Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy involves the use of a specialised device that delivers acoustic waves to targeted areas of the body. These waves are generated externally and transmitted through the skin to the underlying tissues. The controlled application of shockwaves triggers a cascade of biological responses, promoting the natural healing process and providing pain relief.

Conditions Treated with Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is effective in managing various musculoskeletal conditions. Some of the symptoms and conditions treated with shockwave therapy include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis: Heel pain, particularly in the morning or after prolonged periods of rest.
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): Pain and tenderness on the outer part of the elbow, often due to repetitive motions.
  • Achilles Tendinopathy: Pain, swelling, and stiffness in the Achilles tendon, commonly affecting runners and athletes.
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy: Shoulder pain and limited range of motion caused by inflammation or degeneration of the rotator cuff tendons.
  • Patellar Tendinopathy (Jumper’s Knee): Pain below the kneecap, usually associated with sports activities involving jumping or running.
  • Calcific Tendinitis: Calcium deposits in tendons, leading to localised pain and limited mobility.

Symptoms Treated by Shockwave Therapy

In addition to the specific symptoms mentioned above, shockwave therapy is used to treat various musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain: Persistent pain in muscles, tendons, and joints due to overuse, injury, or degenerative conditions.
  • Trigger Points: Sensitive areas of muscle that may cause localised pain or referred pain to other areas.
  • Scar Tissue and Adhesions: Fibrous tissue that forms following an injury, surgery, or repetitive stress, leading to pain and restricted movement.
  • Bone Fractures: Shockwave therapy may be utilised in the early stages of bone fracture healing to stimulate bone formation and enhance the recovery process.
