Healing Heel Pain Goes High-Tech

No doubt you’ve heard about the flurry of high-tech solutions touted for eradicating wrinkles. Well, several similar ground-breaking discoveries are also now being used to eliminate heel pain.

Here at Central Massachusetts Podiatry we’re committed to offering the latest, innovative and effective treatments, especially those that are non-invasive or only minimally-invasive.

To that end, our patients are enjoying amazing relief from heel pain caused by a wide-range of issues (Achilles tendinitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis and more) from three new high-tech treatments. Here’s a quick overview:

• Shockwave therapy, formally known as extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) Shockwave therapy, is a revolutionary, non-surgical treatment in which our doctors direct low-frequency sound waves to the injured heel. This stimulate the metabolic process, increasing blood flow and activating the body’s natural healing process. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the first 15-minute treatment, although optimum results typically require up to four sessions. The procedure eliminates pain and restores total mobility. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.
