Shock Wave Therapy

A non-invasive solution that accelerates the recovery from injured tissue.

Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. They occur in the atmosphere, for example when lightning strikes, or when aeroplanes break through the sound barrier. In the medical world, shock waves have been employed since around 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones. For pain and soft tissue therapy, shock wave energy is conducted from the place of generation to the painful body regions where it accelerates the healing process by activating the body’s self healing powers (inflammation). The process stimulates metabolism and enhances blood circulation, damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. The following are some disorders that can be treated with Shock Wave Therapy:

Tennis or Golfers elbow

Patellar tendonitis (jumpers knee)

Shin pain / shin splints

Chronic neck, shoulder and back pain

Shoulder pain, e.g. rotator cuff tendonitis / bursitis / impingement

Achilles tendon pain

Heel pain

Plantar Fasciitis

Muscle tension caused by muscular trigger points

Knee osteoarthritis

How successful is the therapy?

After only 3 sessions, over 80% of patients report painlessness or significant pain reduction.

How is the therapy performed?

Therapist localizes pain region by palpation and orthopaedic testing. Skin gel is applied to the treatment area to allow shock waves to transmit into the body. Shock wave generator is then put on the painful spot.

What is the duration and frequency of therapy?

The therapy session takes between 5 – 10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. In general an average of 2 to 3 therapy sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.
