Foot Pain

Woman with foot/heel painPlantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissues that runs across the bottom of the foot connecting the heel bone to the toes (plantar fascia). It causes stabbing pain at the bottom of the foot near the heel. The pain is usually worse with the first few steps after awakening, although it can also be triggered by long periods of standing or rising from sitting. It can flare up after exercise, not during it.

Plantar fasciitis is more common in runners, overweight people, and those who wear shoes with inadequate support.

Patient being treated for foot 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.
