What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), also known as Radial Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive modality to treat chronic pain, tendinitis, and bursitis. It's a low-risk and highly effective treatment that can be safely used in individuals of all ages. It involves delivering high-frequency sound waves to the injured area and providing immediate relief without side effects.
Shockwave Therapy is beneficial for anyone who has a painful condition that has grown worse over time without a dramatic injury or impact. It is especially helpful for chronic ailments that haven't improved with physiotherapy, injections, massage, or other forms of therapy. Many different types of people can benefit from this treatment, including athletes who spend a lot of time exercising, "aging" bodies that are starting to ache from wear and tear, and people who carry out repeated tasks at work or in their daily lives.
What Conditions can Shockwave Therapy treat?
Plantar Fasciitis / Heel Spurs (Foot or heel pain)
Achilles Tendinopathy/Tendinitis (Pain at the back of the heel)
Calcific Tendinitis of the Shoulder
Patellar Tendinitis (Pain below the kneecap)
Lateral Epicondylalgia (Tennis Elbow)
Lateral Hip Pain (Often referred to as Bursitis)
What should I anticipate from a shockwave treatment?
The treatment takes about 5 minutes to complete. We apply a gel to the area we're treating and apply gentle to moderate pressure with the applicator. The shockwaves may cause you to experience some mild discomfort, but we can change the machine's settings to make it more tolerable for you. You should see the treated area turning pink as blood flow to it increases. The majority of the time, the treatment will cause your discomfort to diminish quickly.
An average of 3-5 treatments spaced 7–10 days apart are required for satisfactory results. Although it will differ depending on the person and the kind of injury, this is a good estimate.
