Shockwave therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment of injured soft tissues, specifically tendon and plantar fascia when an injury reaches a chronic non-healing state. Its main benefits are that it is fast pain relief, restores mobility and speeds up recovery.
It comes highly recommended by healthcare specialists as a safe alternative to surgery and is the go-to treatment for injuries such as plantar fasciitis, patella tendinopathy, tennis elbow, shoulder pain, heel spurs, shin splints, hip pain, plus much more.
Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to the painful areas and tissues with sub-acute, sub-chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues resulting in a high rate of success in treating these difficult to treat, often chronic and very painful injuries.
Patients receiving shockwave therapy can expect:
- A reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
- An increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
- Stimulation of the healing process triggered by stem cell activation
What happens when I have shockwave therapy?
A contact gel will be applied to the area of pain and the shockwave treatment device is applied to the affected area. The shockwaves are transmitted through the skin into the injured tissue. The shock provokes the body to respond to this controlled trauma by increasing blood circulation, triggering stem cell activation and enzyme production in the injured tissue which promotes and accelerates healing while reducing pain.
