What Causes Foot and Heel Pain?... And How Can Shockwave Therapy Help?

If you’ve got foot and ankle pain, stiffness or an ache – it’s very tempting to think that it’s nothing, that it will go away on its own.

Or, you might pass it off as having just over done it, or that it’s just a “ache” or a bit of stiffness that “everyone” your age suffers from…

There’s no obvious reason why it happened – but it doesn’t seem to be shifting and its been there a good while now.

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – and we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, long term foot and ankle pain is THE most common problems that we regularly see at We Fix Feet.

The We Fix Feet Shockwave Therapy Programme

Step 1 - Comprehensive Foot & Ankle Examination

Our experienced and knowledgeable practitioners will examine :

  • Your foot and ankle range of movement

  • Your joint alignment

  • The biomechanics of the way your walk

  • Your muscle strength and tone

To identify exactly what is causing your Plantar Fasciitis

Step 2 -  Latest Technology for Foot Pain Treatment

The team at We Fix Feet use the latest medical research and technology to produce a bespoke treatment plan, which may include shockwave therapy to get you back fit and active doing all the things that your foot and ankle pain is stopping you from doing.

Step 3 - Recovery

Each treatment aims to gently and progressively get your foot and ankle moving again without pain, as quickly as possible, to allow you to get back to normal and start doing the things you love.

We will give you a structured rehabilitation exercise program, to help break the cycle and prevent the problem from returning.

Frequently Asked Questions About Shockwave Therapy

What is shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing in injured tissues. It's commonly used to treat conditions like plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, and certain musculoskeletal disorders.

How does shockwave therapy work?

Shockwave therapy works by delivering high-energy acoustic waves to the affected area. These waves create microtrauma in the tissue, which triggers the body's natural healing response, increasing blood flow, and stimulating the formation of new blood vessels and tissue regeneration.

Is shockwave therapy painful?

Discomfort levels can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or a sensation similar to getting "tapped" during the procedure, but it's generally well-tolerated. Your healthcare provider can adjust the intensity of the treatment to minimise discomfort.

How long does a shockwave therapy session take?

A typical shockwave therapy session lasts about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the specific condition being addressed. Multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results, usually spaced out over several weeks.

What conditions can be treated with shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is commonly used to treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, shoulder tendinitis, hip pain, and chronic non-healing wounds.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with shockwave therapy?

While shockwave therapy is generally safe, some patients may experience temporary soreness, redness, or bruising at the treatment site. Rarely, more serious side effects such as skin damage or nerve injury can occur. It's important to discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.

How soon can I expect to see results from shockwave therapy?

Results can vary depending on the individual and the condition being treated. Some patients may experience improvement after just one session, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired outcome. It's important to follow your healthcare provider's recommendations for the best chance of success.

Who is a good candidate for shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy may be a suitable treatment option for individuals who have not responded to conservative treatments such as rest, ice, physical therapy, or medication. However, it's not recommended for everyone, and certain contraindications may apply. Your healthcare provider can assess whether shockwave therapy is appropriate for your condition.

Please note that these FAQs provide general information and should not replace personalised advice from a qualified healthcare professional. It is important to consult with a trusted podiatrist to assess your individual case and determine the most suitable treatment plan for your foot and ankle pain.
