Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy or ESWT

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has been recommended as an appropriate and effective method in the treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. After 3-6 months, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis become chronic and canalso be known as plantar fasciosis or plantar fasciopathy and Achilles tendonopathy.
  • ESWT is capable of producing sonic waves with a high amplitude which creates energy to reduce calcification, increase the proliferation of growth factors, and increase blood circulation which helps heal degenerative tissue in the heel.
  • We perform ESWT in our office. The treatment does not require anesthetic and lasts about 8 ½ minutes. Three treatments, one week apart, are required for success. Patients can go right back to work, exercise and regular activities immediately following treatment.
  • Cost is $700 total, 2nd additional area is $200.
