Shockwave Therapy for Chronic Injuries
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy treatment (ECSWT) is a highly effective treatment available for patients with chronic tendon disorders. It is a non-surgical treatment that works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. This increases blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing and decreasing local factors that cause pain.
Evidence shows an overall result rate of 77% for chronic conditions that have not been cured with other kinds of treatment.
Conditions recommended include plantar fascitis, calcific tendonitis, tennis and golfer’s elbows, achilles tendinopathy, trochanteric bursitis, patella tendinopathy and shin splints (MTSS).
Physiolistic is one of the few clinics to have both focus and radial Shockwave machines and our physios have undertaken specialised training in their use. There is an additional charge for the use of ECSWT.
