What is Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a safe, minimally invasive therapeutic modality that is used to effectively treat a growing number of tendon, joint and muscle conditions. These conditions are usually chronic long term injuries which cause considerable pain such as Tennis Elbow, Golfers Elbow, Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis and Myofascial Trigger Points.

Shockwave therapy works through the application of mechanical pressure pulses that disrupt the tendon or soft tissue area. The pulses stimulate an increase in blood supply to the damaged area thereby speeding up the recovery process.
