Scarring or inflammation of the plantar fascia are directly related to calcium deposit on the heel bone’s underside (heel spur) (plantar fasciitis). Patients’ daily activities are restricted by either one of the indications alone or both together. Shockwave simultaneously addresses both issues. In up to 88% of patients, acoustic waves are to blame for quick healing, the ability to resume normal activities, and long-lasting effects.
Directly beneath the skin on the bottom of your foot, there is a long, thin ligament called the plantar fascia. It supports the foot arch and joins the heel to the forefoot of your foot. The plantar fascia is made to withstand the high strains and stresses that walking, running, and other activities like playing sports place on our feet. However, excessive pressure can occasionally cause tissue damage or tearing. Inflammation, the body’s normal response to injury, causes the heel pain and stiffness of plantar fasciitis. Most of the time, plantar fasciitis appears for no apparent reason.
Pain near the heel on the bottom of the foot.
Pain when getting out of bed in the morning or following a prolonged period of rest, such as following a long car ride. After walking for a few minutes, the discomfort goes away.
Greater pain after exercise or activity (rather than during).
