Written By Kabel Chiropractic on August 9, 2019

Lady running Do you have pain in your feet that won’t go away?

If you suffer from plantar fasciitis or tendonitis and don't know where to turn, the professionals at Kabel Chiropractic will help you by utilizing a therapy procedure called Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy.

Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms

If you suffer from chronic plantar fasciitis, you may experience:

  • Heel Pain or Swelling

  • Pain after long periods of standing or walking

  • Pain predominately in the morning time upon awaking

What is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy is a non-invasive method for treating your plantar fasciitis and tendonitis.

By sending shock waves to certain places on the body, ESWT causes a form of microtrauma (small tears) to the muscles or tendons in the body. When microtrauma happens, the body naturally begins a healing process that, in turn, relieves the pain in your problem area.

There are two types of ESWT available to you for plantar fasciitis pain management:

  • Low-Energy Shocks: Easily administered to patients in three or four treatments, this form of shock therapy is generally pain-free.

  • High-Energy Shocks: These shocks should only be administered in one treatment at a time since the pain level is quite high. You may consider undergoing anesthesia before treatment.
