Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a new treatment which uses shockwaves to treat chronic painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system.

This intense but very short energy wave can be used in the treatment of conditions of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee, but is most often used to treat foot problems, typically:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendinitis or Tendinosis
  • Calcific Tendinitis or Tendinosis
  • Connective tissue pain or degeneration
  • Muscle and Joint pain and injuries
  • Morton’s Neuromas

 

It is also used to treat bone conditions, encouraging healing in stress fractures, Avascular Necrosis, slow healing bone and non-healing bone.

Treatment Protocols

Most conditions will need an average of 3 treatments. However, some conditions take more treatments, especially if a large area is involved. If this is deemed necessary then we will develop tailored price plans. This method ensures patients get the best quality care while cost remains affordable.
