Extracorporeal shock wave therapy, or ESWT, is a patient treatment option for chronic plantar fasciitis. ESWT delivers a penetrating wave of energy to the heel, creating a micro-trauma to the affected problematic tissue, plantar fasciitus and the body will respond to this microtrauma by healing it. Thus new increased delivery of nutrients and blood vessel formation to the area. The microtrauma is thought to relieve symptoms of heel pain by stimulating the repair process.
