Clinicians at Acer House Practice adopt evidence-based treatments to enhance and improve patients’ recovery outcomes. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is a modality that applies targeted acoustic waves to an injured region to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms and create a strong analgesic response.
What is Shockwave treatment?
Shockwave treatment is a safe and effective way to alleviate pain, enhance circulation, and promote tissue regeneration. Some examples of conditions with evidence-based practices include:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis/tendinopathy
- Patella tendinopathy (also known as jumper’s knee)
- Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (lateral hip pain)
- Hamstring tendinopathy
- Shoulder pain, including rotator cuff tendinopathy
- Tennis and golfer’s elbow
What to expect:
The treatment will begin with the application of a small amount of gel to the injured region to enhance shockwave conduction. The shockwave device is then applied to the area and will cause a brief intense pulsing sensation. The practitioner will begin the treatment at a low impulse intensity to minimise discomfort, carefully building up to a tolerated intensity and a point where the maximal therapeutic effect will take place. Shockwave application is brief with each treatment typically including the addition of massage and exercises during the treatment to improve effect. Your clinician will then offer aftercare advice and exercises to further enhance tissue regeneration between Shockwave appointments.
