The Achilles tendon is found in the back of the ankle, and is in fact the largest tendon in the human body. The purpose of the tendon is to lift the heel. Achilles tendonitis is the inflammation of this tendon which causes the associated discomfort and pain. Many athletes can suffer from Achilles tendinitis: runners, basketball players, footballers, all athletes and team players can suffer from this condition.
The plantar fascia is a broad aponeurosis or sheet of soft tissue underneath the foot that attaches to the calcaneus or heel bone. Its main action is to act like a spring for the whole foot and therefore improve efficiency during the toe-off phase of gait. This aponeurosis or fascia can become irritated and inflamed, causing considerable pain when walking.
A heel spur is a piece of bone or rather an elongation of an existing piece of bone caused by the fascia that attaches to it continually pulling and irritating the site where the two structures meet. Once inflamed, if untreated, the pain can last for months and be very painful.

Shockwave Therapy (SWT)
Shockwave Therapy can achieve excellent results for people suffering from chronic and persistent Achilles Tendinitis, Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Spurs. In many instances there will be an immediate reduction in pain, as well as improved mobility and function. This therapy is non-invasive, non-addictive and there is no need for anaesthesia. Each treatment session takes approximately 5-20 minutes. Most conditions require just 3 to 5 treatments that are done 3-7 days apart.
