SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY 

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modern and highly effective treatment method that accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.

HOW SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WORKS

High-energy sound wave pulses are applied into the painful areas of the body. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that heal your bone and connective tissue.

WHO NEEDS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?

In many instances, shockwave therapy is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.

 

Conditions that shockwave can be used:

  • scar tissue

  • jumper’s knee

  • calcific rotator cuff tendinitis

  • trigger point therapy

  • non unions

  • hallux rigidus

  • shoulder pain

  • tennis elbow

  • patellar tendonitis

  • plantar fasciitis/heel spur

  • shin splints

  • stress fractures

  • enhancement of bone healing

  • muscle and connective tissue
