Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves creating a series of low energy acoustic wave pulsations applied to the skin to treat chronic conditions, primarily those involving connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons that don't seem to respond to traditional forms of treatment. Many people report that their pain is reduced and mobility improved after the first treatment.
Shockwave therapy is most suited for people who have chronic (ie greater than six weeks) tendinopathies (commonly referred to as tendinitis) which haven't responded to other treatment; these include: tennis elbow, achilles, rotator cuff, plantar fasciitis, jumpers knee, calcific tendinitis of the shoulder. These could be as a result of sport, overuse, or repetitive strain.
Shockwave treatment is usually done once a week for 3-6 weeks, depending on results. The treatment itself can cause mild discomfort, but it only last 4-5 minutes, and the intensity can be adjusted to keep it comfortable.
Shockwave therapy has shown to effectively treat the following conditions:
Feet - heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis
Elbow – tennis and golfers elbow
Shoulder - calcific tendinosis of rotator cuff muscles
Knee - patellar tendonitis
Hip – bursitis
Lower leg - shin splints
Upper leg – IT Band syndrome
