Effective Heel or Tendon pain treatment
Heel or tendon pain can often resolve itself without intervention over time. However, there are treatments that can speed up the process and help break the cycle of a chronic problem.
One of the most effective forms of treatment is extracorporeal shockwave therapy ESWT. Audible, mechanical, low-frequency shockwaves are deployed over the painful area to initiate the healing process.
ESWT therapy for optimal pain relief
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy works best as a part of a treatment plan designed for you. This might include exercises, orthoses, or low-level laser therapy for optimal pain relief.
