Relieving Heel Pain in Birdsboro, PA
Heel pain such as a heel spur can stop you in your tracks, especially when your feet start hurting as soon as you wake up in the morning. But Dr. Keating’s shockwave therapy can get you back on your feet – without traditional surgery – faster than you might think.
Nonsurgical shockwave therapy
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a highly effective treatment for chronic plantar fasciitis that requires no incisions and lets you go back to work the next day. Dr. Keating uses acoustic shockwaves to treat chronic, painful conditions of the foot. The word “extracorporeal” means “outside the body.”
Shockwave therapy is probably best-known for its use in the treatment of kidney stones. This is called ESWL, or shockwave lithotripsy. Podiatrists have found that shockwave therapy, when applied appropriately, is beneficial for the treatment of several podiatric conditions. The treatment is noninvasive and performed on an outpatient basis, which means that it does not require surgery or a hospital stay. You can leave the office shortly after your treatment.
