Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and veterinary medicine. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain.

Mechanism of action

Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.

Indications

  • Jumper’s Knee
  • Painful Shoulder
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Heel Spur
  • Insertional Pain
  • Chronic Tendinopathy
  • Calcifications

Cost

Shockwave therapy is an adjunct to the hand therapy and its cost is incorporated into the cost of a regular occupational therapy treatment. There are no additional charges for the patient.
