Copy of Shockwave Therapy for the manangement of Plantar Fasciitis

If you're suffering from Heel Pain it may be that you have Plantar Fasciitis. You may have also googled it to see what is the best way to treat it. Well, I hope you will find my blog useful because I use a variey of ways to treat this painful condition.  What's new at my clinic is the use of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy.

Shockwaves are high-enery sound waves which are transmitted to the affected area to accelerate healing. The treatment increases blood flow, decreases localised pain and stimulates cell regeneration - this encourages the body to repair itself. Shockwaves also break down injured tissue and calcifications.

This is a safe treatment which has NICE guidance for a large number of indications but should only be carried out by a qualified therapist.  I am a HCPC registered Podiatrist which means i have high standards to adhere to a Code of Practice. It also means that this treatment is covered by certain health insurance schemes you may have.

So, what are you waitng for?? If you're in pain and your mobility is affected by Plantar Fasciitis then you can book for an initial Biomechanics New Patient assessment  from this link

or call 01562 540 203.

P.S. dont forget to bring atleast another pair of shoes (ones with a bit of room in them) and list of prescription medication to your appointment. 🙂
