Plantar Faciitis, often called ‘Heel Spur’, is the most common cause of chronic foot pain. In fact, over a lifetime, approximately 10% of the general population will experience plantar fasciitis. Plantar Faciitis is essentially an overuse injury of the thick ligament running underneath your foot, from the heel to the forefoot. Continued damage results in ligament degeneration, tears/splits and ongoing pain.


There a number of potential causes of Plantar Facsiitis (see our Heel Pain page) and sometimes, even if with the best treatment, it can still be stubborn to resolve. The contiued pain can start to effect everday life as well as your ability to stay active and participate in sport.

Shockwave Therapy Forest Hill
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)
  • ESWT produces high energy shock waves and delivers them to the tissue via the surface of the skin.
  • As a result, the therapy activates self-healing processes where pain occurs. To put it simply: better blood circulation and the formation of new blood vessels results in improved metabolism. This in turn activates cell generation and helps dissolve calcium deposits.
  • The causes of chronic pain may be eliminated even in a short period of time.
