What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, or (ESWT) is an 18-minute non-surgical procedure used to cure chronic Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow, Shoulder Tendonitis, and other chronic muscular or tendon injuries.

Does Shockwave Therapy work?

Whilst it is recommended that patients receive a minimum of 3 shockwave treatments, the results can be amazing. On average, patients see a reduction in pain of 92% with only one treatment.

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

During the shockwave treatment, you lie back comfortably with the area to be treated, resting on the machine on a soft, water-filled membrane. The technician uses an ultrasound scan to view and target the damaged location. During the treatment, you will hear repetitive clicking sounds.

Is Shockwave Therapy painful?

Shockwave therapy can cause some discomfort during the treatment, as it involves the application of pressure waves to the affected area. However, the level of pain experienced can vary depending on individual sensitivity and the specific condition being treated. Some patients may feel mild to moderate discomfort or a sensation similar to deep tissue massage. Your therapist will work with you to ensure your comfort during the therapy session.

Is shockwave therapy safe?

Shockwave therapy is generally safe when performed by trained professionals. Potential side effects are rare and temporary, such as skin redness or discomfort. Discuss your suitability for the treatment with a qualified healthcare provider.

What conditions can be treated with shockwave therapy?

Shock wave can effectively treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Injuries involving attachment points for tendons and ligaments in major joints such as the plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, shoulder, elbow, and knee are common areas for shockwave treatment.

How many sessions of shockwave therapy are usually required?

For effective results, we recommend patients have a minimum of 3-5 sessions. The total amount will depend on the injury.

When should I consider Shockwave Therapy?

If you have had your condition for more than six months and have tried three conservative therapies with no results, do not wait. Continuously using degenerative tendon tissue can cause further damage. When the condition progresses to a rupture, ESWT is no longer an option, and you will have no treatment alternative but invasive surgery.

Plantar Fasciitis

Shockwave Therapy is suitable for treating Plantar Fasciitis, an injury often caused by overuse of the soft tissue that connects the heel to the toes. Injuries here can be caused by sports activities such as running, football, and rugby, and walking in shoes that don't fit your feet.

Glutes Medius Tendinopathy

ESWT is suitable to treat lateral hip pain (also known as Glutes medius tendinopathy. This is where the muscle attaches to the prominent part of your Femur found on the side of your hip. Whilst it isn't evident why we get an injury in that part, ESWT is a game-changer to recover full function.

Achilles Tendinopathies

Shockwave Therapy has proven effective in treating insertional and mid-portion Achilles Tendinopathies, an overuse injury of the Achilles tendon, the band of tissue that connects calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone. This injury is common among runners and tennis players.

Tennis Elbow & Strain

ESWT is proven effective in treating Tennis Elbow or lateral elbow pain. Injuries here can occur through overuse of the soft tissue that stabilises the elbow when at work, in everyday life and in sports such as tennis, squash and CrossFit.
