When is it Time to Consider Shock Wave Therapy for Chronic Heel Pain?
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, often shortened to ESWT, is a great non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option for chronic heel pain.
ESWT uses sound waves to stimulate healing in specific areas of the foot. The procedure is very safe, but there are some risks for complications like there are with every procedure.
However, one of the main benefits is that since the procedure is less invasive, there are fewer potential complications than with more invasive procedures like surgery. The patient is also able to return to activity much more quickly than with surgery.
Shock wave therapy can be considered as a treatment option for chronic heel pain when conservative treatment options have failed to relieve the patient’s foot pain.
This treatment option is likely to be recommended before dry needling or surgery.
