The shockwave therapy machine passes short, intense sound waves that travel faster than the speed of sound into affected tissues. This causes microtrauma, which increases blood flow and stimulates an acute inflammatory response, aiding the healing process.
Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) combines radial pressure waves, focused shockwave treatment and vibration therapy. It delivers simple, non-surgical treatment for chronic musculoskeletal problems, persistent pain or niggling joint issues, and it is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven, covered by private health insurers, recognised by the top orthopaedic hospitals and used by high profile professional sports bodies such as the English Institute of Sport
Shockwave therapy is a highly effective treatment for conditions such as Achilles Tendinopathy, Plantar Fasciitis and Calcific Tendonitis of the shoulder, to name a few. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that eliminates pain, restores full mobility and greatly improves quality of life, with beneficial effects typically experienced after only one or two sessions. The extracorporeal shockwave therapy or acoustic wave therapy is perfect for musculoskeletal conditions and pain relief. Increasing healthy blood flow, growth of new blood vessels and inflammation, shockwave technology is an effective treatment for chronic trochanteric pain syndrome.
