Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and veterinary medicine. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain. It is very effective and helps where conventional therapy fails. Shockwave therapy is used to address a variety of conditions, but it is noted to be particularly effective for treating soft tissue injuries as well as bone and joint pain such as calcific tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. Shockwave therapy interact with tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration.

Shockwave therapy has also recently been found to promote the recovery of non-healing ulcers in addition to its already established place in treating tennis elbow, heel spurs and tendinosis of the knee and Achilles tendons

Shockwave therapy works by creating an acute, inflammatory response to the affected area, which in turn causes the body to react metabolically to the site, effectively stimulating the healing process

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Tennis / Golfer’s Elbow
