Description: 'My left foot started to hurt when I walked,' said Rosemary Smith45-year-old full-time carer from Bankside London Rosemary Smith started feeling shooting pains through her feet, which she thought it had to do with long periods of standing. About eight months later her pain spread to her right foot. Rosemary later learned she had plantar fasciitis.

Rosemary tried switching from high heels, to flatter shoes, painkillers, specialized orthotic insoles, and even steroid injections. But nothing seemed to halt her agonizing foot pain.  Then, Rosemary was referred to shockwave therapy, and she noticed a drastic change after several treatments. “When I got off the bed, my feet felt more comfortable than they had in years,” said Rosemary.

Although shockwave therapy may be an effective treatment for many different types of foot and ankle pain, it is important that you seek the advice of apodiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of New Jersey.  Dr. Slomowitz will examine your injury and work with you to determine if shockwave therapy is the best treatment option for your foot pain.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a new treatment option designed to treat bone conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, and others. This technique is used on patients that do not respond well to physiotherapy. Shockwave therapy uses high intensity sound waves that are directed to the affected tissues of the body with pinpoint accuracy. The effects are very beneficial, leading to a production of collagen fibers, eliminating inflammation.

Who Benefits from Shockwave?

Shockwave is recommended for patients suffering from heel pain and associated problems. Heel pain is a common condition which can be caused by obesity, overexertion, and spending a substantial amount of time on hard floors with your feet exposed and unsupported.
