Oh My Aching FeetJune 05, 2023
Today I’m going to address the use of shockwave therapy for foot pain. I will tell you that in my 17 years of practice I have not seen anything quite so effective at helping people get rid of their ongoing foot pain. We have many patients who have dealt with achy feet for years and years who are reporting relief and even complete resolution from their chronic pain. In fact, many of them are returning to activities such as skiing, gardening, walking the dog, hiking and others that they have had to avoid for years as a result of their pain.

Shockwave TherapyFebruary 08, 2023
Shockwave therapy is much like a rock being thrown into a calm, still lake. Once that rock hits the water, waves ripple out, ultimately affecting a much larger area. With shockwave, high-energy acoustic waves are generated and in doing so, tell the body to start repairing chronic injuries by getting rid of old, weak, or damaged cells and replacing them with new, healthy cells. It does this by breaking up calcifications, releasing growth factors, and increasing blood circulation to the injured area.
