Service Description

Shockwave therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment of injured soft tissues, specifically tendon and plantarfascia when an injury reaches a chronic non-healing state. A safe alternative to surgery or steroid and other treatment injections, shockwave therapy is clinically proven to stimulate metabolic reactions. It activates the healing process by provoking an acute phase of healing and by stimulating enzymes involved in reducing pain, resulting in a high rate of success in treating these difficult to treat, often chronic and very painful injuries. The application of shock waves, known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is an evidence-based, effective treatment for plantarfascitis and most tendon conditions including achilles, hamstring, patellar, gluteal and tennis elbow tendinopathies. How shockwave therapy can work for you: The therapy targets your injured tissue with specially calibrated shockwaves which create tiny cavitation bubbles in the tissue which then burst and stimulate blood flow, stem cell activity and pain reducing enzymes in the treated area. The application of shockwaves gives pain relief after treatment as well as stimulating long-term tissue normalisation and regeneration. Patients receiving shockwave therapy can expect: - A reduction of pain felt by nerve fibres. - An increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues. - Stimulation of the healing process triggered by stem cell activation.
