What is ESWT?

You Simply Do Not Have to Suffer From Heel Pain Any Longer

I want to let you know about a state-of-the-art, painless procedure that we offer at East Penn Foot and Ankle Associates to treat heel pain. It is called Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, or ESWT. With the new treatments we offer, like ESWT, there is simply no reason for you to suffer from unnecessary heel pain any longer.

 There Are New Procedures That Can Help!

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, or ESWT, is a state-of-the-art option for people who suffer from chronic heel pain. It is a non-invasive procedure using high energy sound waves that takes no longer than 20 minutes and shows results very quickly.

The basic idea behind ESWT is very simple. The foot is placed on a machine which sends about 3,600 sound shock waves to the area where the plantar fascia (the connective tissue) is inflamed and hurting. These waves are able to break down and get rid of bad tissue and allow healthy tissue to take its place. It helps bring new blood vessels to the area, and then breaks up the scar tissue which essentially creates a healing process.

Heel Pain Doesn’t Have to Slow You Down.

Shock wave therapy does not hinder your everyday activities. You will still be able to go on like before without the use of crutches or a cast. There is no down time required; the only thing that is required, in fact, is stretching exercises which we will give you to do.

Over the span of about 2 to 3 months your heel will continue to heal. Most patients will see results almost immediately and by the end of the 3 months will have no pain left.

Please make your very next step on your 75,000 mile journey a visit to our office so that we can discuss your heel pain symptoms and find the right treatment for you.

When you are suffering from heel pain you are suffering needlessly. If you or someone you love is experiencing any pain or discomfort in your heels, please give us a call at 610-432-9593 and make an appointment to come in to see us. We will take the time to listen to you, understand your concerns, and then offer the best treatment options.

Dedicated to your health,
