Shock-Wave Therapy

Shock waves are sent into the patient’s tissues in pulses of focused pressure, each lasting just a fraction of a second, which directly generates a mechanical force within the tissues. The main objective of these waves is the stimulation of reparative processes at bone-level. In addition, these waves also have a potent anti-inflamatory effect.

This treatment is extremely effective in several osteoarticular diseases such as:

  • Calcification or tendinopathy of the shoulder
  • Patellar and quadricep tendinopathies
  • Achilles Tendon tendinopathy
  • Hamstring tendinopathy (or groin & rectal adductor strains)
  • Plantar fasciitis (heel spurs)
  • Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
  • Medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow)
  • Complications of muscle damage (scarring, heterotopic ossification)
  • Nonspecific synovitis of small joints
  • Delays union of bone fractures

In most cases these treatments are provided in 3-5 applications, each lasting around 5-6 minutes with each session spaced around 2-7 days apart, again depending on the specific pathology of the patient.

During treatment, some patients report feeling of mild discomfort, which subsides shortly after the session finishes.
