Achilles Pain

Achilles Pain Treatment MachineThe Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body. It joins the gastrocnemius (calf) and the soleus muscles of the lower leg to the heel bone of the foot. Tendons are very strong, but not very flexible, and the Achilles tendon is no exception. This means that it can only stretch so far before it becomes inflamed (tendonitis, tears). A compromised Achilles tendon causes discomfort from a slight ache, tenderness, stiffness to severe pain, especially when bending the foot downward.

Patient being treated for Achilles Tendon pain“Extra-Corporeal” Shock Wave Therapy is a new technology using shockwaves to treat chronic painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system.

A shockwave is an intense but very short energy wave travelling faster than the speed of sound. The word “Extra-corporeal” means “outside the body” and refers to the fact that the shockwaves are generated outside the body.

Shockwave therapy treatment is very effective for plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, and other tissue pathologies.
