What is Shockwave Therapy and its Benefits
Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
This innovative Shock Wave Therapy System has provided pain relief in up to 90% of the patients treated in European health centres and is now available at Parkway Back and Foot Clinic. Unlike other therapies, the treatment does not require a hospital stay or visit, invasive surgery or anesthesia.
There are no side effects with this non-surgical treatment. Shockwave treatments are non-invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the body. With this innovative therapy approach, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be healed systematically.
Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
An injury is often associated with chronic pain and could affect the quality of a person’s life by preventing him from performing usual activities. Shockwave therapy helps treat joint pain and injured soft tissues quickly.
The beauty of Shock Wave Therapy is that the results are effective without the need for painkillers which bring their own set of complications and side-effects. We concentrate on the trigger points in the back, neck, and shoulders that are the common causes of pain. The acoustic energy that is delivered in shocks unblocks the calcium pump and releases the trigger points, releasing the pain your body has been holding onto.
If you suffer from any of the following conditions, SWT may be a successful treatment for you:
• Achilles Tendinopathy
• Stress Fractures
• Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
• Trigger Point Therapy
• Hamstring Sprain / Strain
• Sports Injuries such as Golfers Elbow and Tennis Elbow
Knee Injury and other sports injuries
