THE ACTIVE FOOT STORE AND SPA
IS THE ONLY LOCATION IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY TO OFFER THE MOST ADVANCED SHOCK WAVE THERAPY FOR HEEL PAIN, ADMINISTERED UNDER THE DIRECTION OF OUR MEDICAL DIRECTOR.
The new Swiss Dolor Clast Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT) is fast, gentle, and most importantly a non-surgical method of reducing foot pain and getting you back on your feet. It works by sending shockwaves, also known as pressure or sound waves, through the skin and onto the targeted tissue. When the shockwaves make contact with the inflamed tissue they stimulate your body’s natural self-healing process. This treatment is non- invasive and there is no surgery involved. It is a safe and effective alternative to traditional heel pain treatments. RSWT has been approved by the FDA specifically for heel pain. Currently, The Active Foot Store Facility has the only one of these FDA approved devices in San Diego.
Over 50% of Americans will suffer from heel pain at some point in their lifetime. In fact, about 20% of the patients seen in Dr. Reingold’s office suffer from some type of heel pain. Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome. However, heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as a stress fracture, arthritis, tendonitis, nerve irritation, or, rarely, a cyst.
If you are one of the millions of Americans that suffers from chronic heel pain and traditional treatments such as, anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and physical therapy do not seem to be working for you, then we may have the solution you have been waiting for, RSWT.
