Shockwave
Therapy

Shockwave is defined as a non-invasive, non-electrical, high energy sound wave that passes  through the body via a handheld probe. The shockwaves produce a rapid increase in blood circulation to the target area and will breakdown fibrous scar tissue which builds up over time, as well triggering stem cell activation to stimulate a healing response. This is especially relevant with stubborn chronic conditions.

The breakdown of scar tissue is the key to why shockwave therapy is so effective. Unlike normal elasticated tissue, scar tissue is non-elastic and will prevent normal movement and function, thereby weakening the unaffected tissue surrounding it, often causing further damage and pain. By increasing circulation and breaking down scar tissue, shockwave therapy will stimulate cell regeneration and promote normal healing and rapid reduction of pain. The normal function can then be restored.

What does Shockwave Therapy Treat

Shockwave therapy can be effective for a wide range of soft tissue and bony conditions. Here are some examples of conditions where shockwave has effectively treated and restored normal function:

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Shoulder pain, e.g. calcific lesions or tendinopathy of the rotator cuff and bony spurs

  • Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)

  • Medial epicondylitis (golfer elbow)

  • Patella tendinopathy (jumpers knee)

  • Hamstring tendinopathy

  • Tibial stress syndrome (shin pain) 

  • Achilles tendinopathy

  • Hip pain (greater trochanteric pain syndrome)

  • Heel pain, Heel spurs
