ESWT Extracorporporeal Shock Wave Therapy
Podiatrist, David P. Rosenzweig, Board Certified in Podiatric Surgery offers Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (“ESWT”) for Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis. ESWT (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy) may be considered as a non-surgical therapeutic option for patients whose heel pain has not responsive to conservative treatment. ESWT, or Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, is a medical treatment developed to relieve the pain associated with soft tissue conditions like heelspur syndrome/ plantar fascilitis.
Which machine does the podiatrist use?
The Podiatrist uses the D-Actor 200® – The First High Frequency Pain Management System.
The D-Actor® 200 with EPAT® (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology) is the First High Frequency pain management system. The D-Actor 200 system is the most advanced and versatile non-invasive, in-office treatment solution. The highlights of this High-Frequency Pain Management System include: broad range of non-invasive applications, no anesthetics required, shortened recovery, excellent results, short treatment sessions, and it is a safe application.
The medical device used by podiatrists for extracorporeal shock wave therapy for heel spurs / plantar fascilitis is comparable to the medical device used in non-surgical treatment of kidney and gall-bladder stones. It is called a lithotriptor, and it generates strong shock waves at the treatment site. This is a nonsurgical out-patient procedure and is performed quickly and is painless. The ESWT treatment takes about thirty minutes and is performed under local anaesthesia.
