Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy [ESWT]

What is ESWT?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is a new non-surgical procedure for soft tissue. Used in orthopaedics and sports medicine it is recognised as a treatment for a number of musculoskeletal conditions including:

• Heel Pain

• Shoulder Pain

• Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow

• Achilles Pain

• Hip Pain

• Jumper’s Knee Patella Tendonitis

• Shin Splints

• Neck and Lower Back Pain (Trigger Points)

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Treatment

ESWT uses shock waves to stimulate healing. It offers advantages over surgery as it is non-invasive with fewer potential complications and a faster return to normal activity.

Three treatments are performed at weekly intervals. Each treatment is simple with no injections. Your affected area is positioned against the head of the ESWT machine and a shockwave is delivered to the area. This is felt as a pulse.

I will be following up on some of my successes with ESWT over the next few months.
