Shockwave Treatment

Shockwave Therapy

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!

Advantages

  • Proven to reduce pain by more than 60%
  • A new and exciting modality revolutionizing treatment outcomes
  • Fast & long-lasting pain relief
  • Non-invasive treatment – no surgery, no injections
  • Low-cost solution for chronic pain
  • Acoustic waves generated by the Shockwave trigger biological effects which lead to faster and long-term healing and regeneration of the tissue.
  • Shockwave therapy covers a wide range of indications.

The patient case

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.

Shockwave is particularly effective for the following indications:

  • Shoulder
    • Calcifying supraspinatus tendinitis
    • Subscapular tendinitis (Deltoid bursitis)
    • Frozen shoulder
    • Biceps tendinitis
  • Upper limbs
    • External humeral epicondylitis  (Tennis elbow)
    • Internal humeral epicondylitis  (Golf elbow)
    • Finger tendinitis
    • Trigger point
  • Lower limbs
    • Patellar tendonitis
    • Shin splints
    • Achilles tendinitis
    • Plantar fasciitis
    • Iliotibial band friction syndrome
    • Anserine buritis
    • Trigger point
  • Hip
    • The femoral greater trochanter pain syndrome
    • Piriformis Syndrome
    • Sciatica
    • Trigger Point
  • Torso
    • Erector spinae pain
    • Soft tissue pain
    • Trigger point
