Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

Shock wave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment for musculoskeletal injuries. At LycaHealth Physiotherapy we provide shock wave therapy in Canary Wharf, East London and Orpington, Kent.

Shock wave therapy is particularly effective for tendinopathies.

It can help those who experience ongoing pain from conditions like achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow.

It can also be used for stress fractures that have failed to join.

Originally used to break up kidney stones, ESWT is proving an effective treatment for musculoskeletal conditions. Shock wave technology uses pulses of high energy sound or pressure waves to encourage regeneration and growth of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and bone.

ESWT can provide immediate pain relief and is often used after other non-invasive treatments have been unsuccessful. It also has very minor side effects when compared to alternative more invasive treatments like surgery and injections.
