Shock Wave Therapy is the high-intensity acoustic shock wave remedy for your feet that many athletes use to treat their injuries. If it is good enough for the best performance athletes in the world, it’s certainly worth a try for the damages that your feet and ankles may have sustained. This therapy helps to give your body’s healing power a shot of rejuvenation. An electrical force transmitted through the skin of your feet will carry a wave of energy throughout the injured part of your foot. It may sound counterintuitive, but the shockwaves will increase inflammation, which will bring a heightened level of blood flow to your feet that will, in turn, allow for a quicker healing process. This therapy can be used to treat muscular complications in your foot since the increased repairing capabilities will allow for drastic and positive results. Shockwave therapy can also be used to treat foot injuries such as tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and other heel damage. There is much relief to be had from this therapy and delaying it could mean unnecessary pain for you!
Treatment for this condition includes:
The level of energy of Shockwave Therapy tailored for different individuals.
Various minor shocks will produce a need for amplified blood flow, allowing much needed healing agents to travel to the injured locations of your feet.
Do not use this therapy if you have numbness or neuropathy since electrical charges can interfere and complicate them further.
Your feet can use the healing power of shockwaves to defeat lingering injuries that don’t seem to be healing with conservative treatments.
