WHAT IS PLANTAR FASCIITIS?
Do you have Plantar fasciitis?
Shockwave Therapy is a New Tool in the Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis
At ChiroPlus we combine traditional treatments like dry needling, manipulation, stretch and strengthening exercises with the latest technology.
Shockwave Therapy works by initiating repair of damaged tissue.
How does it work?
Shockwave Therapy uses an acoustic pressure wave to:
• Disrupt the affected tissue
• Stimulate collagen synthesis
• Enhance blood supply
• Flush out pain-transmitting substances
Safer, cheaper and easier than surgery
Shockwave Therapy carries far less risk than invasive procedures such as surgery. It can therefore be a safe, cost effective approach to the treatment of stubborn, persistent, chronic plantar fasciitis and pain under the foot.
Backed by scientific research
Studies in 2009 and 2013 both found progressive, ongoing improvement in pain and function following just 4-5 shockwave treatments of plantar fasciitis. Symptoms continued improving further up to a year after treatment.
We combine the best approaches
At ChiroPlus we offer a comprehensive solution for plantar fasciitis by combining traditional therapies, including stretch and strengthening, taping, and joint mobilisation, with the latest Shockwave Therapy technology. This ensures that we not only get you out of pain quickly, but keep you pain free for longer.
