Shockwave

Shockwave therapy is a form of treatment that uses sound waves transmitted through the skin into painful tissues.  The shockwaves are produced by a change in pressure that sends energy output from an applicator through the body tissues. 

Shockwave is a non-invasive form of treatment that has been around for 20 years now, initially being used to treat kidney stones. Shockwave produces acoustic waves that help in treating a number of musculoskeletal conditions, especially in those chronic situations termed tendinopathy. The energy that is produced by the acoustic waves promotes blood flow, regeneration of tissue, and collagen production. 

Shockwave is great for treating:

  • Jumper’s knee
  • Tennis elbow
  • Heel spur
  • Chronic tendinopathy 
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints)
  • Calcification
  • Hip pain
  • Plantar fasciitis 
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Trigger points
  • Acute muscle cramps
