The Hugar Foot & Ankle Specialists are pleased to announce the addition of Shockwave therapy in the treatment of chronic heel pain. Using state-of-the-art OssaTron technology from American Shockwave Therapies, we now offer an exciting new alternative in the treatment of this condition. Please click below for more information on this new, non-surgical treatment.

Heel Pain Relief With Non-Surgical Shockwaves

Shockwave therapy is a new non-surgical procedure that is now utilized in the treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis pain associated with or without heel spur syndrome. This exciting new technique takes advantage of low energy sound waves that attempt to break up fibrous adhesions and scar tissue within the tight plantar fascia without actually making any surgical incisions.

This proven method of care is similar to the more common sound wave based lithotripsy procedure used for the treatment of painful kidney stones. Lithotripsy has been used around the world for over twenty years with great success.

Developed in Europe over ten years ago and used extensively around the world, ESWT is fast becoming the treatment of choice for chronic plantar fasciitis and soon will be approved for other chronic inflammatory conditions, such as tennis elbow and achilles tendonitis.

If you are suffering from chronic heel pain associated with chronic plantar fasciitis, possibly with heel spur syndrome and have received little relief with at least six months of conservative care, you may be a candidate for the ESWT procedure. Call us to set up an appointment to discuss the possibility of shockwave treatment for your painful heel condition.
