Shockwave Therapy Q & A

What is shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy, short for extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), is a cutting-edge healing and regenerative solution for chronic pain and acute injuries.

This revolutionary therapy works by sending gentle waves of energy deep down into targeted tissues. The energy causes microtrauma in the tissues.

As a result, your body thinks an injury is occurring and immediately jumps in to start making repairs, similar to what happens when you have a cut. Blood flow increases and boosts of vital nutrients are delivered to the area, which helps tissues heal.

The entire procedure is quick and entirely noninvasive.

What can shockwave therapy treat?

The skilled podiatry team at Lone Peak Foot & Ankle Clinic uses shockwave therapy sessions to treat a wide variety of injuries and chronic pain-causing ailments. Shockwave therapy is beneficial if you have:


  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel pain
  • Flat feet
  • Sprains and strains
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Peroneal tendonitis
  • Posterior tibial tendonitis (PTTD)

Shockwave therapy can be beneficial for providing relief for other ailments too. This revolutionary treatment is sometimes paired with surgery, injections, or medications to further help you heal and get relief from foot and ankle pain.

How long does it take for shockwave therapy to work?

In many cases, you can start feeling an improvement within a couple of days of your shockwave therapy session. Because it takes your body time to heal, you might need as many as 3 sessions weekly but may take an additional 4-8 weeks, in order to achieve the optimal results.

Your dedicated podiatrist at Lone Peak Foot & Ankle Clinic designs your shockwave therapy treatment plan, based on your specific condition and overall health. But it also just depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.

As long as you follow your treatment plan and continue coming in for shockwave therapy as recommended, the treatment has an over 85% success rate. Since an average shockwave therapy session takes just 5-10 minutes and requires no downtime, you can easily schedule your visits during your lunch break.
