CALGARY, Alberta, Sept. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bankers Hall Chiropractic of Calgary, Alberta, seeks to warn area residents of the importance of orthotics heading into fall and winter. After a summer of wearing flip flops and sandals, many people suffer from plantar fasciitis and other injuries related to the lack of support sandals and flip flops provide. Bankers Hill Chiropractic founder, Dr. John Collins, recommends shockwave therapy as one form of treatment. A relatively new offering for the clinic, shockwave therapy works to relieve pain and restore mobility. The treatment involves the use of sound waves for treating pain in areas that have not responded to more standard treatments.

Bankers Hall Chiropractic in Calgary, Alberta, wants to raise awareness about the importance of orthotic treatments to undo damage done to the body from wearing flip flops and sandals all summer. As the first taste of fall is in the air, Dr. John Collis of Bankers Hall Chiropractic urges area residents to consider a visit to the chiropractor to correct shoulder, neck, back, and foot pain. These are all types of pain that could be the result of plantar fasciitis or other injuries related to summer footwear choices.

Dr. Collins believes that shockwave therapy, now available at the clinic, is an ideal solution for this type of pain. Shockwave therapy is a treatment that utilizes sound waves to relieve pain and reduce muscle tension. This in turn helps to prevent painful spasms.

"The most important feature of shockwave therapy," says Dr. Collins, "is the fact that it improves metabolism and micro-circulation, actually promoting the body's natural ability to heal itself."

In addition to treating plantar fasciitis, shockwave therapy is also highly effective for treating stress fractures, rotator cuff injuries, chronic back pain, shin splints, fibromyalgia, whiplash and chronic muscle pain.

The sessions last 10 to 15 minutes and provide relief for most patients about 72 hours after the treatment. Results will vary from person to person and injury to injury. Many people feel some degree of lasting relief from their foot, neck, back, and shoulder pain after as few as two sessions. Other patients take several more sessions before experiencing lasting pain.

As colder weather approaches, Dr. Collins urges area residents experiencing pain that may be the result of plantar fasciitis or other shoe-related injuries, to call Bankers Hall Chiropractic to set up an appointment and consultation today. The number is 403-243-0111.
