Shockwave Therapy (SWT)


Shockwave therapy is a new technique used for treatment of conditions such as tennis elbow, jumper's knee, calcification of shoulder tendons (shoulder pain) and Achilles tendon pain. Conditions which are otherwise difficult to treat with conventional physiotherapy.

What happens during shockwave therapy treatment?

During Shockwave therapy, a high-intensity sound wave interacts with the tissues of the body. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects such as neovascularisation ingrowth, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up.

This treatment is for chronic tendonitis without medication or surgery, where successful results are achieved after a few treatment sessions.

Shockwave Therapy May Erase Cellulite

Certain Physicians are saying Shockwave Therapy is smoothing their patients' skin and eliminating cellulite without any side effects. This treatment is new and exciting, yet surprisingly affordable.

Shockwave therapy shoots sonic waves into the skin to break up fat deposits, utilizing the same technology used to destroy kidney stones. Patients must receive six appointments during a three-week period in order to see results.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has gained a firm foothold in almost all countries of the world. After having proved its efficacy in the disintegration of kidney stones for many decades, ESWT has also made its way into orthopaedics, surgery, rheumatology and rehabilitation during the last few years.
