Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) emerges as a highly effective intervention for addressing a spectrum of painful conditions afflicting the foot, ankle, and knee joints. These conditions, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, knee bursitis, and ankle arthritis, often impose debilitating discomfort and hinder daily activities.

At its core, ESWT harnesses high-energy waves targeted precisely at the source of pain, facilitating swift and targeted relief. By leveraging this advanced therapeutic approach, clinicians can substantially mitigate swelling in affected areas while concurrently promoting the regeneration of collagen—a pivotal component in tissue repair and resilience.

Patients undergoing ESWT typically witness remarkable progress in just three sessions, experiencing discernible alleviation of chronic foot pain. This treatment modality stands as a testament to the strides made in modern medical science, offering tangible relief and restoring the quality of life for individuals grappling with persistent musculoskeletal issues.

Furthermore, the versatility of ESWT extends beyond mere symptom management, as it addresses the underlying pathology of these conditions, fostering long-term healing and functional restoration. Unlike traditional therapies, which may offer temporary relief or necessitate invasive procedures, ESWT presents a non-invasive, outpatient alternative that minimizes downtime and potential complications.

The mechanism of action behind ESWT involves the transmission of shock waves through the skin to the affected area, where they induce microtrauma and initiate a cascade of biological responses. This process triggers an increase in blood flow, enhancing nutrient delivery and waste removal, thus facilitating tissue repair and regeneration. Additionally, ESWT has been shown to modulate pain perception by inhibiting pain signals and promoting the release of endorphins—natural analgesics produced by the body.

Moreover, ESWT boasts a favorable safety profile, with minimal adverse effects reported. This makes it an attractive option for individuals seeking relief from chronic foot, ankle, and knee pain without the risks associated with surgery or prolonged medication use. Furthermore, the customizable nature of ESWT allows healthcare providers to tailor treatment parameters to suit each patient’s unique needs, ensuring optimal outcomes and patient satisfaction.

In essence, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy represents a paradigm shift in the management of musculoskeletal disorders, offering a potent combination of efficacy, safety, and convenience. As research continues to unveil its full therapeutic potential, ESWT stands poised to revolutionize the landscape of pain management, empowering individuals to reclaim their mobility and vitality.

Went to the foot and ankle center in Dave because my ankle had been sore for four or five days. After examination Doctor D found that I had a torn ligament by doing a sonogram. I was treated for it and was released in a short most convenient amount of time. I will recommend friends to visit this office for foot and ankle problems.

Dr. D is amazing - she is incredibly thorough, has impressive knowledge, and describes everything in detail. She took the time to go over multiple issues and was very compassionate in her care plan while remaining honest and letting me know what to expect from long-term diagnoses.

From my first phone call with Vicky (at the desk), to meeting Dr. Dabakaroff and Isabella, my experience was wonderful. Dr. D. listened to my plantar fasciitis history; they took x-rays and an ultrasound immediately—right there in the office, which makes all the difference. Dr. D. gave me shots for pain for immediate relief, but is also working with me to stop the pain cycle, including a follow up visit, stretches and shoe suggestions. I’m excited to have found a wonderful podiatrist.

Honestly one of the best doctors I have ever met. I had an infected ingrown toenail and I was extremely nervous about getting it remove. I was able to be seen the same day. Staff were super sweet and reassuring. Dr.Wolansky made me feel so comfortable and walked me through the process as he was doing it. I honestly feel like more doctors like him are needed in the medical field. His bedside manner is impeccable and he truly loves what he does and cares for his patients. My procedure was done with state of the art technology which made me feel even more comfortable. I totally recommend 1000%. You won’t be disappointed!

The staff is amazing, starting with the receptionist. She is always so accommodating with scheduling. She is warm and welcoming and sets a great atmosphere for this office. I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Lauren and she was very thorough and explained in detail the problems I had been having for years with my feet. Before Dr. Lauren, I went to a couple of doctors with no success. Dr. Lauren is the best at what she does, hands down. She treated me with respect and I walked out their office pain free. From now on, this is my go to office for my feet because this is their specialty. Thank you Dr. Lauren. This is Marlanda Pittman
