responds by creating new blood vessels and stimulates nerve endings that can help to heal the area. While the treatment occurs without any surgery, it can be painful. Sometimes multiple treatments are required, depending on the severity of the plantar fasciitis. Results of shockwave therapy may vary, but most commonly the pain of plantar fasciitis subsides. Fortunately, there are many ways to treat symptoms of plantar fasciitis. Please consult a podiatrist for more information on the treatment options that are best 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 Leonard Talarico, DPM from Georgia. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.
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.
