Shockwave Therapy is a revolutionary rehab technique that uses acoustic waves to effectively treat chronic pain such as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, calcific tendinosis of the shoulder, pain under strain at the knee cap (Patellar tendinosis, Jumper’s knee, quadriceps tendinosis) and painful inflammation under the heal (plantar fasciitis, heel spur, Achilles tendinosis and calcification), non responsive trigger points, delayed healing and non-union fractures. Radial shockwaves are high-energy acoustic waves that are transmitted through the surface of the spread radially (spherically) into the body.
With Shockwave Therapy the body responds with increased metabolic activity around the site of the pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process. The literature suggests total resolution of symptoms in most patients with three sessions of 5-10 minutes.
Marked pain relief is observed in most patients in just 8 to 10 days after the first treatment.
