Frequently Asked Questions

Shockwave Therapy is commonly used to treat the following:

Plantar Fasciitis
Lateral/Medial elbow tendinopathy (tennis elbow/golfers elbow)
Frozen Shoulder. Plantar Fascia.
Heel Spurs.
Morton’s Neuroma.
Shoulder tendinopathies (Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinitis).
Hallux Rigid. Bursitis.
Achilles Tendinopathy.
Patellar tendinopathy (Jumpers Knee).
Anterior Tibial Syndrome.

A shockwave session lasts 10-15 minutes and will be used as a collaborative tool with the physiotherapy session that lasts 45 minutes.

This depends on the injury. Tendon injuries (eg tennis elbow) can tend to be stubborn injuries so may require 2-6 sessions combined with other forms of physiotherapy rehab to improve the injury. Other less severe injuries may require less and see improvement after 1 session.

Shockwave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis

The plantar fascia is a long, thin ligament present along the bottom of the foot that creates the arch of the foot. It extends from the heel bone, and then splits and fans out to attach itself to the toes. It acts as a shock absorber and supports the arch of your foot and functions like a bowstring to stiffen your foot while you walk.
Plantar fasciitis is a very painful and frustrating condition which often takes months and even years to resolve. The pain is caused because of inflammation of the plantar fascia and often causes a deep achy pain that can refer into the entire sole of the foot.

Plantar fasciitis is a painful foot condition where the plantar fascia becomes inflamed from overstretching or overuse, causing pain in the heel and bottom of the foot.
It can be caused by repetitive strain to the plantar fascia can result in tiny tears in the ligament, leading to pain and swelling, which can make walking difficult. It is one of the most common causes of heel pain and is seen in men and women, but may also occur in those who are constantly on their feet or active in sports and athletics.

Shockwave treatment, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), is a conservative procedure to treat plantar fasciitis of the foot, where shockwaves are passed through the heel to stimulate healing of the inflamed plantar fascia tissues. Shockwave treatment utilizes mechanical high energy sound waves, which function by improving blood flow to the inflamed area to speed up the healing process.
Shockwave treatment or ESWT is a non-invasive (no cutting of skin and no introduction of any medical device in the body) method of treating soft tissue injuries. Extracorporeal means outside the body. ESWT does not disintegrate tissue; rather it causes biological effects that help in tissue regeneration. ESWT reduces pain and sensitivity immediately by over-stimulating pain transmission nerves and triggers repair mechanisms.
