Before racing in the final at Edmonton, Commonwealth Games champion Vicky Holland will be racing at the penultimate World Series leg in Stockholm. With the inflammation of her plantar fasciitis deterring her efforts earlier in the year, the Olympic triathlete understands how lucky she is to still be in the running. Holland is ending her season early to recover from the condition. “I’m not sure what the plan is at the end of the season, whether I will be in a boot or have shockwave therapy again or have injections … So it’s important for me now to finish the season early, address the issues I have and then go again.”

Plantar fasciitis can be treated in various ways, one method being shockwave therapy. For more information, speak to Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey.Dr. Conforti will attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a new treatment option designed to treat bone conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, and others. This technique is used on patients that do not respond well to physiotherapy. Shockwave therapy uses high intensity sound waves that are directed to the affected tissues of the body with pinpoint accuracy. The effects are very beneficial, leading to a production of collagen fibers, eliminating inflammation.

Who Benefits from Shockwave?

Shockwave is recommended for patients suffering from heel pain and associated problems. Heel pain is a common condition which can be caused by obesity, overexertion, and spending a substantial amount of time on hard floors with your feet exposed and unsupported.

Fast and Easy

The therapy is actually a simple process that can leave patients feeling better the very next day. Shockwave therapy is not as dramatic as it sounds. It enables more blood flow to effected areas, attacking the source of the problem so treatment lasts for a long time.

Treatment & Recovery Time

Shockwave treatment will enable your feet to recover quickly. This is especially important since surgery is not required. It is cost effective and does not require the use of anesthesia. This treatment is a better option to surgery, since it is proven safe.
