Foot Pain Milwaukee Area Specialists Offer Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
Milwaukee Foot Specialists Provide Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy to Treat Severe or Chronic Heel Pain
Great Midwest Foot and Ankle’s Milwaukee podiatrist offers Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT). ESWT is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis. The shockwaves from our heel pain treatment trigger repair mechanisms which promote advanced healing processes.
Plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis are caused when the tissue covering the heel surface is overworked. A heel can be overworked due to many factors including everything from a change in athletic regimen to standing on a hard surface for extended increments of time. Our Milwaukee foot specialists use Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy to treat heel pain due to inflammation, fibrosis and decreased vascularization in an overworked heel.
Our foot pain Milwaukee area specialists recommend Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for chronic cases of plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. Prior to receiving ESWT treatment, we suggest trying conventional methods like rest and shoe inserts to alleviate pain. If have been suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis for more than 6 months and are unable to relieve pain with conventional methods, we recommend ESWT. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is an excellent surgical alternative with fewer side effects and a shorter recovery time. When you receive ESWT, you may notice minor skin bruising, minor pain, swelling or other side effects which will last only a few short days.
