Have you tried over the counter treatments or gone to see a GP only to be prescribed pain medications that actually don’t solve your foot pain? You’re not alone. Like thousands of people across the UK, people are tired of spending money to fix their foot pain, but unfortunately, they are left in the same or even worse condition not to mention left out of pocket.
There are no documented complications with ESWT, since no medication, surgery, injections, or anesthesia is involved. Side effects may include tingling, warmth or numbness immediately after their treatment.
A typical session lasts about 15-30 minutes. You will require one session per week for three weeks.
Most patients will notice improvement after the first treatment, however, overall healing continues for 3 months after the last treatment. Success rates with this treatment is approximately 70 – 80%.
ESWT is especially beneficial for patients that have chronic heel pain and have not had much success with traditional therapies such as medications, orthotics, injections or physiotherapy. If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, heel spur syndrome or Achilles tendinitis, you may be a candidate for this treatment.
