Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LOCAL FOCUS -

PLANTAR FASCIITIS is a com­mon cause of heel pain dis­play­ing as swelling and thick­en­ing un­der the ball of the heel bone.

If it be­comes chronic, the body’s re­sponse is to lay down more bone, lead­ing to the cre­ation of a heel spur.

Pain af­ter tak­ing the first steps in the morn­ing or af­ter be­ing seated is indica­tive of the con­di­tion.

Ra­dial shock­wave ther­apy is a non-in­va­sive treat­ment in­volv­ing an acous­tic pulse trans­mit­ted into af­fected tis­sue.

Treat­ment works to stim­u­late the re­ab­sorp­tion of ex­cess cal­cium de­posits and in­crease blood flow to pro­mote ten­don heal­ing, thus re­duc­ing pain sig­nif­i­cantly.
