Shockwaves therapy (also known as ESWT) are loud sound waves that create ‘shocks’ -vibrations and cause controlled injury to the tissue around the heel and plantar fascia. The body responds by speeding it’s natural healing ability and stimulating a repair process

Each session takes about 15 minutes. Patients experience some discomfort during the shockwave therapy and there may be slight redness on the skin after treatment. More rarely, the heel pain becomes slightly worse after treatment before getting better.
