SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Many patients come to our podiatry practice, PodiatryCare and the Heel Pain Center, with heel pain, Achilles tendinitis and multiple types of sports injuries.

What we are doing is a treatment called Shockwave Therapy. It works by using intense pulses of sound waves to break up the scar tissue and increase blood flow to the injured area.

  • This helps to reduce inflammation, relieve the pain and stimulate the body's own healing processes.

  • The procedure is performed in our office, and patients experience no down time.

  • After the treatment, many patients experience immediate relief from their symptoms which continues to improve with subsequent treatments over a 3-5 week period.

  • We see a high level of successful outcomes using shockwave especially when traditional conservative treatments have not been effective.

Since we treat many athletes, our Doctors can really appreciate new non-invasive treatments like shockwave that helps keep our patients out of surgery and back in the game.

So, if you're experiencing chronic foot and ankle pain, or if you're suffering from an overuse injury, schedule an appointment to see us to determine if you are a candidate for Shockwave Therapy.
