Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy- ESWT) is a great evidence-based and cost-effective treatment for tendon and soft tissue problems throughout the body.

The main benefits of this safe, non-invasive treatment are pain relief and restoration of function. Shockwave therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment modality for a range of common tendon complaints including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy and tennis elbow among many others.

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Shockwave therapy uses a special medical device to deliver acoustic energy through the skin to the injured part of the body. These are audible, low-energy sound waves, which increase the blood flow to the injured area.

blood flow to the injured area. These shockwaves cause controlled micro-trauma which encourages the body to respond by increasing the circulation and metabolism in the affected area accelerating the body’s own healing response.

Although discomfort may be noticed during treatment, the shockwaves will work to desensitize nerve endings which will often give an immediate reduction in pain levels.

What is Shockwave Therapy used for?

Shockwave therapy is an effective treatment option for a variety of conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow 
  • Hip bursitis
  • Calcific tendinopathy
  • Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Patellar tendinopathy
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Bone injuries such as stress fractures and non-union fractures

Is there clinical evidence supporting the use of Shockwave Therapy?

There is a significant amount of evidence supporting the use of shockwave therapy in many common conditions. For more information, please use the links below which will direct you to the National Institute of Health where supporting evidence can be found about Shockwave Therapy.

In summary, shockwave therapy significantly reduced the pain that accompanies tendinopathies and improves functionality and quality of life.
