If You Have Heel Pain, Relief Is At Hand

Heel pain can be extremely painful and sufferers often have no relief for ongoing pain. Corticosteroid shots can help in some instances, however this is treating the pain and symptoms, not the cause.

10% of the Australian population suffers from heel pain – plantar fasciitis/faciosis or Achilles tendinitis – at some stage during their life. If you're one of these people you know the first few steps of the day can be agonising and after walking long distances, your heels can ache profoundly.  If you are on your feet all day you know the pain that can result.

We have a comprehensive assessment and screening process for heel pain sufferers here at Bounce Physiotherapy. One of our treatment options is Shockwave therapy or Radial Pressure Wave Therapy. Combined with our comprehensive assessment and treatment approach we ensure you get the treatment that's right for you. We understand that each person is different, and each condition requires a different approach.

What is Radial Pressure Wave Therapy and How Does It Work? 

Shockwave is a modern clinic-based version of the large and powerful shockwave machines used in hospitals for breaking up kidney stones. Radial pressure waves are less powerful but extremely effective in reducing pain and promoting tendon healing.

RPW involves the application of short, frequent, and high intensity bursts of mechanical or acoustic energy (in the form of a shockwave) into soft-tissue that is injured, scarred, contains adhesions or is painful or ‘inflamed’. This energy shock is not electrical, but rather a rapid high frequency vibration.

When appropriately applied, RPW can increase local blood flow, improve healing response, break apart scar tissue and adhesions, reduce muscle spasms, and directly decrease pain. Most patients tolerate the treatment well, and report only mild discomfort.

After the initial consultation to determine the basis of the problem, we work out the best treatment plan for you.

If appropriate for shockwave patients are prescribed therapeutic exercises and receive their first RPW treatment.

Typically, follow up sessions are brief and generally spaced about a week apart. Compared to usual treatment of heel pain, fewer sessions are required and patients gain longer lasting results. Another plus is that RPW will generally cost you much less than traditional treatments.
