Orthopedic treatment is not just restricted to surgeries. There are many alternative non-surgical procedures for less serious conditions and Orthotripsy is one of them. This involves administration of Extracorporeal Shock Waves for musculoskeletal applications and is usually referred to patients suffering from chronic proximal plantar fasciopathy (severe heel pain). These waves are aimed at increasing the blood flow and stimulate healing of the affected heel. Orthotripsy is not recommended to patients who suffer from serious medical condition or ailments.
