Since 1998, podiatrists have effectively employed shockwave therapy to treat various foot conditions, establishing it as a standard of care modality. This non-invasive, drug-free solution addresses a range of chronic issues. When paired with Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT), shockwave therapy offers a comprehensive strategy for healing and rehabilitation, enabling podiatrists to provide efficient and safe treatments to patients.

Foot and Heel Pain

Shockwave therapy offers podiatrists a unique non-invasive and drug-free treatment for many chronic conditions, particularly those affecting tendons and their insertions on bone. Storz shockwave physical therapy equipment is ideal for treating conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, bursitis, bunions and hammer toe, metatarsalgia, shin splints, heel spurs, Morton’s neuroma and foot, ankle fracture non-unions and stress fractures.

Shockwave Benefits

Shockwave therapy  is a proven non-surgical option for treating chronic conditions without exposing patients to known risks such as infection, nerve entrapment, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). Research with our device demonstrates a success rate of 84% for heel pain.

The Healing Process

Shockwave technology causes mechanical pressure and tension forces on the tissue, increasing cell membrane permeability thereby increasing microscopic circulation, promoting healing and results in the dissolution of calcific deposits. Shockwave therapy stimulates osteoblasts and fibroblasts to heal damaged tissue and bone, accelerating the healing process without the need for surgery or medication. Transmission of pain can be diminished through inhibition of nociceptors. Studies show significant and clinically relevant superiority of extracorporeal shockwave therapy compared with the placebo, in cases of plantar fasciitis.
