Shockwave Therapy is a safe, effective and non-surgical technology utilizing high-energy, short wavelength sound waves, called shockwaves, to treat tendons, bone and periosteum (the pain sensitive membrane on bone). Healing effects include bone and tendon regeneration, increased blood vessel growth and a chemically induced decrease in pain and sensitivity of the pain receptors.
Research proves this modality is extremely effective for most near to bone tendonitis and more so than most of the alternatives. i.e.
- 90% improvement for Plantar Fasciitis (Journal of Orthopedic Research 2005)
- 91% improvement for Calcific Tendinitis (Journal of American Medical Association 2003)
Conditions that can be treated by Shockwave Therapy:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendonopathy
- Jumpers Knee
- Stress Fractures
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Calcific Tendinopathies
- Non Healing Ulcers
- Non Unions
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Scar Tissue Treatment
- Hallux Rigidus
- Non surgical treatment
- No side effects
- Accelerates healing
- No need for anaesthetic
- Affordable and effective
- Coverage available from most insurance companies
