Heel spurs occur at the base of the heel and maybe associated with plantar fasciitis.
This condition develops when there is traction on the inferior part of the heel that causes calcium build-up in that area. Heels spurs may cause pain, inflammation, and swelling at the base of the heel.
Research shows that shockwave therapy for heel spurs is an effective treatment that heals the pain 84% of the time.
MASTERPULS® ONE and MASTERPULS® Ultra MP50, MP100, and MP200 machines, from Storz Medical, available at Shockwave Canada, can be used to quickly and non-invasively treat heel spurs.
