Shockwave Therapy (Chronic Tendon Injury Treatment)
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy treatment (ECSWT) is a highly effective treatment available for patients with chronic tendon disorders. It is a non-surgical treatment that works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. This increases blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing and decreasing local factors that cause pain.
Evidence shows an overall IMPROVEMENT rate of 77% for chronic conditions that have not been cured with other kinds of treatment.
Conditions recommended include:
Tennis and golfer’s elbows
and shin splints (MTSS).
