A person's feet can be an unfortunate source of pain and discomfort and for many, and this can last for years before they seek treatment. There are too many conditions and problems to count that can be related to your legs and feet because this is the area of the body that is under the most stress through normal movements, like walking. However, there is treatment out there for you, even if you have tried different exercises and routines before. Shockwave therapy can help you in ways that many other treatment programs cannot, and it has blown up in popularity in recent years because of that.
What Is It?
Firstly, there is no need to be alarmed at the use of the term shockwave. There is no pain involved in this treatment, although some people find the feeling a little unusual and uncomfortable. It works by first applying some lubrication to the feet and then by using a special tool that uses mechanical energy (not electric) to vibrate a small head onto your body. It is a very precise and quick treatment that generally takes less than half an hour to completely finish in each session, and by the end of it, you will see results quickly.
What Can It Help?
While shockwave treatment sounds good, you still will need to know if it works for the problems you have. Luckily, it can assist in a whole range of problems on your feet. From plantar fasciitis to tendonitis, and even higher up your leg like joint pain in your knee. After a few sessions, most people report a very strong reduction in the overall pain, and through continued use this effect can be even greater. The best way to know if this shockwave treatment plan could help you is to talk to a podiatrist or a practitioner who offers it.
Do You Really Need It?
Non-invasive and non-medicinal treatments should always be a top priority for people looking to treat chronic aches and pains. Helping treat these painful injuries now can make sure that you keep a full range of movement long into the future. You might think that you can put up with the pain, and while that may be true for now, it will only get worse as you get older. You use your feet everyday of your life, and general tasks like walking do not have to be painful. If you want the freedom to not take painkillers for simply going to the shops for some bread and milk, then you should seriously consider looking into shockwave treatment.

Hi, my name is Steve and I’m a keen runner. I’ve been running for fun for years. I love the buzz I get from a long run and the fact that my hobby helps keeps me fit. Last year, I started to experience problems with my feet and ankles. It started with just a few twinges and soreness but ended up getting so bad that I couldn’t run to my usual schedule any longer. I couldn’t work out what was going wrong, so a friend recommended I see a podiatrist. I was a bit sceptical at first; however, my podiatrist immediately identified some issues with my running gait and shoes that were causing my problems. I started this blog to pass on some of the advice I got for any other runners who are suddenly suffering from unexplained discomfort. Hope it helps keep you on the road!
