Shockwave therapy is a new non-invasive solution for chronic musculoskeletal pain and tendinitis and chronic tendinopathies.
Most common indications include: painful shoulder, epicondylitis (tennis elbow), low back pain, Achilles tendon pain, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis and trigger points.
During the therapy, a high intensity pressure wave interacts with the tissues of the body. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects including neovascularization, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen production and dissolution of calcium build-up. Stimulation of these biological mechanisms creates an optimal healing environment. As the injured area is returned to normal, functionality is restored and pain is relieved.
Shockwave treatments are performed by our physiotherapists, and invite you to inquire with your therapist as to whether shockwave would be a good fit for your recovery plan!
