Leading Edge Technologies For Foot & Ankle Pain
Foot & Ankle Pain Relief From Award Winning Milwaukee, WI Podiatrists & Foot Surgeons
Our leading-edge technology allows us to diagnose and treat both common and uncommon foot and ankle conditions. Healthcare has moved toward non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures, and the technology we have in-office will not be found in most podiatry offices in the Milwaukee area. We want to put an end to foot and ankle pain with the least amount of trauma and down time for our patients.
ESWT:Shockwave Therapy-Especially For Chronic Heel Pain
Shockwave Therapy or Soundwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment used for chronic tendinitis. We use it primarily for the treatment of plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis. It is done in our podiatry office usually without anesthesia in less than 10 minutes. According to research and from our experience, Shockwave is effective approximately 80% of the time. In our opinion, it is an excellent alternative to surgery. Most people don’t have to miss work after a Shockwave Therapy treatment and can go about normal daily activities.
Diagnostic Ultrasound is a technology most people are familiar with since its used everyday in an OB/GYN office. We use it to help diagnose soft tissue conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, foreign bodies, tumors and tendon tears. We also use it commonly to help us guide cortisone injections to the exact place of inflammation. Besides being a great diagnostic tool, a diagnostic ultrasound is about one tenth the cost of an MRI.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
This in-office treatment is another excellent alternative to surgery for a few specific foot and ankle conditions. It has gained popularity since many professional athletes have undergone the treatment, including Tiger Woods for chronic Achilles tendinitis. Just as the name implies, plasma that is rich in platelets is used to help the body heal through a natural process. We have used PRP in conjunction with Shockwave Therapy for some conditions.
Shoes for the Diabetic Foot
You usually buy shoes at a shoe store, sure… but how many shoe stores do you know that sell shoes specifically designed for people who have diabetes? Probably none, since they have to be prescribed and fitted by a specialist. If you have diabetes, taking good care of your feet becomes paramount. Diabetic shoes are specifically designed to keep your feet safe and help prevent injuries and ulcers, as well as improving your mobility and level of comfort when walking or standing.
All-Natural Anti-Fungal Nail Polish
If you have toenail fungus, this product may be able to help treat and prevent future occurrences of the condition. Of course it isn’t the only treatment we offer for toenail fungus, but it can definitely help supplement what we do in our podiatry office and keep your toenails fungus-free at home. It’s all-natural, so it’s completely safe and backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
