Shockwave Therapy an Option for Commonwealth Games champion Vicky Holland

olympic%20triathlete.pngVicky Holland will be competing in her in second-to-last competition for the season at the Stockholm leg of the World Series before the final at Edmonton. The competitor is grateful for her progress thus far, as she has been suffering from inflammation due to plantar fasciitis since early in the year. Holland is choosing to end the season early to fully recover from the condition. “I’m not sure what the plan at the end of the season is, whether I will be in a boot or have shockwave therapy again or have injections … So it’s important for me now to finish the season early, address the issues I have and then go again.”

Plantar fasciitis can be cured using a wide array of treatments, one being shockwave therapy. To learn more, consult with Dr. Bryant A. Tarr, D.P.M. of Sudbury & Westford Podiatry. Dr. Tarr will assist you with all of your foot and ankle concerns.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a new treatment option designed to treat bone conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, and others. Shockwave therapy uses high intensity sound waves that are directed to the affected tissues of the body with pinpoint accuracy. The effects are very beneficial, leading to a production of collagen fibers, eliminating inflammation.

Who Benefits from Shockwave?

Shockwave is recommended for patients suffering from heel pain and associated problems. Heel pain is a common condition which can be caused by obesity, overexertion, and spending a substantial amount of time on hard floors with your feet exposed and unsupported.

Fast and Easy

The therapy is actually a simple process that can leave patients feeling better the very next day. Shockwave therapy is not as dramatic as it sounds. It enables more blood flow to effected areas, attacking the source of the problem so treatment lasts for a long time.

Treatment & Recovery Time

Shockwave treatment will enable your feet to recover quickly. This is especially important since surgery is not required. It is cost effective and does not require the use of anesthesia. This treatment is a better option to surgery, since it is proven safe.
