What You Need To Know About Radial Shockwave Therapy

Radial Shockwave Therapy has been used for decades to treat bone, tendon, muscle, and ligament pain. In podiatry, Radial Shockwave Therapy is used to treat:

  • Heel pain associated with heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis pain
  • Pain due to Achilles tendonitis
  • Recovery from an injury or accident involving your feet or ankles
  • Neuroma Pain¬†
  • Burning and Painful Neuropathy

Radial Shockwave Therapy can provide many important benefits. Consider that shockwave therapy is:

  • Easy, with little to no downtime
  • Tolerable for most, with no need for anesthetic or injections
  • Fast, with each treatment taking 15 minutes or less
  • Convenient, with treatment on an outpatient basis and no hospital stay

Radial Shockwave Therapy sends small acoustic waves to damaged areas. These waves penetrate tissue, promoting tissue repair. During your shockwave therapy treatment, you will feel a slight pressure from the shockwave pulses for about 5 to 7 minutes. Some patients experience pain relief almost immediately, however, most patients achieve maximum benefits after 8 to 12 treatments.

If you are suffering from heel pain, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, painful neuropathy, neuromas, or any type of foot pain, Radial Shockwave Therapy may help you and your feet feel their very best.
