Shockwave Therapy

Radial Shockwave Therapy is a medical treatment that utilizes ultrasound technology to send high-energy acoustic waves into a target area to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. The evidenced-based results for reduction in pain and tissue healing with this treatment are extensive.

What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

After we diagnose your condition, our podiatrist can determine if shockwave treatment is right for your foot or lower limbs. At the most basic level, Shockwave Therapy treatment stimulates new cell growth, replacing old, weak, or damaged cells.

The Foot Practice podiatrist will apply a high-intensity sound wave to interact with the tissues of your body. The shockwaves – focused ultrasonic energy or radial pressure wave therapy – are applied externally via equipment held against the skin.

These controlled shockwaves will reduce inflammation and pain to restore function. The therapy will have a cascading effect on the relevant tissue, assisting with cellular defences, weakening inflammation, and improving blood circulation.

Does Shockwave Therapy Hurt?

Shockwave Therapy for your foot is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment and will not require the same recovery time associated with surgery. Nor will the treatment put you out of commission.

It is normal to experience some pain or discomfort during a session. Residual swelling and pain may possibly continue for a few days after each session. This actually indicates the therapy is working! Biostimulation occurs in the tissue and swelling is a positive response to the targeted shockwaves.

What Conditions Can Be Treated By Shockwave Therapy?

Here’s how radial shockwave therapy in Singapore can assist with several different foot conditions:

  • Achilles tendonitis. Achilles tendonitis is a chronic injury, where the Achilles tendon – the area above the back of the heel – experiences regular pain, swelling, and tenderness. Radial Shockwave Therapy applied directly to the tissue surrounding the tendon can be an effective treatment for the condition.
  • Morton’s neuroma. Morton’s neuroma is a condition that causes pain between the third and fourth toes. Morton neuroma requires urgent short-term pain relief that can be provided by shockwave therapy.
  • Plantar fasciitis. Lying above the soles of your feet is a web-like tissue that connects the heel and the toes. Plantar fasciitis is when this tissue – the plantar fascia – becomes inflamed, commonly causing pain in the morning or after prolonged periods of sitting or standing.
  • Tibialis posterior tendonitis. The posterior tibial tendon connects your calf muscle to the bones on the inside of your foot. A fall or injury can result in this tendon being torn or inflamed, causing flat-footedness and various pains across the foot, especially after prolonged activity. On top of helping with short-term pain, Shockwave Therapy can assist in rehabilitation, in conjunction with exercises from our podiatrist to help the foot heal.

If you are already experiencing pain from any of the foot conditions above, make an appointment with The Foot Practice today for the targeted pain relief and healing benefits of radial shockwave treatment.
