Shockwave Therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, is a therapeutic technique used to support the management of various musculoskeletal and soft tissue issues, including conditions such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. It is non-invasive with fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Shockwave Therapy uses acoustic waves which carry high energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes by ‘re-injuring’ the area affected in a controlled manner. This then encourages the area affected by forming new blood vessels, improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation, promoting collagen, and regeneration of tissues.
Before treatment can begin, the podiatrist will locate the area to be treated, then a gel will be applied to encourage the efficient transfer of energy of acoustic waves. Finally, the shockwave applicator will be used directly onto the area to be treated and the treatment can begin.
Shockwave Therapy can be used to support the management of various conditions, such as:
● Sports Injuries
● Musculoskeletal Issues
● Plantar Fasciitis
● Ligament/Tendon Repairs
