SoftWave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis
Updated: May 23
Plantar fasciitis is a prevalent foot condition that can result in pain and discomfort in the arch and heel of your foot. It occurs when the plantar fascia, a thick tissue band running along the bottom of your foot, becomes inflamed and irritated.
Fortunately, SoftWave therapy is a proven and effective treatment for reducing pain and inflammation caused by plantar fasciitis. Our SoftWave therapy is a non-invasive and painless procedure that helps stimulate the body's natural healing process. It is a safe and effective alternative to traditional treatments like surgery, medication, and physical therapy.
Don't let plantar fasciitis disrupt your daily life. At Rock Chiropractic, we offer the latest in shockwave therapy to help you get back on your feet and enjoy your active lifestyle.
Understanding Plantar Fasciitis
The plantar fascia is a thick tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot from the heel bone to the toes. It helps support the arch of the foot and absorb shock while walking or running. When the tissue becomes irritated and inflamed, it can cause pain and discomfort, known as plantar fasciitis. Symptoms of plantar fasciitis include sharp pain in the heel or arch of the foot, stiffness, swelling, and tenderness. Several factors can contribute to its development, such as overuse, age, foot structure, and obesity.
Effective Treatment with SoftWave Therapy
SoftWave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-energy shockwaves to promote healing and reduce inflammation. The therapy is safe and painless, with no downtime or recovery period required. SoftWave therapy has proven to be an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis by reducing pain and inflammation and promoting tissue regeneration.
Traditional Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis
When it comes to treating plantar fasciitis, traditional methods typically include taking a break from physical activity, performing stretching exercises, applying ice to the affected area, and taking over-the-counter pain medication. In more severe cases, doctors may recommend physical therapy or even corticosteroid injections, and surgery may be necessary to relieve pain and improve function.
What is SoftWave Therapy Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis and How Does it Work?
SoftWave Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment option that uses unfocused shockwaves to stimulate the body's natural healing process. The treatment is FDA-approved for musculoskeletal conditions like plantar fasciitis. SoftWave works by delivering unfocused shockwaves to the affected area, which helps to increase blood flow and promote the growth of new blood vessels. This results in a reduction of pain and inflammation and promotes the healing of damaged tissue. Recent studies have shown that SoftWave Therapy can be an effective treatment option for plantar fasciitis. In one study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research, patients who received SoftWave therapy using the OrthoGold 100™ device experienced a significant reduction in pain and improvement in function.
Advantages of SoftWave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis
SoftWave therapy offers several advantages for those suffering from plantar fasciitis. Perhaps most significantly, it is a non-invasive treatment option that does not require incisions, anesthesia, or a prolonged recovery period. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, SoftWave therapy can be performed in a doctor's office or clinic, making it a convenient and accessible treatment option for those who may not be able or willing to undergo more invasive procedures. Treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes and involves no injections or medication.
