Shockwave therapy is a high-powered sound wave that creates a definitive reaction in the body. The reaction helps to greatly accelerate the body’s own healing process, and to kick-start healing where it may have been ‘stuck’ or slow to heal such as in tendinopathies.
Conditions where shockwave is particularly effective are:
- Any tendinopathy including;
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis elbow
- Golfers elbow
- Supraspinatus tendinopathy
We usually provide shockwave as part of a combination of treatments in order to give the best possible chance of a quick turnaround to recovery.
