In this blog, Dr. Supreet Shah explains how shock therapy works and how it can help to treat Plantar Fasciitis.

Shockwave therapy is a medical device that allows chiropractors to carry high-energy sound waves to painful spots and muscular-skeletal tissue. 

Plantar fasciitis is something that an individual might describe as the pain at the bottom of the foot, specifically the heel. Heel experiences this sharp pain at intermittent times, mostly felt in the early mornings, first steps out of bed, and after walking or running long distances or being on your foot for long periods of time. 

It is that fibrous tissue at the bottom of the heel that causes somebody pain. Shockwave therapy is used to emit sound waves deep into those tendons and ligaments to help break up scar tissue and ease the pain and the tension, on Plantar fasciitis. Shockwave therapy greatly improves mobility and helps to eliminate the pain more permanently.
