Shockwave Therapy

If you’re suffering from chronic heel pain, one of the options available to you is shockwave therapy. It’s important that you explore all treatment options available to you. When choosing a podiatrist who can help you achieve comfort and relief in the Lake Tahoe, California area, give consideration to Patricia L. Ferraro, D.P.M. of Lake Tahoe Podiatry.

Understanding Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy or ESWT, is regarded as a gentle, non-surgical way to reduce or relieve pain in the heel in a similar way to how physicians can reduce kidney stones without involving surgery. The procedure involves the use of high pressure shock waves that travel into and through the skin, stimulating the natural healing process in the skin using ultrasonic waves. Although not everybody is a candidate for this type of treatment, it will be well worth your time to see if you are a candidate. Working with a professional podiatrist is the first step to finding out if this procedure will work for you. Do not hesitate to find out if this is the right procedure to meet your needs and help give you some relief from your pain.
