We use Shockwave Therapy as a non-invasive treatment for chronic Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. You can expect the treatment to last fewer than 10 minutes and not require any anesthesia. Through experience and research, we have determined that 80% of the time, Shockwave provides an effective solution that allows most patients to easily work around their normal schedule and daily activities.
Many people know about Diagnostic Ultrasound because OB/GYN physicians use it with their expectant patients on a daily basis. We use it to properly diagnose foot conditions and identify exactly where the problem is – eliminating trial and error treatment and continued pain for the patient. With our Diagnostic Ultrasound machine, we can locate and begin to effectively treat soft tissue conditions like Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, tumors, foreign bodies, torn tendons, and stress fractures. It also helps us guide injections of cortisone to the precise place that is in pain due to inflammation. You’ll also find insurance companies love it, as it only costs about one tenth the amount of the typical MRI.
Digital radiology has revolutionized podiatric care over the past decade. Digital x-rays allow Dr. Ross to take and magnify an image of your foot with crystal clear details that enable him to tell stress fractures apart from other abnormalities. It ensures a proper diagnosis of painful foot and ankle conditions with the ability to view this immediately in the office. He also uses digital x-rays to monitor your foot’s structure on an ongoing basis in order to evaluate and treat any chronic foot conditions. In some cases, Dr. Ross may use digital x-rays to guide him during surgical procedures and to share results with other doctors, as you wish.
Do you know that we can use stem cells from your body to help cure many classic foot and ankle injuries? In stem cell therapy we take stem cells from your bone marrow and use them to speed up the natural healing process of damaged joints, ligaments, muscles and/or tendons. Top athletes and trainers prefer this noninvasive treatment because it decreases foot and ankle injury recovery time.
If you’re tired of suffering from Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, or other chronic foot injuries, we can use stem cell therapy to promote healing in the area that’s damaged. The simple injections we use provide you with a focused flow of concentrated stem cells that naturally and gently enhance the healing process.
We are committed to earning the trust of our patients, profession and community. If you would like to know more, Podiatrist Dr. Paul Ross can start helping you in a few ways:
