If you’re suffering with heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis, you should contact an experienced, professional podiatrist at a high quality, modern practice like Albany Podiatry to explore Albany shockwave therapy as a possible solution. Shockwave therapy is a great non-invasive alternative to surgery that is worth looking into.
Heel pain, which is typically caused by plantar fasciitis is, is very difficult to deal with. Patients who have heel pain experience some very unpleasant symptoms such as pain on the bottom of the heel, increasing pain over several months, pain that gets worse when rising, especially after sitting or lying for a long period of time. Historically, surgery was the only option for patients who suffered from plantar fasciitis or heel spurs that didn’t respond to non-invasive, conservative treatments. However, today, due to modern advancement in the field of podiatry, Albany shockwave therapy is now available. It is the best option for people who don’t respond to conservative treatment before surgery is considered. For people who have tried everything else and don’t want to have to have an invasive surgical procedure, it could be their answer. Shockwave therapy offers many fantastic benefits to patients. Some of its many advantages are: it’s only short (25-minute) procedure, it’s non-invasive, it has a short recovery time (it only takes zero to a few days to recover from it), it’s less painful than surgery and it has a very high success rate. The shockwave treatment involves using sound waves to break up infected tissues to stimulate the healing process. Shockwave therapy is not available at all podiatry offices. It’s only available at modern, state-of-the-art practices like Albany Podiatry that utilize latest, most advanced technology and equipment.
