Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a multidisciplinary device used by podiatrists and other sports physicians with the main benefits being fast pain relief and restoration to function and mobility. It is used for persistent soft tissue injuries such as;

  • Plantar fasciosis (heel pain)

  • Chronic achilles tendonitis

  • Shin splints

  • ITB friction syndrome (ITBFS)

  • Morton’s neuroma

that do not respond to conservative treatments such as icing, heat, stretching, strengthening, massage, supportive footwear and orthotics.

ESWT delivers low and high energy shock (acoustic) waves to the injured tissue via a hand-held probe. These non-invasive shockwaves which activate the body’s self healing process to reduce pain by:

  • Increasing metabolic activity through improved blood circulation and formation of new blood vessels

  • Accelerates the healing process through cell regeneration

  • Stimulates nerves to help decrease sensitivity in the area of pain

  • Break up calcification within tendons which is reabsorbed by body

  • Has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect
