Shockwave therapy is a medical device used to treat and relieve the pain associated with soft tissue conditions such as tendonitis and heel spurs. This innovative Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy System has provided pain relief in up to 90% of the patients treated in European health centres and is now available at our affiliated clinics. Unlike other therapies, the low energy Sonocur treatment does not require a hospital stay or visit, invasive surgery or anesthesia.
During this treatment, an acoustic pulse is transmitted into the affected bone or soft tissue, reinjuring the area on a cellular level. The controlled reinjuring of tissue stimulates the body’s natural healing process resulting in faster healing and reduced pain.
Recent literature is currently showing a 75-95% success rate with such conditions as:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Tennis Elbow
- Jumper’s Knee
- Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
New medical advances also show promising results in promoting the recovery of non-healing ulcers. Shockwave is a non-invasive treatment that promotes and accelerates the recovery of injured tissue.
Our interdisciplinary team of physiotherapists, athletic therapists, chiropractors, pedorthists, chiropodists and massage therapists will use this modality to provide patients with the most effective care.
