Muscle pain? Tendinopathies?
Osteoarthritis? No More Pain!
Discover the solution in Shock Wave therapy
Shock Waves are movements of extremely high pressure caused by, for example, an explosion, an earthquake or a plane breaking the sound barrier.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is the application of Shock Waves in Medicine
It is clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions:
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, the tissue that connects your heel to your toes. Athletes, especially runners, and people who tend to be on their feet for long periods of time are among those most likely to develop it, as their activities strain this tissue.
Repeated strain will cause small tears in the tissue, resulting in severe heel pain when walking. The pain is most pronounced first thing in the morning or after sitting for a long time.
Shockwave Therapy has shown promising results when being used to treat plantar faciitis.
Achilles tendinopathy, characterized by pain, swelling and stiffness of the achilles tendon, is believed to be caused by repeated small injuries or tears to the achilles tendon, which connects the heel to the calf muscle. Athletes most often deal with this overuse injury, but anyone engaged in excessive training or who is using poor technique in their training is susceptible to this form of tendinitis.
As the many small tears begin to swell, a person will begin to experience pain and stiffness at the back of the heel, worsening to the point where he may be unable to walk normally. The area may also be sore to the touch.
Suggested treatments for achilles tendinopathy begin with conservative options and evolve depending upon a person’s response to treatment. Doctors will usually suggest working through these options before suggesting surgery.
