Issaquah Foot & Ankle Specialists continues to provide the most up-to-date medical care available. We are pleased to introduce Shockwave Therapy. Shockwave Therapy is an excellent modality for people with heel pain, chronic heel pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, neuromas, sesamoiditis, medial tibal stress syndrome, shin splints, and any other tendinopathies or chronic muscle type issues. This new therapy is extremely safe and requiers no local anesthetic. It generally takes 5-15 minutes. The treatments are usually one week apart and generally takes 3-5 sessions. The success rate is over 80%. The technology basically uses shockwaves to create increased blood supply an dhelp heal infalmmatory type conditions. We currently use the CuraMedix extracorporeal pulse activation technology in our office setting and are excited to offer this option.
