Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-surgical treatment, and works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within a damaged tendon or ligament.
Shockwave Therapy is an extremely effective way of treating conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Shoulder pain, Rotator Cuff Injuries, Tennis elbow, Achilles tendonopathy, Trochanteric bursitis as well as many other stubborn conditions.
Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment, and works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. This increases the blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing, and decreasing local factors which can cause pain.
Following a thorough verbal and physical assessment your physiotherapist will discuss whether ESWT may be beneficial for you. Shockwave can be particularly successful in cases where injuries have failed to respond to other forms of physiotherapy or more conservative treatments.
