Radial-Focused Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (rESWT)
Radial-Focused Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is Modern Podiatry's most Innovative and Advanced Non-invasive treatment for Heel Pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Neuromas, and Metatarsalgia.
Clinically proven to safely and effectively relieve pain and restore mobility, rESWT is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries including sprains and strains. High-pressure energy in the form of acoustic waves or pulses is delivered to the painful area of the foot or ankle. The high-level energy interacts with the damaged tissues promoting repair and regeneration of healthy tissue.
The typical treatment plan consists of 3-6 treatments spaced 1 week apart. The treatment is non-invasive, performed right in our office without the need for local anesthesia and produces an 80% success rate. Each treatment visit is about ten minutes, and you are able to wear your normal shoes and continue with normal daily activities right away. Some patients report pain relief after the first treatment. However, the effects are most noticeable after the second or third treatment. Patients are encouraged to complete the entire course of therapy as recommended by the doctor.
WITHOUT ANY INJECTIONS, MEDICATIONS OR INVASIVE PROCEDURES, rESWT is the perfect treatment for the relief of your foot and ankle pain. If you or someone you know is suffering from Heel, Foot or Ankle Pain Dr. Verzub can help get you back to your active lifestyle quickly and comfortably.
