Types of injuries

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition found in the heel of the foot. When the band of tissue on the sole of your foot (fascia) becomes aggravated after repetitive use or due to poor foot posture. A wide range of reasons can cause plantar fasciitis, from a sudden stretching or overuse of the sole of the foot (stepping off a pavement) to being overweight. Flat foot or past ankle injury usually with very tight tense muscles can irritate the tendon in the sole of the foot also causing planter fasciitis

Achilles tendonitis is normally found in the more active type of people. A big change in intensity or volume of training is the biggest cause. People with tight calf muscles and bony spurs on their heel appear prone to the injury too.

Why Shockwave Treatment for feet might work for you

Shock wave treatment is often a preferred choice if the pain is relatively new or the injury is stubbornly persistent but not causing extricating pain (which would suggest an injury with a greater level of severity and a more intrusive and urgent treatment method might be needed).

The treatment works by sending high-energy shock wave impulses to the injured area (in this case the fascia or the achilles). It has been shown to stimulate the healing process in damaged area. Only a few sessions of shock wave are needed for a large improvements. The sessions are short and don’t take up too much time in your day.
