Low Energy ESWT

Expect to spend about 10 minutes getting the treatment, no anesthesia is required but for some patients the initial treatment can be uncomfortable. Local anesthesia can be administered in such cases, but only 1% of our patients requires such. If you are in the 1% usually by the third treatment your condition (Plantar Fasciitis or Achilles Tendonitis) would have improved enough to not require anymore anesthesia. The low ESWT procedure causes anesthesia via negative feedback and desensitize the treated area. Remember that 5 treatments are required for the low energy at 4-7 days apart.
