To help patients find relief from their heel pain, Family Foot Health Center is pleased to offer Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy.

    HOWELL, NJ, January 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Heel pain is one of the most common forms of foot pain for adults. The heel bone is the largest bone in the foot and is the part of the foot to contact the ground during walking. There are many heel pain treatments available in Howell from Family Foot Health Center today ranging from rest, stretching and ice compresses, laser therapy, Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) to surgery in some extreme cases.

Many treatments, such as cortisone and anti-inflammatories, provide symptomatic relief, but ESWT provides the opportunity for patients to obtain a long-term cure. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has emerged as an innovative treatment option for patients with chronic heel pain. During this non-invasive procedure, sonic waves are directed at the area of pain using a device similar to what is currently used in nonsurgical treatments of kidney stones. ESWT is prescribed for patients who have experienced plantar fasciitis for an extended period of time and have not benefited from other conservative treatments.

"The first line of treatment for heel pain is always conservative, but when that doesn't provide relief, we offer ESWT. This therapy is non-invasive and only takes about 30 minutes to perform. With ESWT, we want to help you find the relief you need to continue your daily activities without pain," said Dr. Affan Akhtar regarding heel pain treatment in Howell.

With a breakthrough in technology, heel pain can now be treated with EWST, also known as Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy. The brief, non-invasive, procedure lasts about 30 minutes and is performed in the office under local anesthesia. Strong sound waves are directed at and penetrate the heel area to stimulate a healing response by the body. Patients in Howell can enjoy heel pain treatment with ESWT because there is no time lost from work or activity.

Those who are not candidates for Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy include pregnant women and patients who have:
- Neurological foot disease
- Vascular foot disease
- Pacemakers
- People taking medications that interfere with blood clotting
