Shockwaves (also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy or ESWT) are sound waves that travel faster than the speed of sound and reach deep into the tissue which can provide immediate pain relief and range restoration while stimulating regenerative healing at the cellular level.

Initially used for breaking up kidney stones (lithotripsy), extracorporeal shockwaves were noted to increase the density of nearby bones without harming any of the surrounding healthy tissues.

Through research, it was discovered that shockwaves could stimulate stem cell growth and trigger a healing response in many different conditions. As a result, extracorporeal shockwave therapy is excellent for treating chronic tendinopathies and complex conditions such as:

Chronic Tendinopathies

  • Calcific tendinopathy of the shoulder
  • Lateral epicondylitis of the elbow (tennis elbow)
  • Greater trochanter pain syndrome
  • Patellar tendinopathy
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis, with or without heel spur
  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy without calcification
  • Medial epicondylitis of the elbow
  • Adductor tendinopathy syndrome
  • Peroneal tendinopathy
  • Plantar fibromatosis (Ledderhose disease)
  • De Quervain’s disease
  • Trigger finger
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Bone Pathologies

  • Adolescent Osgood Schlatter’s disease: Apophysitis of the anterior tibial tubercle
  • Tibial stress syndrome (shin splints)
  • Coccyx / Tailbone pain (coccydynia)

Skin Pathologies
