Shock Wave Therapy

Shock Wave Therapy at
Orthopaedic Sport Institute

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a treatment method that introduces high energy sound waves into painful areas of the body. This results in pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments and muscles i.e. speeds tissue repair and cell growth, produces an analgesic effect and helps restore tissue mobility.  Specific changes that occur include:

  • new blood vessel formation
  • reversal of chronic inflammation
  • stimulation of collagen production
  • breakdown of calcification in tissue
  • trigger point release

Shockwave can help treat many conditions, includng plantar fasciitis, heel and arch pain, achilles tendon pain, calcific tendinosis/tendonitis, shin pain/tibial stress syndrome, patellar tendonitis, chronic neck, shoulder and back pain, muscle tension (trigger points), tennis elbow, and wound healing.
