Welcome to the Patient Health Information Center where you can learn more about our non-invasive treatments for heel pains, and kidney stones.
A kidney stone is a hard, crystal-like mass that develops in the kidney. Under normal circumstances, your kidney will collect and dissolve your body’s waste materials and send them to the bladder to be excreted. Kidney stones occur when solid waste materials do not dissolve into the urine. Over time, these materials build up and form kidney stones.
The most common cause of heel pain is Plantar Fasciitis, also known as heel spur syndrome. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is a tight band of fibrous tissue starting at the heel, traveling across the arch, and fanning toward the toes. Heel spurs generally occur when the inflexible fascia is repeatedly stressed or the tissue is torn causing inflammation. Chronic heel pain is typically the result of an overload of physical activity or exercise causing the plantar to lose its elasticity.

Cellulite describes a condition that occurs mainly in adult women and may affect up to 90% of them, regardless of race, health condition or body weight. External characteristics are its specific location (lower buttocks, outer and posterior thighs and hips), tissue lumpiness, dryness and flabbiness of the skin. Although not defined as a pathologic condition, the presence of cellulite is an aesthetically disturbing problem for most women ages 18 and up and may cause significant psychological and self-esteem issues.
SHOCK WAVE THERAPY
Shock wave technology is used to generate extracorporeal (meaning outside of the body) acoustic waves to non-invasively treat specific sites deep within the body tissue. These waves are generated by an underwater high-voltage spark, which create single pulse waves with high-pressure amplitude, small pulse width, and short rise time. > LEARN MORE
