Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Shockwave therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that has been proven to be effective in treating a range of lower-limb and foot conditions. This non-invasive treatment uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate healing and relieve pain in damaged tissue. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your lower-limb or foot, shockwave therapy may be the solution you need to get back on your feet and back to your regular activities.
Shockwave therapy is often used to treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and shin splints. These conditions can cause significant pain and discomfort, making it difficult to perform daily activities. Shockwave therapy works by stimulating the body’s natural healing process, increasing blood flow to the affected area and reducing inflammation.
One of the primary benefits of shockwave therapy is that it is a non-invasive treatment that does not require surgery or medications. This means that patients can avoid the potential side effects and risks associated with these treatments. Additionally, shockwave therapy is often a more affordable option compared to surgery or ongoing medication use.
Another benefit of shockwave therapy is that it can provide rapid relief from pain. Many patients experience significant improvement in their symptoms after just a few sessions. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have been dealing with chronic pain for an extended period of time and are looking for a quick and effective solution.
In addition to pain relief, shockwave therapy can also help improve mobility and range of motion. This can be particularly beneficial for athletes or individuals who lead an active lifestyle. By reducing pain and inflammation and improving blood flow to the affected area, shockwave therapy can help patients get back to their regular activities more quickly and with less discomfort.
Clinically proven Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is clinically proven and recognised by the top orthopaedic hospitals and is used by high profile professional sports bodies.
