Shockwave Therapy for chronic foot pain, achilles pain and tennis elbow
What is 'Shockwave Therapy'?
Shockwave Therapy delivers a radial shockwave through the surface of the skin to the injured tissue. This shockwave initiates an inflammation-like response in the injured tissue and accelerates the healing process by regenerating blood vessels. It also provides pain relief for the patient.
Now patients that have been suffering for years with chronic pain in their feet and ankles may be successfully treated with 'Shockwave Therapy' using the latest high-tech non-surgical equipment.
'Shockwave Therapy' can be useful in treating plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, tennis and golfers elbow, calcific tendonitis of the shoulder, greater trochanter pain and patellar tendonopathy.
Treatment is simple and can only take minutes. There is no need for an anaesthetic or lengthy rehabilitation.
