South Surrey Shockwave Therapy
If you’re among the millions suffering from plantar fasciitis, you know how debilitating the pain can be. Walking, running, or even standing can become excruciating. Thankfully, South Surrey Chiropractic and Wellness offer shockwave therapy to help relieve this common foot condition effectively.
Understanding Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. It often causes intense heel pain and stiffness, making daily activities challenging. Common causes include overuse, improper footwear, high-impact workouts, and structural imbalances.
How Shockwave Therapy Works
Shockwave therapy, or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing in damaged tissues. Regarding plantar fasciitis, shockwave therapy targets the affected area, delivering focused shockwaves that break down scar tissue, increase blood flow, and promote tissue regeneration.
The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
- Non-Surgical Solution: Shockwave therapy offers a non-surgical alternative for individuals seeking pain relief from plantar fasciitis.
- Effective Pain Relief: Shockwave therapy has shown impressive results in reducing pain associated with plantar fasciitis. Many patients experience significant improvement in symptoms and easing of pain, allowing them to resume their daily activities with minimal discomfort.
- Enhanced Healing: By promoting blood circulation and tissue regeneration, shockwave therapy can accelerate the healing process. Shockwave therapy treatments help repair damaged tissues, stimulate collagen production, and improve overall foot function.
- Improved Range of Motion: Plantar fasciitis can limit mobility and hinder foot flexibility. Shockwave treatments can help restore range of motion, allowing patients to move freely and get back to doing physical activities they enjoy.

Does It Hurt?
During shockwave therapy sessions, some individuals may experience mild pain or discomfort due to the breakdown of old scar tissue. However, this discomfort is typically short-lived. Our priority is to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment, and we will adjust the intensity as needed to maintain a steady comfort level.
The best part is that there is virtually no downtime after the sessions. You can resume your regular activities, but we advise avoiding strenuous exercises or high-impact activities for a few days following each session to support the healing process.
