Extracorporeal shock wave therapy

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

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Achilles tendinosis/enthesopathy

  • Patella tendinosis

  • 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.

Joint Care has a dedicated physical therapy team.

Joint Care offers injection therapies that can be specifically targeted at the area of concern using ultrasound guidance.
