Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Do you suffer from persistent heel pain? Stabbing pain in the heel of your foot, particularly in the mornings or after long periods of standing, could be down to Plantar Fasciitis – one of the most common causes of heel pain.
It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).
Shockwave Therapy Treatment could be the answer!
Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Plantar fasciitis causes mild discomfort to moderate pain, and although it will often decrease as you move around, some sufferers endure relentless sharp pains in their heels. Does your heel hurt after long periods of standing or exercising?
Many of us have jobs that involve being on our feet, and constant heel pain can hinder our ability to enjoy our daily activities.
You may have tried painkillers, massage and other home remedies to ease the pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis but find it keeps returning.
Shockwave therapy treatment offers longterm relief from the condition.
What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis is caused by straining the part of your foot that connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).
You may be susceptible to plantar fasciitis if you:
- Exercise on hard surfaces
- Exercise with a tight calf or heel
- Overstretch the sole of your foot
- Are doing a lot more walking, running or standing up
- Wear shoes with poor cushioning or support
- Are overweight
- Are between the ages of 40 and 60
- Have a job that involves being on your feet
- Have flat feet or a high arch
Shockwave Therapy Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
Until recently, patients suffering from Plantar Fasciitis had the options of steroid injections, custom orthotics, or invasive surgeries as treatment. Injections reduce inflammation and swelling but are not a long-term solution as they can weaken the tendon. Surgery requires recovery time and carries risks of side effects, and custom orthotics require the use of a special shoe.
Shockwave therapy treatment does not have any of the above downsides as it is a noninvasive treatment. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is an innovative treatment that is quick (usually 20-30 minutes), effective and does not require significant recovery time. Results are often seen within the first few treatments, with many patients returning to normal activities pain-free. Imagine those first few steps in the morning with no discomfort – ESWT could be the perfect solution.
What are Shockwaves?
Shockwaves are high-energy sound waves transmitted to the affected part of the body to accelerate healing. This increases the blood flow and stimulates cell regeneration, promoting self-healing within the body and reducing pain. These shockwaves also break down calcifications and injured tissue.
Around 60-90% of shockwave therapy treatments successfully reduce or completely eliminate pain.
