Call Today, the team at Rochester Podiatry is available to answer any questions you may have about these advanced treatments.
Heel pain can easily be treated by ESWT. This procedure includes a series of shockwaves also known as pressure or sound waves which are focused onto the targeted tissue. These waves are delivered outside of the body to trigger your body's own repair mechanisms. ESWT procedures painlessly stimulate and reactivate healing to advance normal tissue healing. In years past, invasive surgical intervention was often required. ESWT is a non-invasive procedure.
If you have been diagnosed with and treated for chronic plantar fascitis, heel spurs or achilles tendonitis and have failed to respond to three conservative treatments, you may be a candidate for ESWT. Conservative treatments include rest, physical therapy, heel cushions, taping, cortisone injections, orthotics and others.
