SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Shockwave Therapy @ Saltfleet Clinic

Radial ShockWave Therapy (RSWT) is a non-invasive treatment involving the transmission of air pressure waves into soft tissue structures. The ShockWave machine utilises a compressor to create the shock (air pressure) wave, and a transmitter to transfer the wave into the tissue. RSWT is beneficial for chronic soft tissue injuries and tendon issues that have been unresponsive to regular treatments.

ShockWave Therapy increases circulation and metabolism of the treated tissue, promoting healing. Air pressure waves help to decrease muscle tone and deactivate trigger points, whilst promoting turnover of old, damaged cells to be replaced with new, healthy cells.

ShockWave Therapy can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Achilles tendinopathy

  • Trochanteric (hip) bursitis

  • Patellar tendinopathy

  • Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)

  • Medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)

  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy

  • Gluteal tendonitis

  • Shoulder calcification

  • Muscular trigger points

 

ShockWave Therapy is generally performed 4-6 times, with appointments 7-10 days apart. Embedded longstanding issues may require longer timeframes before resolution is achieved. 

Please note side effects of RSWT may include discomfort/pain at treatment site, minor bruising, redness, minor swelling. Discomfort/pain generally eases after 48 hours but may last up to five days. Cold packs can be applied after the treatment if required.
