Shockwave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition that occurs when there is repetitive stress to the fascia.  The fascia forms the arch of the foot and connects the heel to the toes, providing support to the bottom of the foot.

Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis often presents as:

  • Pain and stiffness in the arch or heel of the foot, which is often worse in the morning.
  • Sufferers often describe a sharp or stabbing pain when they step out of bed in the morning.
  • An increase in intensity of pain with activity including prolonged standing, excessive walking, or even after climbing stairs.

Risk Factors for Plantar Fasciitis

Unfortunately, Plantar Fasciitis is a very common condition and the resulting pain is intense.  You may be at a higher risk if you have flat feet or high arches; wear improper footwear; are obese or experience a weight gain (including pregnancy); have a highly active lifestyle; have tight calf muscles, or walk with excessive pronation (i.e. feet roll inwards).

What Is The Best Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis?

On your initial visit to Ace Physio, our Physiotherapists will assess your condition to determine the root cause of your Plantar Fasciitis symptoms.   Your Physiotherapist will then design a customized plan of treatment to help get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.

Fortunately, at Ace Physio we are having amazing success treating Plantar Fasciitis with Shockwave Therapy.  Prior to Shockwave Therapy, Plantar Fasciitis could take months or even years to resolve with treatment.  Now, with the use of the advanced Storz MP200 Shockwave Therapy machine, many of our patients are better (and certainly feel less pain) in as little as 3 to 5 treatments.

Shockwave Therapy works by applying strong acoustic pressure waves into the painful tissue, causing a revitalization and healing of the tissue.

We are conveniently located in downtown Toronto near the corner of Yonge and College.
