What is shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy was introduced as a treatment form in the late 1990s, but it has been gaining more attention in the last 10–15 years. Shockwave therapy is a clinically proven therapy that produces excellent results in the treatment of various injuries and helps maintain a healthy lifestyle.
In today’s world, Shockwave Therapy is used for various tendon problems and is considered an effective, non-invasive treatment that promotes accelerated healing through a series of high-energy pulses that stimulate the affected area. There is no pain associated with Shockwave Therapy, only mild discomfort in the early stages, as the pulses are physical, not electrical.
Shockwave Therapy is used for various conditions:
- Knee pain, especially Jumper’s knee
- Shoulder pain
- Tennis elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Prolonged muscle pain,
- Chronic tendinopathy,
- Medial tibial stress syndrome,
- Tendon calcifications,
- Lateral hip pain and many other physical conditions
Unlike other forms of Physiotherapy, Shockwave Therapy is easy to apply and has proven beneficial in cases where patients saw little improvement using traditional forms of treatment.
