Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), or shockwave therapy, is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy shockwaves to stimulate healing and promote tissue regeneration. This cutting-edge technology has shown remarkable success in addressing various musculoskeletal conditions.

Shockwave therapy is a versatile device employed across various disciplines, such as physiotherapy, muscular health, sports medicine, and veterinary medicine. Its main objective is the swift alleviation of discomfort and restoring mobility. As a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t necessitate painkillers, it stands out as an ideal option for expediting recovery and addressing various symptoms contributing to acute or chronic pain.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

The shockwaves generated during the therapy stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. They enhance blood circulation, boost cellular metabolism, and promote the development of fresh blood vessels and connective tissue. This comprehensive approach accelerates healing and reduces pain.

Conditions Treated with Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is effective in treating a range of conditions, including:

Chronic Tendonitis

Address persistent tendon inflammation and pain.

Plantar Fasciitis

Relieve foot pain associated with inflammation of the plantar fascia.

Calcific Shoulder Tendonitis

Break down calcium deposits, causing shoulder pain.

Elbow Tendinopathy (Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow)

Alleviate pain in the elbow caused by overuse.

Muscle Strain

Accelerate recovery from muscle strains and injuries.
