Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment option for people that are suffering from heel pain and other chronic orthopaedic issues. With the therapeutic use of high intensity sound waves, this treatment option can help those that are suffering from the following afflictions:

·      Heel pain due to plantar fasciitis or heel spur syndrome

·      Achilles tendinitis

·      Non-healing fractures of the foot (and other parts of the body)

·      Jumpers knee (infrapatellar tendonitis)

·      Tennis elbow or golfer's elbow

·      Calcific tendonitis of the shoulder

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is recommended for those who have had heel pain for at least three months, and have already been treated with at least two or three conservative treatment options. Some of these conservative treatment options include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pills, supportive tapings or strappings, orthotics, cortisone injections, physiotherapy, below knee casting, and night splints.
