Woman Receives Shockwave Therapy for Bunion Pain

hammertoe4Floria Antell was suffering from bunion pain and while her podiatrist recommended she had surgery, Antell did not want to miss out on her Pilate’s classes and walking her dog. The seventy-six year old decided to get another opinion and received anti-inflammatory and shockwave therapy treatment. After being healed within six months Antell recalled being thankful for not having to stay bedridden and learned how to take better care of her feet. When faced with foot pain many believe that surgery would be the best way to heal, but there are nonsurgical methods such as shockwave therapy available to incorporate healing.

Shockwave therapy is a treatment commonly used to treat various injuries and conditions, particularly plantar fasciitis in the feet. To learn more, consult with Dr. Thomas J. Larson Jr. of Larson Foot Clinic, P.C. Our doctor will provide you with quality foot and ankle information and treatment.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a new treatment option designed to treat bone conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, and others. Shockwave therapy uses high intensity sound waves that are directed to the affected tissues of the body with pinpoint accuracy. The effects are very beneficial, leading to a production of collagen fibers, eliminating inflammation.

Who Benefits from Shockwave?

Shockwave is recommended for patients suffering from heel pain and associated problems. Heel pain is a common condition which can be caused by obesity, overexertion, and spending a substantial amount of time on hard floors with your feet exposed and unsupported.

Fast and Easy

The therapy is actually a simple process that can leave patients feeling better the very next day. Shockwave therapy is not as dramatic as it sounds. It enables more blood flow to effected areas, attacking the source of the problem so treatment lasts for a long time.

Treatment & Recovery Time

Shockwave treatment will enable your feet to recover quickly. This is especially important since surgery is not required. It is cost effective and does not require the use of anesthesia. This treatment is a better option to surgery, since it is proven safe.
