Shock Wave Therapy

A New Type of Non Surgical Treatment For Soft Tissue, Bone and Joint Pain.

How does the Radial Shockwave Device Work?

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) uses acoustic pulses to help to improve tissue healing and reduce pain. Pressure waves inside the shockwave unit are generated inside the unit balistically.   Compressed air rapidly speeds up a projectile in the transmitter of the unit.  The projectile is abruptly stopped by hitting the transducer head and the pressure wave is transmitted into the tissue using a water based gel.  Within the target tissue the mechanical energy is converted to chemical energy.

Pneumatically generated acoustic pulses (shockwaves) are introduced into the body over a large surface area. This high energy of acoustic waves is transmitted to the tissue on contact and spreads radially into the body. Controlled shock waves cause the body to respond at the lesion site, allowing for improved blood circulation, tissue regeneration and accelerated healing process.
Radial Shock Wave Therapy - a Non Invasive, Non Surgical solution that accelerates injured tissue recovery.
Radial Shock Wave Therapy can be an alternative to surgery, particularly for patients suffering from chronic pain.
The following pathologies can be successfully treated:

  • Heel Spur
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Tendinitis (Tennis and Golf Elbow)
  • Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinitis of the Shoulder
  • Shoulder Pain with/without restricted mobility
  • Jumper’s Knee/Patella Tendon Syndrome
  • Bursitis/Trochantheric Bursitis
  • Scar Tissue Treatment
  • Stress Fracture
  • Non Healing Ulcers
  • Sport related injuries

Advantages of Shock Wave Therapy

  • Solution for chronic pathologies
  • Avoid surgery
  • Non invasive method
  • No medical imaging needed
  • Anaesthesia is not required
  • Fast ambulant treatment
  • Quickly reduces pain
  • Only 3-6 treatments needed
  • No side effects
