Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) • ESWT successfully treats chronic heel pain, which is associated with Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis. • ESWT is an effective alternative to surgery. • ESWT produces an “acute or new” injury to treat a “chronic or persistent” condition. The therapy triggers the body’s own repair mechanisms resulting in increased blood flow and the formation of new blood vessels, which is called “Neovascularization”. • ESWT successfully reduces the chronically inflamed tissue structures associated with heel pain. This makes it crucial that you do not take anti-inflammatory medication as it will reverse the action of the ESWT. Cosamin ASU is a natural product which can act as an anti-inflammatory and will not reverse the action of the ESWT and is approved to help with pain. • There have been numerous studies over the last 15 years showing the effectiveness of ESWT as a valuable, non-surgical treatment for chronic heel pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis.
