Shockwave Therapy – is it for me?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is an effective, evidence-based, non-surgical treatment for chronic musculoskeletal conditions (longer than 3 months). If conservative treatment (i.e. steroid injections, anti-inflammatory medications, splints, braces, orthotics, or physiotherapy) has not proven effective, then ESWT may be a good option for you

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Shockwave speeds up healing and recovery times. Using a handpiece device, a wave of energy is applied outside the body, directly over the affected area. The “shockwave” energy creates microscopic injuries which stimulates a cellular response inside the body to repair the damaged tissues and regenerate healthy ones.

What conditions can be treated with Shockwave Therapy?

  • Plantar fasciopathy ( heel pain)
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Patellar and hamstring tendinopathy
  • Hip bursitis and gluteal tendinopathy
  • Calcific tendinopathy of the shoulder
  • Tennis and golfer`s elbow

What are the benefits?

  • Non-invasive
  • Reduces pain
  • Increases joint mobility
  • Stimulates the natural body healing process
  • Can be an alternative to surgery

How many treatments do you need?

While significant benefits can be achieved in some patients after the first visit, other patients may require additional treatments, especially if the damage is extensive or very deep. In those cases, multiple treatments can be administered at about a week apart to promote and continue the healing processes over time. Studies recommend between 3 and 5 sessions. Most patients experience maximum healing benefits within about two months of treatment. Shockwave therapy doesn’t require any downtime, so patients are able to enjoy their normal activities throughout their course of treatment.

Is shockwave therapy a good choice for all patients?

Because it’s non-invasive, has a success rate of 70-80%for most musculoskeletal conditions and promotes natural healing, shockwave therapy can be ideal for most patients. Prior to therapy, a thorough assessment will be performed to determine if a different course of care might be a better option.

Is there clinical evidence supporting use of shockwave?

There is a significant body of evidence supporting the use of shockwave therapy in many common conditions.

The use of shockwave therapy for tendon issues is well supported by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). NICE provides national guidance and advice to improve health and social care in both NHS and private practice.

It provides evidence based recommendations to guide best practice within healthcare. NICE have produced guidelines for the use of shockwave in the treatment of Achilles tendinopathy, plantarfascitis and calcific tendinopathy.
