Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive, out-patient alternative to surgery for those suffering from many bone, joint and tendon disorders. ESWT (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy) sends acoustic shock waves into bone or soft tissue, in effect reinjuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up scarring that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. The controlled reinjuring of tissue allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. The resulting revascularization leads to faster healing and often a return to pre-injury activity levels.
The service provided uses an evidence based, research proven Swiss Dolocast Radial Shockwave machine. It is a safe, non-surgical alternative option proven to be effective in treating chronic tendon injuries such as heel pain, rotator cuff tendonopathy, tennis/golfer’s elbow, patellar tendonopathy, Osgood Schlatters, Achilles tendonitis, greater trochanteric bursitis of hip, plantar fasciitis and trigger points.
