Shockwave Therapy Treatments

What is Shockwave Therapy?

An extracorporeal radial shockwave is defined as a non-evasive, non-electrical high energy sound wave that passes through the body via a hand-held probe. The shock waves produce a rapid increase in blood circulation to the target area and will break down fibrous scar tissue which builds up over time, especially with chronic conditions.

Shockwave Therapy treatments

Shockwave Therapy uses an electrotherapy machine, which sends pulses through a treatment head, which induces an inflammation type response; this normalises tissue metabolism and accelerates healing.

 

Shockwave Treatments last approximately 10-15 minutes and most conditions require an average of 3 treatments at weekly intervals.  There may be some discomfort during shockwave treatment and immediately afterwards. Shockwave treatment responses are cumulative and results are most often felt after 3 sessions.

Typical Conditions treated with Shockwave Therapy:

  • Plantar fasciitis
     
  • Achilles tendonitis
     
  • Shoulder pain, e.g. calcific lesions of the rotator cuff and bony spurs
     
  • Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
     
  • Medial epicondylitis (golfer‘s elbow)
     
  • Patellar tendonitis (jumper‘s knee)
     
  • Tibial stress syndrome (shin pain)
     
  • Hip pain - trochanteric pain
     
  • Heel pain, heel spurs
