WHAT DAMAGED TISSUE MIGHT BENEFIT?
Shockwave Therapy accompanies alternative therapies and can be used soon after the occurrence of injury to stimulate immediate and ongoing repair, but is most effective with chronic injury where scar tissue and calcification might be present.
Shockwave treatment may be beneficial for the following injuries/tissue damage:
- Shoulder tendinitis and tennis elbow;
- Heel spurs and achilles tendonopathy;
- Degenerative disorders;
- Knee pain;
- Hip pain
SHOCKWAVE THERAPY TREATMENT
Shock waves are delivered through a device held lightly on the skin. The procedure is safe and treatment lasts for around 10 minutes. Discomfort levels are variable but usually last for only a short time.
Shockwave can be administered every 4-7 days and may require 2-3 treatments to see a change in symptoms. Other treatment regimes including strength work may need to continue in conjunction with Shockwave Therapy.
Physiotherapists, Sports Doctors, Podiatrists and GP’s can suitably assess your condition to determine if Shockwave Therapy can assist your pathology.Shockwave Therapy is available at Sydney Sports Medicine Centre
