Shockwave Therapy is a highly, effective treatment to treat plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, shin pain and other tendon pathologies. The shockwave is a physical sound wave "shock,” not an electric one. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical option to treat chronic heel pain that is not responding to more conservative treatments. There are no side effects, you can walk in and walk out of the clinic and there is no time off work required.
How does it work?
- The treatment produces an inflammatory response. The body responds by increasing metabolic activity around the site of pain. This stimulates and accelerates the natural healing process (promotes the remodelling of dysfunctional collagenous tissues, such as tendinopathies, trigger points, muscle strains, etc.).
- Shockwaves break down scar tissue and/or calcification.
- Transmission of pain is diminished through neurological mechanisms (inhibition of pain receptors). It often provides an immediate analgesic effect on the painful area.
