What is Shockwave Therapy.

History :

Shockwave was initially used in the 1970s and 80s as a non-invasive treatment for Kidney Stones and has since become the treatment of choice for such conditions.

Enquiring minds started to wonder what effects shockwaves could have on bone, cartilage and soft tissues (tendons, ligaments and fascia). This has led to a growing body of evidence of its efficiency? in aiding healing, especially in recurring? and chronic conditions.

The treatment goes by several different names, the most common being Shockwave therapy, Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ECSW) or Radial Shockwave Therapy. The latter used to distinguish between the nature of the wave from the focused versions used elsewhere in medical practice.

SWT is a non-invasive, non-surgical evidence-based treatment which is quick, safe and affordable.
