Extracorporeal Shockwave Treatment

If you suffer from chronic heel pain or heel pain that has been unresponsive to other treatments, there is a non-surgical treatment that was recently approved by the FDA. ESWT (extracorporeal shockwave treatment) uses strong focused sound energy that triggers the body's natural healing mechanism. This treatment method is safe, effective and requires a very short recovery period compared to older surgical techniques. ESWT is performed in the office and requires only a local anesthetic.
