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 those with long-standing 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 for their statement and the conclusion biased; this is referred to as a conflict of interest.

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. Noninvasive procedure using pressure waves to trigger healing.

2. Does not improve how the feet handle gravity.

To correct the cause of your plantar fasciitis, you need to optimize how the feet handle gravity – SHOCK.

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.

Optimize how the feet absorb shock for the best long-term outcome with a precision calibrated custom foot orthotic.
