Extracorporal Shock Wave – We utilize the shockwave, an intense sound wave given off with rapid pulses to treat many conditions — from muscle skeletal to nerve pain. We have great success with plantar fasciitis and neuromas of the feet. No known side effects and immediate relief. The shockwave technology was first utilized to break up kidney stones and gall stones. A secondary effect was pain relief. There are no side effects from the treatment, it is non-invasive and immediate relief is obtained. Sometimes two to five treatments are needed. There can be some minor discomfort during the treatment, which only lasts about 5-8 minutes.
Conditions treated by Extracorporal Shock Wave:
- Plantar fasciitis – works as well or better than cortisone injections, provides immediate relief with no side effects
- Neuromas of the feet
- Joint pain
- Ligament injury or pain
- Tendon injury or pain
