Shockwave
Therapy

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for musculoskeletal pain and chronic tendon issues.

Therapeutic Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) works by applying focussed energy to an area of pain or injury. Basically by injuring a painful area, what will trigger a new inflammatory response in the tissues to stimulate regeneration and recovery.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy was discovered during World War II and was first established in the 1970s for the treatment of kidney stones (lithotripsy) breaking them into smaller pieces, so they can be passed through urinary tracts and do not cause obstruction. 

During this time it was noted that patients often showed improvement in other symptoms of injury and so it was then developed for use in musculoskeletal medicine.

Until now, this method plays a key role in many top sports clinics and orthopedic medicine.
