Foot pain can be a debilitating condition that affects your patients ability to move and engage in daily activities. Many treatment options are available for foot pain, including medications, physical therapy, and surgery. However, radial shock wave therapy has been shown in studies to help.
Radial shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate healing in the affected area. It has been used to treat a wide range of conditions, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and heel spurs, which are common causes of foot pain.
Is DolorClast Radial Shock Wave Therapy Safe?
Radial shock wave therapy is typically performed on an outpatient basis and does not require anesthesia. One of the main advantages of radial shock wave therapy is that it is non-invasive, meaning that it does not require surgery or medication. This reduces the risk of complications and side effects, making it a safe option for many patients.
During the procedure, a handheld device is used to deliver the shock waves to the affected area. The shock waves cause microtrauma to the tissues, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. The increased blood flow to the area also helps to reduce inflammation and pain.
Radial Shock Wave Therapy has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of foot conditions. A study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research found that radial shock wave therapy was effective in treating plantar fasciitis, with 77.5% of patients experiencing significant pain reduction after the treatment.
Another study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research found that radial shock wave therapy was effective in treating Achilles tendonitis, with 70% of patients reporting a significant improvement in pain and function.
