Treating Plantar Fasciitis With Shockwave

Introducing: Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most stubborn causes of heel pain - and one that some people struggle with for years before finding an effective solution. The reason for its long-standing nature is fairly simple: the plantar fascia is situated the bottom of the foot, and its role is to help support the arch and foot.
