ESWT technology is derived from lithotripsy, a technique that has been in use for approximately 20 years to disintegrate kidney stones without the use of invasive surgery.
This cutting-edge technology delivers pneumatically generated, high pressure acoustic shockwaves which travel through the skin to the affected area if the body eliminating irritating calcium deposits that cause pain as well as stimulating the bodies healing process.
What is Heel pain?
Often people misdiagnose “heel pain” for other conditions that occur around the heel. As plantar fasciitis has become more prevalent in our society, so to the misdiagnosis of other conditions that relate to the heel of the foot.
These conditions include nerve compression, vascular issues, stress fractures and heel spurs. Those conditions require a very different assessment and treatment.

As we get older, tissues become less flexible and the plantar fasciitis can become strained from simply walking a full day with non supporting, flat shoes.
ESWT Shockwave Therapy – How it can help
By using radical shockwaves (high energy acoustic waves), which are transmitted through the skin and spread radially (spherically) into the body of the foot. The body responds with increased metabolic activity around the site of the pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process.
Treatment only takes 10-15 minutes, and the pain is noticeably reduced in a few days.
AMA Podiatry first locates the pain through palpitation or ultra sound.
Your Podiatrist will apply contact gel in the treatment area, and using the dolocast applicator deliver a gentle shockwave to the treatment area.
ESWT has been used by AMA Podiatry for the successful treatment in sports medicine and is used in accredited medicine worldwide. Backed by FDA and a multitude of clinical studies.
