Oh, the agony of heel pain! It seems to be spreading at epidemic proportions. You’ve seen multiple doctors and have had injections, orthotics and now surgery seems to be your last option. So you see another doctor and you hear the same story and get offered the same treatments again. Dr. Marc Katz, a Tampa podiatrist, was tired of having nothing new to offer his patients for relief. As a result, he researched new technologies and came up with an advanced multi-technology treatment with great results and no surgery with diabetes mediation.
As a heel pain sufferer, you likely have gotten disgusted and depressed dealing with the daily pain. You want to exercise to lose weight and stay fit but the pain does not allow you to do even basic activities. The thought of surgery scares you and you worry that you may be worse and have to take of time from work and maybe even have complications.
Well the answer is here for heel pain relief. Dr. Katz combines High Frequency Radial Pressure Wave Treatment with Super Pulsed Laser Treatments and both are FDA cleared medical devices. These 2 high-tech approaches when combined produce amazing results, says Katz. They are non-invasive and represent a more holistic approach to healing and they help avoid surgery. Dr. Katz calls his new protocol the Super Pulse Wave Technique.
When a person develops heel pain and it lingers for months or years, the body goes into a protection mode so there is no damage to the heel. Unfortunately, the body’s protection mode leads to long-standing or chronic inflammation. This chronic inflammation stops the healing process, so conventional treatments don’t always work. Cortisone injections don’t work for some people with this type of inflammation and actually can weaken the immune system and further stop the healing process. Katz says that we have to look at the body as a whole and understand the healing process and inflammation patterns. Most doctors just see this condition strictly as a heel problem. Nothing could be further from the truth! The chronic inflammation produced by the body must be converted into the good inflammation that turns on the body’s healing mechanisms. In addition, structural problems of the feet and legs must be addressed. Other conditions that can be treated include Achilles tendonitis, capsulitis and ligament injuries.
After years of research, Dr. Katz has found the treatment combination that leads to good inflammation, allowing healing cells to enter the heel area and resolve your pain. These cells will remove inflammation and actually heal the tissues that have been resistant to other treatments. In addition, the treatments relieve congestion of the injured area and reset nerves that continue to fire abnormally and cause pain. This is not a Band-Aid, says Katz, it is healing of tissue in a natural way. It is an awakening of the body’s healing process to cure your problem.
The treatments are done in a comfortable office environment. Most treatments occur weekly for 5 weeks and last about 20 minutes. No anesthesia is required and expensive outpatient surgeries can be avoided. This has truly been a breakthrough in heel pain treatments. The public is looking for non-invasive treatments that are fairly priced and that do not lead to down time. Katz says that his patients are too busy with work and kids to take time away from their fast-paced lives.
