Shockwave Therapy
for Heel Pain

A Non-Surgical Heel Pain Procedure!

With Shockwave Therapy, you don’t have to be out of work; you can walk the same day. Compared to invasive or endoscopic surgery, Shockwave Therapy has fewer side effects and much shorter recovery time with patients returning to light activities within a day and normal activities at approximately four weeks. Surgical patients typically require casting and may be off work for approximately six to eight weeks; with Shockwave you walk out of the office directly after the treatment!

When you have chronic pain everything you do in your life is affected. Having daily pain is no way to live, especially when the pain is avoidable.

Everything you need to know when considering heel pain surgery. For people who have heel pain and want to understand how to heal it. Medical Term: plantar fasciitis.

Shockwave Heel-Pain Therapy: The Basics
  • Shockwave therapy is a cutting edge, non-invasive, non-pharmacological, FDA-approved solution for the treatment of chronic foot, heel, and ankle pain.
  • The shock wave therapy device delivers a mild “micropulse” of energy to the treatment area.
  • his energy initiates a healing response by the body for the treated area, resulting in increased delivery of nutrients that promotes soft-tissue recovery while relieving foot and heel pain as well.
  • Side effects (minor soreness) are minimal, especially when compared to other heel pain treatment options.

What Is a Typical Radial Shockwave Therapy Heel Pain Treatment Session Like?

Doctors Hani H. Saeed, D.P.M., and Varun Chopra, DPM administer RSWT treatments, meaning our heel pain patients get the combined benefit of this innovative treatment technology and their extensive podiatric/foot care experience.

Those suffering from heel pain are directed to sit comfortably in our exam room treatment chairs while the doctors use the RSWT device. Much like a traditional ultrasound machine, these small, wand-like instruments are pressed against the painful areas of the foot, with the doctor describing what is happening (and why) and answering your questions during the session.
A typical RSWT treatment session is short, lasting about five minutes from treatment start to end (please note that treatment plans and session frequencies depend on your specific condition and are discussed by the doctor and patient during a scheduled office visit).

“The most attractive aspect of shockwave treatment is that it is a non-invasive option for problems that are sometimes challenging to treat.”
