Shockwave Therapy is a non invasive technique to consider if all your other treatment options have failed. It can be used to treat longstanding pain and discomfort. A hand-held device is moved over a conductive gel on the skin, sending waves of energy to painful areas in the body. These mechanical pressure pulses – known as shockwaves – work by reinjuring/kick starting the healing process that has ceased in the effected tendons and tissues.

Shockwave Therapy is a non surgical option to shoulder pain, back pain, hip pain, knee and foot pain. From plantar fasciitis to chronic shoulder pain to hip bursitis, a treatment session only lasts 15 minutes and is grouped into a course of 3 sessions. Once the 3 appointments are completed you are reassessed and any further treatment needed is discussed. Even better, you can continue your daily life between sessions although your therapist may advise upon adapting your routine if they feel it is aggravating the condition you are seeking treatment for.

  • Understanding what Shockwave therapy/ ECSWT does?

    Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment in acoustic shockwaves pass through the skin via a device to the affected area, and is often used in the treatment of tendon pathology for a number of musculoskeletal conditions. The shockwaves stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms to facilitate tendon repair. A normal course of treatment will consist of three sessions with no more than a two week gap between sessions. More sessions may be a consideration for chronic conditions.
  • What are the side effects of the treatment?

    Most Common: A) Redness or bruising in the treated area. OR B) Skin damage OR C) An increase in pain in the treated area, this can be controlled with paracetamol, please do not take NSAIDs e.g. ibuprofen, naproxen. The practitioner providing the treatment will have checked your medical history to ensure that you are at minimal risk of any side effects. On the rare occasion there is the potential for tendon rupture.
  • Advice following treatment.

    Following ECSWT maintain ‘normal’ levels of activity. Do not do anything you normally would not do. Avoid sport, any other aggravating activities, or any activities, which stress the effected / treated area, particularly for the next 48 hours. Do not use ice on the treated area or take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDS) e.g. ibuprofen, naproxen, as these may reduce the therapeutic effect of ECSWT.
