Which Conditions Can Shockwave Help Treat?

Just about anyone with soft tissue injuries or musculoskeletal pain syndromes may benefit from shockwave therapy. Shockwave Therapy is often referred to as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT).

Shockwave is a non-invasive therapy with very few side effects and good results, compared to steroid injections.

Shockwave treatment can help upper and lower limb tendon injuries, stress or overuse injuries, joint capsule problems, plantar fasciitis, shin splints and iliotibial band syndrome. The benefits of shockwave therapy are not limited to the list of common conditions described below.

Shockwave therapy can be an important part of the package of treatments we provide that seek to speed up recovery: exercise therapy and possibly other ‘hands-on’ treatments will be combined to ensure optimal recovery and preferably prevent a recurrence.

Here is a list of some of the common conditions where we use shockwave to seek to aid more rapid recovery.

  • Tennis elbow
  • Shoulder tendinitis
  • Knee Pain (tendinitis)
  • Jumpers knee (patella tendinitis)
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Gluteal tendinitis
  • ITB
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel pain

If you would like to understand whether Shockwave treatment could help you get back to doing those things you love to do and help you recover- speak to one of our team who will be happy to discuss the benefits of this great treatment with you.
