Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy, ESWT, is an exciting new non-invasive procedure carried out in our out-patients department. The sound waves promoted during the treatment stimulate healing for many physical disorders including plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis and shoulder calcification.
"Fewer potential complications and a faster return to normal activity” FDA
No anaesthetic, medication or surgery is required when treating by ESWT. Treatment can usually begin straight away, with no need for other therapy.
How does ESWT work?
- A shockwave is generated in the hand piece.
- The shock wave is delivered to the tissue via a compressed air impulse exerted by the hand piece.
- The shockwave radiates out, extending to the entire area where pain occurs.
What’s the advantage of ESWT?
- No anaesthesia
- Non invasive treatment
- No medication
- No surgery
- Fewer complications
- Virtually painless after treatment
- Speedy recovery and quick results
- Fast treatment – 30 minutes per session, 3-4 sessions required
Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Treatment can help treat the following conditions:
- Tennis elbow - painful inflammation of the tendon attachment on the lateral elbow
- Shoulder tendinopathy especially calcific tendinitis - painful limitation of shoulder movement due to calcification
- Golfer’s elbow - painful inflammation of the tendon attachment on the medial elbow
- Painful trigger points - acute and chronic pain in the back, shoulder, neck etc due to permanently shortened and thickened muscles
- Jumper’s knee (patellar tendinopathy) - inflammation of the point of attachment of the patellar ligament
- Shin splints - inflammation of the tibial edge due to excessive strain
- Achilles tendinopathy - painful irritation of the Achilles tendon
- Plantar fasciitis (heel) - painful, mostly chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia
- Chronic enthesopathies - painful irritation of tendon attachments due to overexertion or improper strain, or due to degenerative processes
