Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

ESWT – a pioneering non-surgical treatment for chronic pain.

Shockwave Therapy

ESWT is a fast and effective, specialised, non-invasive treatment where a series of high energy impulses are delivered to the injured area. It is a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers, and is ideal to speed up recovery and cure acute or chronic pain.

How does it work?

The treatment produces an inflammatory response. The body responds by increasing metabolic activity around the site of pain. This stimulates and accelerates tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration.  Shockwave breaks down scar tissue and possibly calcification as well, having a PRO-inflammatory effect.

What are the benefits of ESWT?

Shockwave therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing process. There is actually an immediate reduction of pain and improved ease of movement. Secondary effects are minor. Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive alternative treatment to cortisone injections or even surgery to chronic conditions.
