People who live with plantar fascia problems know all about chronic pain. When the plantar fascia is overused, it can cause tears along the sole of the foot where the plantar fascia is. Many people who suffer from this type of injury go through many types of treatments to help alleviate the pain. Some people change shoes, use a cast, take over the counter pain medication or employ custom orthotics to help their plantar fascia injury. Even these conventional options do not always work. However, there is an alternative option for those who suffer from plantar fascia pain and that is known as shockwave therapy.

Extracorporeal shock wave treatment is an outpatient procedure. A medical device uses shock waves to help relieve the chronic pain that is felt in the foot. The podiatrist will take a dome that is filled with water and place it against the heel so that shock waves pass through it. These shockwaves help to increase the blood flow in the heel and the foot and help trigger the healing process. This in turn allows for the inflammation and pain to subside.

The FDA approves a large variety of devices for his type of procedure. Some include OssaTron, The Epos Ultra and The Orbasone Pain Relief System. There are also FDA approved devices but a podiatrist will choose the one that they like best. All machines meet basic standards.

People who have bleeding disorders, who take blood-thinning medication, or who are pregnant should not undergo shockwave therapy. Complications can occur and include mild neurological symptoms and tears in the tissue of the bottom of the foot.
