Are you suffering from Chronic Plantar Fasciitis? Then come on in to the Beaver Valley Foot Clinic for Extracorporeal Shock wave Therapy. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy, or ESWT, is a treatment option for patients with chronic plantar fasciitis. ESWT delivers focused shock waves to the heel inducing microtrauma to the tissue that is affected by plantar fasciitis and initiating a healing response by the body.
