Plantar Faciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a very painful condition where your heel may hurt, feel hot or swell. The pain is a result of inflammation or microscopic tears of the plantar fascia. The fascia is a thin layer of tough tissue supporting the arch of the foot.

Sometimes people refer to plantar fasciitis as “heel spurs,” but this is not generally accurate, since the heel spurs are a result of plantar fasciitis. Heel spurs are a calcification which forms due to the damage to the fascia.

Often when you have plantar fasciitis, the pain is at its most intense when you first get out of bed. Sometimes it is noticeable at the beginning of an activity and then gets better as the body warms up. Prolonged standing may cause pain, as well.

Severe plantar fasciitis pain can cause loss of time from work and
may lead to partial or total disability. Common surgical procedures used for the treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis may also lead to permanent disability.

The effects of ESWT are best documented in areas of changes in tissue density, such as those where a tendon attaches to a bone (enthesiopathies) and where a bone attaches to a ligament (desmopathies). For this reason, it is very effective for painful connective tissue in the heels. Additionally, ESWT gives new hope by relieving pain, eliminating the risk factors associated with surgery and allowing people to resume their normal lives.

You may have plantar fasciitis if you experience:

  • Foot pain that is very intense in the morning
  • Foot pain that gets sore after sitting
  • Foot pain that keeps you from doing the things you love
  • Burning in the sole of the foot near the heel
  • Tired, achy feet
  • Heel spurs
  • Heel pain after starting a new running, walking or
    exercise routine
  • Pain when you press the site where the fascia meets the
    heel bone

Testimonials

  1. I would like to express my gratitude to Excellence Shock Wave Therapy. My husband initially found your website. I was extremely skeptical, but I was in so much pain and depressed about my lack of physical activity, that I was willing to try one more thing before surgery. The technician was excellent, he talked me through the whole procedure and made sure I was comfortable at all times. My progress has been excellent! At the 8-week point I am virtually pain free! I would highly recommend ESWT to anyone I know. Thanks for putting me back together again.
    - Janice S., Media, PA
  2. This is the first time in 10 years I can walk without pain. It's great to walk again.
    - Myra M., Philadelphia, PA
  3. I can't believe the difference! I had the operation on my other foot and went through a long recovery. This was terrific! I was back to normal very quickly.
    - Rita C., Paulsboro, NJ
  4. From start to finish it was a pleasure! I didn't have to do anything but show up. The tech was awesome. He was so friendly and made me feel very comfortable. The doctor was so caring and pleasant. My pain was constant prior to the procedure. And here it is a few months later and I am PAIN FREE!! I would have never believed this could be. I even recommended my dad for the procedure. Thanks again!!
    - Deborah H., Parlin, NJ
  5. I thought the whole experience was great! Within a matter of days I noticed some pain relief. Now I don't even think about my heel pain, because I have none! I found the Mobile Unit concept awesome. The inside is very comfortable and the setup for the treatment is very different. I have already recommended this treatment to others.
    - Angela R., Newtown Square, PA
  6. I am a state trooper and we need to be physically fit. Prior to ESWT, I tried everything with little or no results. My activity level was low because of the pain. I scheduled ESWT when I had a few days off and followed the post-ESWT instructions. I was back to work as scheduled with no discomfort. I just started running again and I am thrilled to say that my muscles are sore but my heel is not! Thanks to ESWT I am on my way to getting back in shape. Thanks to everyone involved in this process!
    - Danielle M., Dover, DE
  7. My experience with ESWT treatment was great. I had suffered with heel pain for almost a year. Since having the ESWT treatment, I have not had any heel pain! I CAN WALK AGAIN, PAIN FREE! I am so glad I got the ESWT treatment and would recommend it to others.
    - Millie R., Camden, NJ
  8. One of the best medical experiences I have ever had. ESWT worked with me to overcome issues with my insurance carrier and the procedure has me back to running 10-12 miles per week. Thank you so much!!

  12. The ESWT is great, much better and easier than an operation. Operations are always painful and then there is a recuperating period. With the ESWT, you are right on your feet. There is no downtime. It is very recommendable; I am able to walk barefoot on the beach. Thank you.

ESWT made that way of living possible again for me.

  53. I am walking regularly, and am back to work. Thanks for making me pain free! Greal Staff!
    - Bethany J., Andover, NJ
  54. For me this treatment was truly life changing. I'd been limping for 40 years, tired and cranky. I went through an endless parade of orthotics, intermittent cortisone shots and physical therapy. Nothing did much for the pain. Now I can walk! Really walk! I can spend the day in NYC walking around without being in agony. I would recommend this treatment to anyone!
    - Hope R., Rumson, NJ
  55. I just think back on all of the therapies that did not work and ask myself, "Why didn't my other Doctors tell me about ESWT?" ESWT did what they said it would do. My pain is gone!
