    Shockwave Therapy

    Shockwave Therapy

    Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ECSWT) is a non-invasive solution for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Applications are mostly associated with the care management of chronic muscular and tendon disorders, back, lower limb and foot pain.

    Shockwave Therapy being conducted

    At my FootDr podiatry centres, we use shockwave therapy successfully every day on Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, painful trigger points and other musculoskeletal disorders of the foot and lower limb. During care management, a high-intensity acoustic wave interacts with the tissues of the lower limbs and feet. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects including neovascularisation ingrowth, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up.

    Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ECSWT) Stimulation of these biological mechanisms creates an optimal healing environment. As the injured area is returned to normal, functionality is restored and pain is relieved over the long term.

    Fast, Safe & Convenient Pain Relief

    • Unique, non-invasive solution for musculoskeletal pain
    • Just three to four care management needed at weekly intervals
    • A therapy session only takes about 10 minutes

    Mechanism Of Action

    A shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and repair of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. It can dissolves calcified fibroblasts, which can decalcify ossified soft tissues and bone spurs leading to increased mobility.

    Elimination Of Pain (Analgesic Effect)

    Decrease Of Muscle Tension By Inhibiting Spasms

    Hyperaemia is one of the basic effects of shockwave therapy in the body. It provides better oxygen supply to hypertonic muscles and their ligamentous structures. Furthermore, it decreases pathological interactions between actin and myosin, leading to significant reduction of muscle tension.

    Faster Healing

    Increase Of Collagen Production

    The production of a sufficient amount of collagen is a necessary precondition for the repair processes to the damaged myoskeletal and ligamentous structures.

    Improved Micro Circulation & Metabolism

    The shockwave therapy technology accelerates removal of nociceptive metabolites, increases oxygenation and supplies the damaged tissue with a source of energy. It supports removal of histamine, lactic acid and other irritating agents.
