Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) September 29, 2009
According to a 2009 survey by the American Podiatric Medical Association, 39% percent of adults have experienced heel pain more than any other foot ailment within the last 12 months. To help those suffering from heel pain, Sound Foot Care Center of Connecticut, a provider of cutting-edge aesthetic and surgical podiatric care, is pleased to offer the NeuroTherm(R) radio frequency therapy as treatment.
NeuroTherm(R) is an innovative therapy that uses radio frequency energy to disrupt nerve function. By transmitting radio frequency energy through a thin needle inserted into the heel, the NeuroTherm(R) treatment is able to stop the nerve from transmitting pain. The treatment takes only 25 minutes and was designed specifically for the treatment of pain caused by Plantar Fasciitis and Neuroma. While patients can return to their normal level of activity immediately following the procedure, they may experience soreness in their feet due to irritation for a couple of weeks following treatment. Patients will experience full pain relief in four to six weeks.
"We are excited to begin offering the NeuroTherm(R) treatment," said Dr. Harris Greenberger, founder of Sound Foot Care Center of Connecticut. "Many Americans suffer from heel pain, which can be caused by something as simple as consistently wearing shoes that offer poor support. We are committed to offering patients new and effective treatments to alleviate their pain and are eager to begin working with NeuroTherm(R)."
The American Podiatric Medical Association's 2009 survey also revealed that 16% of those surveyed reported regularly experiencing heel pain. Despite the number of heel pain sufferers, 64% of respondents said they had not yet visited a medical professional, such as a podiatrist, for diagnosis and treatment.
"Heel pain sufferers should not be hesitant to receive treatment," Dr. Greenberger said. "NeuroTherm(R) treatment is minimally invasive and has been shown to have a 92% success rate in completely eliminating heel pain from Plantar Fasciitis alone. It is an important step towards a lifetime without heel pain."
