Shockwave Therapy – AKA the jackhammer for tendons, Shockwave Therapy is a new technology whereby high energy shock waves are acoustically transmitted into target tissues to stimulate healing responses and pain relief.
There is a growing body of evidence to support the efficacy of Shockwave Therapy for chronic tendon problems, calcific tendonopathies as well as other soft tissue disorders and muscle pain.
Conditions which have been treated successfully include:
Tendon pain disorders
Heel pain – Plantar facsciitis/ fasciopathy, heel spur
Lateral hip pain – Gluteus medius tendonopathy/ bursitis
Shin Splints (medial tibial stress syndrome)
Tennis and golfers elbow (medial and lateral epicondylalgia)
Rotator cuff tendinopathy
