Dr. A can Perform Heel Surgery in Portland or Salem, Oregon
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation of the Plantar Fascia which is the tissue that connects the toes to the heel bone. This can cause much pain underneath the heel bone and / or the foot arch when walking or standing for a period of time. Sometimes, conventional treatments can be effective, but if this is not the case then extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a great procedure to help you get back on your feet again.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) sends shock waves to the plantar fascia tissue which tells the body to begin the natural healing process and will replace the damaged plantar fascia tissue with healthy new tissue. The ESWT procedure can dramatically reduce or completely remove the symptoms of plantar fasciitis and get your feet working properly again.
Call Podiatrist Dr. A today if you feel ESWT may be a viable solution for you.
