What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)?

ESWT is an exciting non-invasive procedure that requires

  • no anaesthetic
  • no medication
  • no surgery
  • non invasive
  • fast treatment-10 minutes per session-3-4 sessions required
  • fewer complications
  • virtually painless after treatment
  • quick recovery, quick results

How does ESWT work?

The sound waves promoted during the treatment, stimulate healing for many physical disorders including plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis and shoulder calcification, etc

The machine delivers high energy shockwaes via the skin which activates the bodys self healing processes where pain occurs. It also increases metabolic activity through improved blood circulation and the formation of new blood vessels, and also nutures and accelerates the healing process through cell regeneration.

  • A shockwave is generated in the hand piece
  • The shockwave is delivered to the tissue via a compressed air impulse exerted by the
    hand piece.
  • The shockwave radiates out, extending to the entire area where pain occurs
  • Usually no more than 3-4 sessions are needed
  • Per session : approximately 2500 impulses at 2.5 bars and 4000 impulses for trigger
    point treatment
  • No anaesthetic is required
  • No surgery or other therapy is required and treatment can usually start straight away.If
