Shockwave Therapy or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is safe and effective treatment for chronic pain and musculoskeletal injuries. As a relatively new treatment modality, it is proven and backed up by a number of successful clinical studies. A shockwave is an intense, short energy wave that travels faster than the speed of sound while extracorporeal refers to the transmission of shockwave from outside the body. Physiological effects of this treatment demonstrated positive effects on the healing of tissue and as a result, the technology has been utilized in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries even since!
The use of Shockwave Therapy has been found to successfully and safely treat a whole range of musculoskeletal conditions. It is supported by a wealth of clinical experience and scientific evidence. Shockwave is able to provide relief and healing even in chronic cases where the body has previously demonstrated as unwillingness or inability to do so by itself. Long term issues, such as plantar fasciitis, anserine bursitis and frozen shoulder can now be effectively improved in just a 3-4 treatments.
