  • SHOCKWAVE THERAPY AND CUSTOM ORTHOTIC THERAPY ARE THE FOOT SPECIALIST'S BEST WEAPONS AGAINST PLANTAR FASCIITIS

 

PLANTAR FASCIITIS, ARCH PAIN AND HEEL PAIN IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON CONDITIONS THAT WE TREAT IN OUR FOOT CLINIC.  IT CAN ALSO BE ONE OF THE TRICKIEST CONDITIONS TO TREAT AND IS REQUIRES THE FULL COOPERATION OF THE PATIENT IN ORDER TO RESOLVE IT.  IF THE PATIENT IS NOT WILLING TO INVEST THEIR TIME DOING THEIR HOME THERAPY SUCH AS APPLYING ICE, STRETCHING, EXERCISES, REST AND WEARING THEIR NEW ORTHOTICS PROPERLY IN THE CORRECT FOOT WEAR, SUCCESS MAY NOT BE AN OPTION.

ONCE THE CONDITION HAS BEEN PROPERLY DETERMINED, USUALLY IMPROPER FOOT MECHANICS AS WELL AS OVERUSE AND STRESS ARE THE MAIN CAUSES OF THE CONDITION.  USUALLY CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE DISPENSED TO THE PATIENT AS WELL A COMPLETE ARAY IMMEDIATELY OF PHYSICAL THERAPY SUCH AS LASER, LOW VOLT, INTERFERENTIAL, ULTRASOUND ARE IMPLEMENTED.  WE ALSO USE SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WHICH IS EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE AS WELL AS BEING VIRTUALLY PAIN-FREE AND THE PATIENT CAN WALK OUT OF THE CLINIC RIGHT AFTER THE TREATMENT WITH NO DISCOMFORT.
