Plantar Fasciitis Keeping You Off Your Feet? Sonocur Shockwave Therapy Could Be The Solution
With spring upon us, it’s time to get back outside and enjoy our favourite sport. Be it running, volleyball, soccer, or golf – or all of them – exercising pain-free isn’t too much to ask. But what if you suffer from plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the tissues at the bottom of the foot. These tissues connect the heel bone to the toes. It occurs when those tissues are overused (overstretched), causing the muscles to tighten and become quite painful. This is often impacts the most seasoned long-distance runners. Another cause of plantar fasciitis is sudden weight gain (which puts added pressure on the tissues). The pain is often constant, and can even make the simplest tasks, such as walking, very difficult.
If you think that you may have plantar fasciitis.
there are plantar fasciitis treatments available, including treatment options that don’t involve invasive surgical procedures. Invasive procedures like surgery to remedy plantar fasciitis can keep you off of your feet for weeks. If you suffer from the pain caused by plantar fasciitis, you don’t have to suffer through it. One really great plantar fasciitis treatment is Sonocur shockwave therapy.
What is shockwave therapy? Sonocur shockwave therapy is a high-tech, non-invasive form of treatment delivering low-energy sound waves to the affected area, helping to encourage the growth of new blood vessels and break down scar tissue. The procedure is pain-free, and does not require any anesthesia – just sit back and relax and let the doctor work his or her magic.
A major benefit to electing shockwave therapy as a plantar fasciitis treatment is the amount of time saved. Instead of requiring extensive downtime, this treatment, covered over a period of weeks, affords immediate relief, letting you get back out there right away – no recovery time needed!
Sonocur therapy isn’t just for plantar fasciitis since it works on way more than just feet. Sonocur shockwave therapy can also help with these other conditions: jumper’s knee and runner’s knee, tendonitis (rotator cuff, biceps, quadriceps, Achilles), tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow. Many of these conditions can keep you from the field or the track due to pain caused while trying to partake. Shockwave therapy can get you back out there straight away.
If you are suffering from foot pain, don’t ignore it. Sonocur shockwave therapy is a proven effective plantar fasciitis treatment that will help you get back in the game.
