My Treatment Involves Shockwave Therapy
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy is an FDA approved non-surgical approach ot pain relief that has been used since the early 2000s for conditions such as plantar fasciitis, heel pain, tendonitis, elbow pain, etc. ESWT is especially beneficial for patients that have chronic heel pain and have not had much success with traditional therapies such as medications, arch supports, orthotics, steroid injections or stretching.
ESWT transmits high intensity shock waves to the location of the pain as to stimulate the area of the body and promote its healing. Results have been accomplished with ESWT use even in people with chronic conditions and often patients feel a sense of relief after the first few treatments.
