Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy Does Not Help Plantar Fasciitis

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

According to this 5/6/2015 Press Release by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons up to 65 percent of patients with chronic plantar fasciitis may benefit from Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT).

Lies!

The authors completely fail to mention how the results of ESWT are SHORT-TERM!

Point being: Don’t believe everything you read on-line.

Especially when the authors are paid off and the conclusion biased.

These authors were paid to say what they did.

Don’t believe us?

Read it for yourself!

Read the disclosure.

Here’s an excerpt:

“One or more of the authors received payments… from a third party in support of an aspect of this work.”

In other words, this press release is completely biased and designed to sell ESWT.

Facts about Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

1. It’s a noninvasive procedure that uses pressure waves to trigger healing.

2. Does nothing to address how the feet handle gravity.

Folks, if you’re looking to correct the cause of your plantar fasciitis, you need a precision calibrated custom foot orthotic designed to optimize how your feet handle gravity.

We live in gravity.

Therefore, the solution for your plantar fasciitis must address gravity.

Ask yourself.

“How exactly does ESWT help hold my arch UP against my body weight and gravity?”

It doesn’t – EVER!

And that’s exactly why the results are short-term… unless you plan to never stand up again, in which case gravity is no longer an issue.

End of story!
