 Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy


What makes ESWT unique is that it is one of the very few technologies in any field of medicine that seems to be able to jump start the healing process in chronic, non-healing injuries and move them back into the acute phase of healing.

low energy ESWT

 Expect to spend about 10 minutes getting   the treatment, no anesthesia is required but for some patients the initial treatment can be uncomfortable. Local anesthesia can be administered in such cases, but only 1% of our patients requires such. If you are in the 1% usually by the third treatment your condition (Plantar Fasciitis or Achilles Tendonitis) would have improved enough to not require anymore anesthesia. The low ESWT procedure causes anesthesia via negative feedback and desensitize the treated area. Remember that 5 treatments are required for the low energy at 4-7 days apart.

high energy ESWT
A local / regional anesthesia will be administered then after 5 minutes the procedure is started. Expect 15-20 minutes for treatment but you will be totally anesthetized. Usually one treatment is all that is needed, but on a rare occasion a second application would be required at 6 months.



ESWT shockwave therapy



What is ESWT?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (or ESWT) is a revolutionary technology that uses shockwaves to treat chronic, painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system.

A shockwave is an intense, but very short energy wave traveling 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.

Heel pain is a very common foot problem. Heel pain usually builds up gradually and gets worse over time. The pain is often severe and occurs when you place weight on your heel. Luckily, it is one of the easiest conditions to treat, if caught early. When ignored, the pain may become chronic and can get worse.
