I was suffering from plantar fasciitis for the last few weeks, most likely due to inadequate shoes. The use of a heel lift, ice applications, and acupuncture brought me no relief. I was then introduced to Shockwave therapy by a very reputable podiatrist in Montreal. I was refered to Action Sport Physio under the care of Alain Scheldeman. The results were nothing less than great. Three treatments, at a week apart, were sufficient to get rid of all my pain. I am now able to practice my favorite activity, which is walking, without any pain. Many thanks to Alain Scheldeman !
