Fast and effective treatment for chronic tendon pain.

Shockwave Therapy

The effectiveness of the shockwave therapy treatment has been approved by both NICE (UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) and FDA (US Food and Drug Administration).

Shockwave therapy is an effective and non-invasive treatment of chronic soft tissue injuries such as tendons and plantar fascia. A safe alternative to surgery or steroid injections, shockwave therapy is clinically proven to stimulate
metabolic reactions to the cells and activate the healing process and helping in reducing pain, resulting in a highly successful treatment for these difficult to treat, often chronic and very painful

The application of shock waves, known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is an evidence-based, effective treatment for plantar fasciitis and most tendon conditions including Achilles, hamstring, patellar, gluteal and tennis elbow tendinopathies.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy or Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment for chronic tendon or soft tissue injuries. The therapy makes use of a non-electrical, powerful sound impulse that passes through your muscles to treat your injuries. The shockwaves increase the blood flow of the target area and break down the scar tissues that get built over time. This therapy effectively helps in cell regeneration and speed up the healing process resulting in decreased pain and improved mobility.

Shockwave therapy is considered to be a viable option for both athlete and nonathlete patients with chronic tendinopathy who didn’t respond well to the traditional treatments. Chronic
tendinopathy is characterized by chronic pain and pathological changes to a tendon.

Shockwave therapy is a drug free treatment, and it can be applied along with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to treat a wide range of chronic tendon conditions.

What happens during your appointment?

A hand piece, powered by compressed air, delivers rapid pulses of energy in the
form of radial pressure waves (shock waves) to the injured tissue. The shockwaves are felt as pulses which can be a little uncomfortable but not painful. Normally your first treatment will start with a low level of intensity and increase this to a point where you feel comfortable.

Many patients experience an improvement in symptoms almost immediately but usually it will take several weeks to respond. Shockwave therapy is not a quick fix treatment, and it should be followed by a 12-week rehabilitation program in order to achieve optimal results.

Types of Injuries Treated Through Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is an effective way to address chronic tendon issues along with soft tissue injuries. This non-traditional therapy is effective at healing issues like:

  • Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis (Tennis and golfer’s Elbow)
  • Patellar Tendinitis or Jumper’s Knee
  • Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome or Lateral Hip Pain
  • Achilles Tendinitis or Heel PainPlantar Fasciitis or Medial Arch Pain
  • Adhesive Capsulitis or Frozen ShoulderProximal Hamstring Tendinitis

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a non-surgical treatment option for tendinopathy conditions. It treats injuries through the entire musculoskeletal system. Shock wave therapy is mostly applied when a person fails to recover through traditional treatment methods. It is a highly recommended treatment for any persons looking for an effective recovery.

How many treatments do I need?


Shock-wave therapy treatments are usually performed at weekly intervals, depending on your injury.

Each treatment session takes about 20 minutes, and most patients need between 3 to 6 treatment sessions.
