SHOCK WAVE THERAPY
What Is It?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a form of physiotherapy that uses soundwaves to stimulate healing in the musculoskeletal system. It is used to treat chronic and acute pain without the need for painkillers or surgery.
Musculoskeletal pain, poor circulation, limited range of motion and soft tissue damage.
Almost anyone can receive shock wave therapy, and it’s especially useful for people with tendon or joint injuries, or people who have chronic tendon problems.
Indications include but not limit to: jumper’s knee, painful shoulder, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, heel spur, chronic tendinopathy, calcifications, hip pain.
Treatment is quick; it is non-invasive and side effects are minimal. Most patients report a quick response to treatment.
