Shockwave Therapy

We mainly use Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) for plantar fascitis/fasciosis and for Achilles tendonitis/tendinosis conditions. ESWT is often used when your injury is in a chronic state. This is when conservative treatments like stretching, physical therapy, and orthotics fail to provide adequate pain relief.  Shockwave therapy produces various levels of controlled trauma that causes the area to inflame and prompt natural healing to begin.

ESWT works by focusing shockwaves directly at the painful part of your foot. The shockwaves produce micro-traumas to the tissue that’s causing your pain.  Your body reacts to these micro-traumas by signaling for an increased blood supply to the painful area, as well as breaking down injured tissue and calcifications. In turn, blood vessel formation is increased and nutrients flood the area helping your body then heals itself. 

This in-office, 15-minute procedure, is typically performed with almost no pain and no anesthesia. Normally, patients receive three shockwave treatments over as many weeks. Low-intensity ESWT always takes place in the office and requires no anesthesia, medication or injections
