Shock Wave Therapy

Shock Wave Therapy

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a treatment used in physical therapy, using pulses of mechanical energy, similar to soundwaves, causing microtrauma which stimulates new cell growth.

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is used to treat a growing number of tendon, joint and muscle conditions, including Achilles and Patellar tendinopathy, and Plantar fasciitis.

Double blind studies produce excellent results, patients reporting reduced pain and faster healing, without significant adverse side effects.

ESWT is also used to promote bone healing and treat bone necrosis, It is an effective alternative to surgical treatment of non-healing fractures.​
