The plantar fascia is a ligament like band running from the heel to the ball of your foot. This band pulls on the heel bone, raising the arch of your foot as it pushes up from the ground. If you move incorrectly, the plantar fascia may become strained. The fascia may swell and its tiny fibers may begin to fray, causing plantar fasciitis.
The Shockwave therapy or ESWT, is a treatment option for People with chronic plantar fasciitis. This delivers focused shock waves into the heel inducing microtrauma to the tissue that is affected by plantar fasciitis and initiating a healing response by the body. The Healing response causes blood vessel formation and increased delivery of nutrients to the affected heel Stimulating the repair process and relieving the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
Chronic Achilles tendonitis occurs when the Achilles tendon happens when the tendons are inflamed for period of time, usually due to repetitive overuse or irritation. It may be a result of acute tendinitis that has been left cared for or has not been allowed sufficient rest.
Shockwave therapy was first developed 20 years ago as a treatment for kidney stones. Now this treatment is effective in treating tennis elbow. When physical therapy, NSAIDS, or rest and ice fail to alleviate this painful condition, doctors have typically used surgery as the next option. However, with ESWT, treatment is applied in only a single session, in the doctor?s office, lasting only twenty minutes. Lateral epicondylitis, or ?tennis elbow,? is a result of repetitive movements of the forearm muscles.
What is Cryosurgery By having the ice form around the nerve itself, the outer layers of the nerve sheath degenerates ,in doing so, decreases the nerve?s abilities to transmit the signal of pain. Over the next couple of months, the nerve sheath regenerates again and in most cases regenerates without the inflammation and you are pain free
Toenail laser fungus We use the most effective toenail laser . This particular spectrum of light go right through the nail without damaging it at all , and it kills the fungus living under the nail. This great approach to solving toenail fungus is more effective than topical treatment and without the side effects of taking pills. After your toenail will not become instantly clear, as it grows, the new nail will grow out normal as a result of it killing the fungus.
