BACK IN MO­TION HEALTH GROUP COMO

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Lifestyle -

PLAN­TAR Fasci­itis is swelling and thick­en­ing un­der the ball of the heel bone and a com­mon cause of heel pain, says Back In Mo­tion di­rec­tor and phys­io­ther­a­pist Ni­cholas Wig­ger.

“If it be­comes chronic, the body’s re­sponse is to lay down bone, cre­at­ing a heel spur and caus­ing pain when walk­ing af­ter pe­ri­ods of rest,” he said.

Ra­dial Shock­wave Ther­apy is a non-in­va­sive treat­ment avail­able at Back In Mo­tion.

An acous­tic pulse is trans­mit­ted into the tis­sue of the af­fected area to stim­u­late re-ab­sorp­tion of ex­cess cal­cium de­posits and in­crease blood flow, pro­mot­ing ten­don heal­ing and re­duc­ing pain.
