Five Conditions that Benefit from Shockwave Therapy

To some, Shockwave Therapy or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) may sound intimidating, but it’s actually quite simple and not at all scary. Shockwave Therapy uses transient pressure oscillations (pressure waves) to help break down scar tissue and adhesions, stimulate circulation and stimulate natural cellular healing activity.

When compared to other types of treatment, Shockwave Therapy has many advantages, including faster healing times, reduced pain symptoms and an improvement in function. Many of which, can be seen in just a few sessions. However, results can vary depending on the severity of the conditions and chronicity.

Although Shockwave Therapy can be used to treat a number of conditions, here are five painful conditions that Shockwave Therapy is proven to quickly and effectively treat.

  1. Foot & Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis) 
  2. Shoulder Pain (Rotator Cuff Tendonitis)
  3. Elbow Pain (Epicondylitis)
  4. Hip Pain (Trocanteritis)
  5. Lower leg & ankle pain (Achilles Tendonitis)
