Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy uses the healing properties of acoustic waves with specific properties, i.e. high pressure pulses in very short timeframes. Thanks to the energy provided by these waves, the healing process is stimulated in tendons and soft tissues. This treatment has an analgesic effect, reducing muscle tone and inhibiting muscle spasm. Additionally, it decreases healing time and increases the production of collagen, as well as simulating metabolism and microcirculation. Treatments are administered in a series of 3-5 every 3 to 7 days.

INDICATIONS FOR SHOCKWAVE THERAPY:

  • jumper’s knee
  • patellar tendonitis, runner’s knee
  • tennis elbow
  • calcaneal spur
  • plantar fasciitis
  • nerve and muscle pain syndromes (?)
  • plantar fascia pain
  • Achilles tendon pain
  • shoulder pain
  • soft tissue calcifications in muscles and joints
  • post traumatic conditions – hematomas
  • iliotibial band syndrome
  • groin pain (hip adductor sprain)

CONTRAINDICATIONS TO SHOCKWAVE THERAPY:

  • blood clotting disorders (hemophilia)
  • thrombosis and anticoagulant therapy
  • neoplasm
  • pregnancy
  • diabetic neuropathy
  • acute inflammation, fever
  • severe osteoporosis
  • application in certain body areas (eyes and surrounding area, heart muscles, spinal cord, gonads, kidneys, liver)
  • pacemaker (and in the surrounding tissue)
  • skeletally immature children
