Virtually all muscular, joint and ligamentous pain in the feet can be treated by our Walk Without Pain Podiatry Clinics.
Often these problems are caused by poor foot function / biomechanics (the way bones, joints and soft tissue work) and can really be fixed completely. Even conditions that can’t be cured such as Rheumatoid Arthritis can be relieved if the foot function is made more efficient. Read More…
While podiatry typically is viewed as a somewhat expensive service, here at Walk Without Pain we do our utmost to lessen the financial blow and as such our rates are considered much more affordable than our competitors. What’s more, given that we have alliances with Medicare Private and BUPA, we are in the fortunate position to offer special rates and reductions in some instances. The availability of HICAPS rebates at each of our clinics also seeks to make podiatry a much more accessible service to as many of our fellow Australians as possible.
How Shockwave Therapy for Heel Spurs Works
In order to alleviate the pain of a heel spur, professional attention is required. A heel spur is basically a hook of bone that is brought about by a build-up of calcium on the base of the heel bone. It isn’t a sudden issue that presents, but rather develops over time and is usually set off by strain brought on the foot, or stretching the plantar fascia. Athletes most commonly suffer from this problem, however, it is something that anybody that jogs, runs or participates in jumping as part of their exercise can develop.
While there are simple solutions available in terms of orthotics that can be customised to reduce the pain and ease the discomfort felt, here at Walk Without Pain we also use extracorporeal shockwave therapy for heel spurs (ESWT).
This process is completely non-invasive and involves the delivery of a shock directed at the heel spur which increases blood flow to the area. The result is that your heel spur can heal without any impact to the surrounding tissue or skin. Contrary to what most folks will think of when they hear of shockwaves, there is no electricity delivered to the body, instead what it involves is a pulse that stimulates the body’s natural healing process.
A normal treatment session will last approximately 15 minutes and those that are ideal candidates for it typically will have tried a number of previous solutions that failed to remedy the presenting issue.
