Extracorporeal shock wave therapy
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a safe and non-invasive treatment for injured soft tissue, directing a series of energetic mechanical shock waves to the area that needs treatment. The shockwaves break down injured tissue and create an inflammatory response, increasing the blood flow in the impact area and accelerating the body's healing process.
Conditions suitable for Shockwave treatment:
Tennis / Golfer’s elbow
Calcific tendinosis of the shoulder
Trochanteric bursitis – gluteal tendinosis
Medial tibial stress syndrome
Most patients begin to enjoy pain relief after their first treatment. However, three to four treatments are usually recommended, with significant clinical benefits usually seen six to eight weeks after treatment.
Joint Care offers both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided injections.
