At Silverstone Podiatry, we are committed to offering the highest level of care and the latest treatment options using the most advanced technologies available. When you visit our New York, NY, foot specialist for your foot or ankle pain, you can look forward compassionate care using the cutting-edge technologies below.
Digital x-rays allow us to diagnose issues you may be having in the bones or joints of your feet or ankles. These types of issues include heel spurs, hammertoes, bunions, and a number of other foot problems. Our digital x-ray machine helps us to quickly diagnose and treat your foot or ankle condition because the images are immediately available to us on a computer screen. Your treatment can then be carried out faster and with more accuracy if you have an issue with the joints or bones in your feet and ankles.
Diagnostic ultrasound is used to help diagnose foot and ankle conditions that an x-ray would miss, like soft tissue conditions. Most people are familiar with this type of technology because it’s used in an OB/GYN office every day. It helps to identify conditions such as Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis, and it also helps us guide injections for more accurate treatment when needed. Diagnostic ultrasound is an excellent tool to help identify your foot or ankle conditions at about one tenth the cost of an MRI.
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 non-invasive 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.
Shockwave therapy or sound wave therapy is used primarily to treat soft tissue conditions like plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinitis. If you have one of these conditions and our New York, NY, foot specialist recommends this particular treatment, you’ll be happy to know that it is effective about 80% of the time. It’s an efficient alternative to surgery, as no anesthesia is needed and you can go about your normal daily activities after this outpatient treatment. If you receive shockwave therapy, you can expect treatment to be fast, too, so that you can get back to your life quickly.
These are just some of the technologies you’ll see when you visit Silverstone Podiatry.
