EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCKWAVE THERAPY, AND SPORT'S INJURY
Your feet can sustain various injuries during sports. Pain in the foot can reduce peak performance in an athlete. Extracorporeal Shockwave Treatment works by passing low-energy acoustic wave pulsations to the site of injury. At Aurora Family Foot Clinic, we use radial shockwave therapy which penetrates to the anatomical depth of tendons and ligaments, making it ideal for treating Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis injuries of the foot. The mechanical sound waves produce a cavitation effect in the tissues to increase blood flow to the area of concern and stimulates the body’s healing process, cell regeneration, and decreasing local factors which cause pain.
