What Conditions Can Shockwave Therapy Treat?
Shockwave therapy tends to be effective on painful conditions with a source in soft tissue damage. In the foot and ankle, this can include (among others):
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Ankle Sprains
- Other Various Sports Injuries
Even chronic pain may benefit from shockwave therapy, as it can effectively “jumpstart” a cellular healing process that may have long ago slowed down. If the body is capable of healing more effectively, relief should follow with it.
We might also recommend shockwave therapy as an advanced option to potentially avoid the need for surgery. If a more conservative option than surgery can provide the results we need, it is worth considering.
Please note, however, that we will not always recommend shockwave for every situation as described above. Every case is different, as are the needs of every patient, and we only make recommendations following a thorough evaluation of both.
