Radial Shock Wave Therapy

Radial Shock Wave Therapy for Foot Pain Relief

At PodSquared Podiatry, we understand how foot pain can impact your daily life. Whether you're dealing with chronic conditions, sports injuries, or simply the wear and tear of everyday activities, finding effective and non-invasive treatments is crucial. That's why we offer Radial Shock Wave Therapy, a cutting-edge solution to alleviate foot pain and promote healing.

What is Radial Shock Wave Therapy?

Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT) is a modern and highly effective treatment method that uses pressure waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. This non-surgical and non-invasive approach is particularly beneficial for various foot and ankle conditions.

How Does Radial Shock Wave Therapy Work?

During a Radial Shock Wave Therapy session, high-energy acoustic waves are applied to the affected area. These waves create microtrauma in the tissue, prompting the body to initiate a healing response. This process improves blood circulation, accelerates tissue repair, and helps to break down calcifications or scar tissue.

Conditions Treated with Radial Shock Wave Therapy:

1. Plantar Fasciitis

Radial Shock Wave Therapy has shown remarkable results in treating plantar fasciitis, a common cause of heel pain. By promoting tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation, patients often experience significant relief after just a few sessions.

2. Achilles Tendinitis

For those suffering from Achilles tendinitis, RSWT can target the affected area, stimulating the healing process and providing relief from pain and stiffness.

3. Heel Spurs

Radial Shock Wave Therapy is an excellent option for addressing heel spurs by breaking down calcifications and promoting the natural healing of the tissue.

4. Morton's Neuroma

Patients with Morton's neuroma, a painful condition affecting the ball of the foot, may find relief through Radial Shock Wave Therapy, which targets the affected nerve tissue.

What to Expect During Radial Shock Wave Therapy

Your Initial Consultation:

Before starting Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT), you will have an initial consultation with one of our experienced podiatrists at PodSquared Podiatry. During this consultation, your podiatrist will:

  1. Assess Your Condition: Conduct a thorough examination of your foot or ankle condition to determine if Radial Shock Wave Therapy is the appropriate treatment for you.
  2. Discuss Your Medical History: Review your medical history, including any previous treatments or surgeries, to ensure a comprehensive understanding of your overall health.
  3. Explain the Treatment Process: Provide detailed information about Radial Shock Wave Therapy, including how it works, the expected benefits, and any potential risks or side effects.

The Radial Shock Wave Therapy Session:

Once you and your podiatrist decide that RSWT is the right course of action, you can expect the following during a typical treatment session:

  1. Preparation: You will be comfortably seated or positioned, and the podiatrist will apply a gel to the treatment area to enhance the transmission of shock waves.
  2. Application of Shock Waves: The handheld device, which generates radial shock waves, will be moved over the targeted area. You may feel a pulsating sensation during this process.
  3. Duration: A typical session lasts about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the specific condition being treated.
  4. Discomfort: While the procedure is generally well-tolerated, some patients may experience mild discomfort during the application of shock waves. However, the intensity can be adjusted to ensure your comfort.

Post-Treatment Care:

After the session, your podiatrist may provide guidance on post-treatment care, which may include:

  1. Rest and Activity Modification: Depending on your condition, you may be advised to rest or modify your activities to support the healing process.
  2. Follow-up Appointments: Your podiatrist will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
  3. Additional Treatments: In some cases, a series of RSWT sessions may be recommended for optimal results.

Expected Results:

Patients often experience improvement in symptoms after a few sessions, with the full benefits becoming apparent in the weeks following treatment. However, individual responses may vary, and your podiatrist will closely monitor your progress to ensure the best outcome.
