Kidney Stone Technology Is Being Used to Treat Chronic Heel Pain Sufferers
Extracorpeal Shockwave Therapy, or ESWT, is an FDA approved treatment for tendinopathies like Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles’ Tendonitis. The technology was derived from a therapy known as lithotripsy. Lithotripsy uses similar shockwaves to pulverize kidney stones.
If you suffer from chronic heel pain, ESWT may be the answer you’re looking for. It is performed in the office, without the need for anesthesia, by one of our foot and ankle specialists.
