Electroanalgesia Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
Electroanalgesia is a form of pain treatment that uses electrical stimulation to reduce pain caused by plantar fasciitis. It differs from the standard TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) treatment in that it is performed over multiple sessions and specifically targets the affected area for long-term relief. TENS provides only short term relief for plantar fasciitis.
Unlike TENS, which uses mild electrical current and is only suitable for short-term relief, electroanalgesia delivers a high-pulse electrical current to the affected area, which causes muscle contraction and increases circulation.
It’s a non-invasive treatment that blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain and releases endorphins. Electroanalgesia can also be used to reduce muscle spasms, which can help improve mobility and reduce pain.
Electroanalgesia is an FDA-approved treatment that has been around for decades and has been proven to be effective time and time again. Unfortunately, it’s not often prescribed in the healthcare community because it requires at least two weekly sessions for 12 weeks to be truly effective.
Because it’s not a quick fix, many healthcare professionals turn to medications and surgery instead. However, electroanalgesia provides pain relief that lasts longer after each session you have.
IV Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis
IV therapy is a type of treatment that involves delivering vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This form of therapy efficiently administers the necessary nutrients to the body to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and relieve pain.
It’s a great way to treat plantar fasciitis because it helps reduce inflammation and promote healing in the affected area. Our IV therapy treatment is based on each patient’s needs, which we identify by assessing their bloodwork.
Lifestyle Counseling for Plantar Fasciitis
Finally, lifestyle changes may be necessary for ongoing relief from plantar fasciitis pain. As such, our patient education program is an essential component of our overall approach to treating plantar fasciitis.
We will work with you to identify risk factors contributing to your pain, including footwear, weight, gait, and stress. Additionally, we provide lifestyle counseling to help you make the necessary changes to reduce pain and promote healing.
With the help of our team, you can learn how to make simple lifestyle changes that will have a lasting impact on your health and well-being. As a result, we can help ensure that any pain from plantar fasciitis is kept at bay over the long term.
