What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a common foot condition that affects millions of people every year. It is characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. This condition can cause pain and discomfort in the heel and foot, especially during activities such as walking or running.
Symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:
- Pain in the heel or bottom of the foot, especially in the morning or after prolonged periods of sitting or standing
- Stiffness or tightness in the foot or calf muscles
- Swelling or redness in the affected area
Plantar fasciitis can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Overuse or repetitive strain on the foot
- Poor footwear or foot alignment
- Flat feet or high arches
- Obesity or weight gain
- Age-related degeneration of the plantar fascia
Treatment Options for Plantar Fasciitis:
The treatment for plantar fasciitis depends on the severity and underlying cause of the condition. In mild cases, conservative treatment options may be effective, such as rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), stretching exercises, and over-the-counter pain medications. However, in more severe cases, more invasive treatments may be necessary, such as corticosteroid injections or surgery.
Shockwave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis:
At Houston Shockwave, we offer a non-invasive and highly effective treatment option for plantar fasciitis using shockwave therapy. Shockwave therapy is a cutting-edge technology that uses high-frequency sound waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and promote tissue regeneration.
During a shockwave therapy session, a specialized machine delivers focused shockwaves directly to the affected area. The shockwaves penetrate deep into the tissue, breaking up scar tissue and calcifications, and increasing blood flow to the area. This stimulates the production of new collagen and other healing factors, leading to improved tissue quality and reduced pain and inflammation.
Shockwave therapy for plantar fasciitis is a safe and effective alternative to more invasive treatments, with no downtime or recovery period. Patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately after treatment, and most experience significant pain relief and improved function within a few days.
