“A new non-surgical, non-invasive alternative for pain relief and musculoskeletal repair.”
Shockwave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment option in orthopaedic and rehabilitation medicine. The term shockwave refers to mechanical pressure pulses that expands as a wave in the body.
How does it work?
Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, sub chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Shockwaves are characterised by jump change in pressure, high amplitude and non-periodicity.
The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter the of the applicator and further into the tissue
What areas can be treated?
The most common conditions that can be treated by Shockwave Therapy are:
- Tennis Elbow – Painful inflammation of the tendon attachment on the lateral elbow
- Shoulder Pain – Painful limitation of shoulder movement
- Golfer’s Elbow – Painful inflammation of the tendon attachment on the medial elbow
- Patella Tip Syndrome – Inflammation of the point of attachment of the patellar ligament
- Shin Splints – Inflammation of the tibial edge due to excessive strain
- Achilles Tendonitis – Painful irritation of the Achilles tendon
- Painful Heel / Plantar Fasciitis – Painful, mostly chronic inflammation of the heel
