Extracorporeal shockwave therapy, or ESWT, is a gentle, non-invasive, and effective treatment for painful and chronic soft tissue conditions such as heel pain and achilles tendinopathy. Many podiatric clinics have not made the important investment in EWST technology, but at Langmore Podiatry we feel that the skillful implementation of shockwave as part of a comprehensive treatment approach can be critical to achieving the best outcome for our patients.
What is ESWT?
Developed from technology used in the treatment of kidney stones, ESWT has been widely used in Europe and North America for more than 10 years. Based on high-energy radial soundwaves generated through the specifically designed probe, the unit delivers high-energy shockwaves into the underlying tissues. This has been clinically proven to increase vascular flow, improve healing and release tight bands of muscle, or trigger points.
How ESWT Might Help You
The application of ESWT to soft tissue pathologies has been indicated in the assistance of pain management and to accelerate healing. The most common conditions in the lower limb treated with clinically proven success include:
Plantar fasciitis/heel pain
Patellofemoral pain syndrome (anterior knee pain)
Illiotibial ban syndrome
