Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Laser Therapy?

Shockwave laser foot therapy is the most advanced and highly effective, non invasive treatment option for many foot and lower limb related issues. The treatment relieves pain by producing an analgesic effect in the treatment area. The proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation, and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals making it a great treatment option plantar fasciitis and other lower limb/foot condition.

What Disorders can be Treated?

  • Forefoot and toe pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Heel pain
  • Achilles Pain
  • Arch and ankle pain
  • Calf and leg pain
  • Shin splints

What Are the Expected Results?

The beneficial effects of Shockwave therapy are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free or have significant pain reduction.

Are There Any Possible Complications?

This non-invasive treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases, patients may experience mild discomfort during treatment and slightly after treatment. We recommend if you have a pacemaker or other severe heart conditions that a different treatment option is used to treat you foot and lower limb pain, which we would recommend our Therapeutic Laser.

What is the Duration of the Treatment and How Many Do I Need?

Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the disorder. Your first treatment will take longer as our Podortho Foot Specialist will perform a full assessment prior to performing the shockwave. Generally, 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals, however for more severe cases 5 treatments may be necessary.
