Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive, clinically proven method of treating musculoskeletal disorders. It has been found to relieve most patients after just a few treatment sessions, even those suffering from chronic pain.
Administered via a probe held against the skin, radial shockwaves are high-energy soundwaves transmitted on to and passing through the skin, which spread outwards into the underlying tissues. This is believed to induce increased blood flow and metabolic activity around the site of pain accelerating the healing process.
Shockwave Therapy is used for the treatment of pain related to a number of chronic soft tissue conditions including:
- Tennis/Golfers Elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Patellar Tendinopathy
- Shin Splints
- and Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome,
or to assist with pain management.
