What is it?

Wherever we go, whatever we do, our feet act as shock absorbers for all our activities, from walking to running to playing sports. We never realize how much our feet work for us every day until a problem arises. Having tendon problems or chronic musculoskeletal foot pain that don’t seem to respond to conservative at-home treatments or medicines is quite frustrating and needs proper attention. Shockwave Therapy Treatment has emerged as a promising treatment if you are suffering from chronic tendon problems.

Shockwave Therapy Treatment is a procedure that uses either pressurized air or electromagnetic pulses to deliver shock waves to your body to help treat various chronic disorders.

Shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), is a device used in orthopedics, urology, physiotherapy, sports medicine, and veterinary medicine, which helps in fast pain relief and mobility restoration. The therapy is a non-surgical one with no need for painkillers, makes it an ideal treatment to fasten recovery and heal various indications causing chronic foot pain.

How it works?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique that uses shockwaves to increase blood flow to the damaged areas of your foot to treat muscular problems by stimulating the body’s natural healing process to speed up healing.

During the process, a probe is placed on your skin, where an electrical charge will create shockwaves over the affected areas that are causing pain. Shockwave therapies are of two types: high-energy and low-energy. High-energy waves require a patient to receive a local anesthetic before the procedure, whereas low-energy waves can be done without anesthesia. Low-energy waves are more popular as it is more comfortable, and patients can even instruct the doctors about the exact areas of pain to provide more effective relief.

Though many patients can bear weight on foot right after their therapy, it is advisable to avoid any strenuous physical activity for a couple of weeks to make the healing process effective and fast.

What it treats?

Shockwave therapy is proven beneficial to people suffering from severe cases of Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis. This procedure is commonly used to treat persistent or chronic heel pain that doesn’t respond to any other treatment options. However, shockwave therapy is not ideal for patients suffering from neuropathy or loss of sensation in their feet. They should not be used for treating patients who suffer from seizures or a heart condition as well. Therefore, it is essential to discuss your full medical history with our doctors’ team during your medical evaluation to ensure that this procedure is right for you.
