Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis


orthospec-or3-back-left-viewFor over a decade, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has been known to be an extremely effective therapeutic approach when treating plantar fasciitis. The Orthospec delivers non-invasive shock waves to the heel tissue quickly and painlessly. The procedure is indicated for the treatment of proximal plantar fasciitis in patients with or without heel spurs.

As one of the first devices approved by the FDA with validated clinical studies showing efficacy rate of 89%, the Orthospec delivers high energy, focused shock waves to the affected areas, which result in deeper tissue penetration and faster recovery. This device uses spark gap technology and incorporates both adjustable energy levels and large therapy zone to create the most effective HIGH ENERGY ESWT device. The Orthospec treatment lasts only 25 minutes and the recovery is much faster than surgery, providing an earlier return to your daily routine.

A true Shock Wave delivers focused shock waves, therefore does not propagate. With a deeper penetration, a single session treatment is required. The shock wave essentially creates a micro trauma and initiates a healing response by the body. This stimulates the healing process relieving the symptoms of heel pain.

What will it accomplish?

Clinical Studies demonstrate that the Orthospec™ is a safe and effective tool in treating pain caused by Proximal Plantar Fasciitis. The double-blind study demonstrates clinical success to be unbiased and encouraging. After the exhaustion of conservative means, surgical plantar fasciotomy was the practitioners’ choice treatment for the reduction of heel pain. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy using the Orthospec™ device offers the patient a more safe and viable option prior to surgical intervention.
