Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modern and highly effective treatment method. Compressed air accelerates a projectile inside a guiding tube. When the projectile hits an applicator at the end of the tube, a pressure wave is produced and radially expands into the target tissue. When these high-energy sound waves are introduced into the body, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be healed.

Shockwave Therapy is used to treat:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s Knee)
  • Periarticular Shoulder Pain
  • Metatarsalgia (Pain in the Ball of Your Foot)
  • Calf Muscle Shortening
  • Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin Splints)
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Treatment of tendinopathies (tendon injuries)
  • Back pain
  • Hamstring pain
  • Myofascial trigger points (general muscle pain)
  • Bursitis
  • Hallux rigidus (stiff big toe)
  • Scar tissue
  • Calcific rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Heel spur
  • Stress fractures
  • Enhancement of bone healing
  • Calcific Tendonitis
