Shock Wave Therapy

 Shock Wave Therapy is successfully used for the treatment of muscle/ tendon tissue and tendon insertions. Shock waves are high energy sound impulses. The energy released in the treatment area improves the metabolism and blood circulation, thereby stimulating the body’s self healing repair mechanism.

Shock Wave Therapy has many advantages. A few examples are:

● Short treatment time per session

● High percentage of successful treatments after only a few sessions

● Makes medication and/or surgery irrelevant The effectiveness of Shock Wave Therapy is sufficiently proven by scientific research.

Shock wave therapy can treat verity of conditions such as:  

  • Radial and ulnar epicondylitis

  • Calcific tendonitis of the shoulder / shoulder problems

  • Status post muscular injuries

  • Chronic patellar tendonitis
    Jumper's knee

  • Achillodynia

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Heel spurs

  • Myofascial trigger point treatment e.g. neck

  • Myofascial trigger point treatment e.g. back, muscular back pain

  • Bursitis Trochanterica

  • Periostitis / shin splints (status post strain)

What to expect:

Shock Wave Therapy purposefully creates an inflammatory response in injured soft tissue, so you may also experience mild discomfort following treatment. Patients should not apply ice or take anti-inflammatory medication after Shock Wave Treatment, as this inflammatory healing response shouldn't be reduced.
