Radial Shockwave Therapy for Ankle Conditions i.e. Plantar fascia

Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy (ESWT) or Radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) is believed to cause a cellular response leading to tissue regeneration. I use this therapy for plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, Achilles insertion, 1st metatarsal joint pain, and tibia/shin pain. Many of my patients are recreational to elite athletes.

Patients and I co-create the best treatment plan. Most patients need at least 3-6 ESWT treatments with 7-10 days between treatment sessions. The procedure does not hurt, has little to no adverse side effects, and is less expensive and less invasive than risky injections. To enhance our results we can also use magnet therapy and/or laser therapy.
