Shock wave therapy works by inducing microtrauma to the tissue that is affected by these problems. This microtrauma initiates a healing response by the body. The healing response causes blood vessel formation and increased delivery of nutrients to the affected area. The microtrauma is thought to stimulate a repair process and relieve the symptoms of pain.
It has been a recommended treatment for chronic plantar fasciitis and other lower limb issues particularly in patients unresponsive to conservative treatment.
We use a low-energy form of shock wave treatment in our clinics. Low-energy shock wave treatments are given as a series of three or more treatments. The low-energy shock waves are usually not painful, or mildly painful.
