Experiencing a constant stabbing pain in your foot can seriously limit your daily activities, especially if you’re normally an active person. If you experience this stabbing pain consistently, particularly when you first walk in the morning, you may be suffering from one of the most common causes of foot pain—plantar fasciitis. You have more chances of suffering from this inflammation-based medical condition if you’re overweight or if you’re a runner.
The good news is, you don’t have to deal with the pain forever or even turn to serious medical procedures to recover. Our non-invasive shockwave therapy we offer at the Superhuman Clinic can work as a plantar fasciitis treatment, so you can enjoy a life without pain again and return to doing all the activities you love.
When the plantar fascia connective tissue in your foot becomes inflamed, you develop plantar fasciitis. Your plantar fascia supports the arch of your foot and is responsible for absorbing the shock when you walk. Naturally, when this area becomes inflamed you will suffer significant pain and discomfort. This painful foot condition may be caused by repeated stretching and tearing and is more common as you age, or if you are overweight.

You should come in for a checkup as soon as you start experiencing pain in your foot. If plantar fasciitis is ignored and left untreated, you may develop chronic heel pain that makes even menial daily tasks seem impossible. Some individuals choose to simply change the way they walk instead of getting treatment, but this could be detrimental to their health.
If you alter your gait to reduce your pain, you may end up developing more serious foot or back problems so you should come into the Superhuman Clinic for a medical assessment as soon as possible.
At the Superhuman Clinic, we offer shockwave therapy as a non-invasive alternative to treat the pain in your heels. This therapy works by activating your body’s natural healing response through low-energy wave pulses.
A 2017 meta-analysis published in Medicine found promising results; after combining and analyzing the results of 9 studies with a total of 935 patients included. This meta-analysis concluded that focused shockwave therapy can significantly relieve the pain caused by chronic plantar fasciitis.
