Shockwave therapy for plantar fasciitis #shockwavetherapy Just wanted to share my experience of shockwave therapy. I had my first session last Friday and 4 more to go. I've had plantar fasciitis since January and the pain didn't just happen during the morning, it was throughout the day and making any normal activity including walking and standing challenging. I definitely saw improvement with exercises, massage, accupunture, chiropractic care. However, there's always still pain if I increase walking or stand for a long time etc. I finally decided to take the plunge with shockwave therapy. The actual treatment was completely bearable and not as awful as I expected it to be. After the treatment I managed to get through the day without any significant pain. I've also seen improvement with pain but the real test will be in about 12 weeks time. Will keep you all posted. I would definitely recommend it to those who have tried everything else and would say that you still have to be diligent with the exercises even with the treatment. I am so grateful to be able to do a long 40 minute walk thanks to all the little things that I did which eventually got me here and will never take walking for granted.
