Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), commonly known as shockwave therapy, is a non-surgical procedure used to treat chronic conditions of the musculoskeletal system.Read More
It utilizes mechanical energy to stimulate a change in the tissues and is a safe and effective treatment. A session of shockwave therapy can take as little as 20 minutes, though the initial consultation involves a full discussion of patient history and treatment options.
Shockwave therapy uses an acoustic wave to carry energy to the targeted pain regions of myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The kinetic energy aimed at the body, generated by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator, the application of which activates the regenerative process within the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
This treatment is commonly used for conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, shoulder tendonitis, and other tendon problems.Read More
Shockwave therapy can also be used to stimulate stress-fracture healing, resolve chronic bursitis, and in the treatment of resistant conditions.
Other conditions that can benefit from shockwave therapy include:
Shockwave therapy accelerates the generation of collagen, which is necessary for myoskeletal and ligament repair.Read More
Shockwave therapy forces the treated area to create new tissue cells for several weeks after treatment. Mild discomfort can occur in the treated area, yet some patients report a complete cessation of pain following the first treatment.
