Treating Plantar Fasciitis with Shockwave Therapy

Home » foot pain

In this blog, Dr. Supreet Shah explains how shock therapy works and how it can help to treat Plantar Fasciitis.

Shockwave therapy is a medical device that allows chiropractors to carry high-energy sound waves to painful spots and muscular-skeletal tissue. 

Plantar Fasciitis is the sharp pain in the heel area. For instance, a person might feel this pain early in the morning while stepping out of bed or right after a running session. People with the occupation that keeps them on their feet or sitting for long hours can also experience this sudden pain in the heel area. 

It is that fibrous tissue at the bottom of the heel that causes somebody pain. Shockwave therapy is used to emit sound waves deep into those tendons and ligaments to help break up scar tissue. This eases the pain and the tension, of Plantar fasciitis. Shockwave therapy greatly improves mobility and helps to eliminate the pain more permanently.

Are you dealing with physical pain?  Are you in search of optimal health, but don’t know where to start?

To get to the root cause of pain and discomfort and experience the power of sound, schedule an initial consultation, including a comprehensive evaluation and first treatment.
