Plantar Fasciitis and Shockwave Therapy

Adam Steinhardt has successfully treated hundreds of cases of chronic and debilitating heel pain. The most important first step is accurate diagnosis by Adam via clinical assessment and imaging. Shockwave therapy incorporation with stretching, footwear advice, massage and taping is proving to be very effective.


Shockwave therapy is the delivery of high intensity ultrasound to the painful heel or Achilles tendon. This provides an immediate reduction in pain and long term promotes healing of the tissues. Each treatment takes only a few minutes and as little as three to five applications are required to the injury site.​

Adam has years of experience using Shockwave therapy for the following conditions:

  • Plantar fasciitis/Heel Spurs

  • Achilles tendinopathy

  • Patella tendinopathy


With shockwave therapy you can avoid the following:

  • No surgery

  • No associated risks

  • No injections

  • No strong medication

  • No negative side effect

Biomechanical/Video Gait analysis and Orthotic Treatment

Making sure your feet are functioning pain free is of great importance. The foot is a complex structure and if your feet are not operating as well as they could the result is pain. The pain can be in the foot itself, however it can radiate to other parts of the body, such as the knee, hip and lower back. Conducting a thorough biomechanical assessment including video gait analysis is a crucial part of this.


At Adam Steinhardt Sports Podiatrist I can offer solutions to the pain, including prefabricated and custom foot orthoses.

Highly experienced with assessing and treating children's feet.


Adam Steinhardt is experienced in children’s podiatry. The growth and development of your children’s feet is important to us, so as a parent you can be confident that their feet are in good hands.

If you have tried conservative treatment methods and are not progressing, you may like to consider Prolotherapy Injection Therapy to help accelerate healing of damaged tissue.

Prolotherapy is an injection of a glucose and local anaesthetic solution to help speed up the healing process. The solution will assist in the reduction of inflammatory markers and laying down of new connective tissue in an injured area.

Prolotherapy is extremely safe and highly effective.
