You have been having persistent foot pain for weeks. You visit your WIN Chiropractor to have them check it out. It’s plantar fasciitis!
The chiropractor introduces you to shockwave therapy as a potential solution. Intrigued, you agree to give it a try.
As you sit comfortably, the chiropractor applies the shockwave device to the affected area on your foot.
You feel pulses of energy being delivered deep into the tissues, targeting the root cause of your plantar fasciitis.
With each subsequent shockwave treatment, you notice a significant improvement in your plantar fasciitis.
Your sharp and stabbing pain gradually subsides, allowing you to walk and move with greater ease.
The inflammation begins to decrease, and the tightness in your foot starts to loosen.
You can finally participate in activities that were once out of reach, and your mobility improves.
The plantar fasciitis no longer dominates your thoughts or limits your movements!
What Is Chiropractic Shockwave?
A chiropractic shockwave therapy at our Niagara Falls clinic, an help you address stubborn joint or muscle concerns.
Shockwave breaks down scar tissue, increases blood flow to your area of concern and decreases inflammation.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing in the body.
It treats musculoskeletal conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, and shoulder pain.
During shockwave therapy, a device called a shockwave generator is used to deliver high-energy sound waves to the affected area.
The sound waves increase blood flow to the area, stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, and promote the production of collagen.
These changes are essential for tissue repair and regeneration.
