What is shock wave therapy ?

Shockwave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment option in orthopaedic and rehabilitation medicine. The term shockwave refers to mechanical pressure pulses that expand as a wave in the body. In modern pain therapy, shockwave energy is conducted from the point of origin - the shockwave generator - to the painful body regions, where it applies its healing capacities.

How does the treatment work?

A certain number of shocks are applied to the symptomatic area. The shocks last between 3-5 minutes in total. This will be combined with other modalities depending on the condition.


Your therapist will describe to you what will be happening and what you should feel throughout the treatment.

Shockwave Therapy is an effective treatment for the following conditions;

  • Heel spurs: plantar fasciitis

  • Knee pain: patellar tendinitis

  • Achilles tendon: achillodynia

  • Tennis elbow: lateral epicondylitis

  • Golf elbow: medial epicondylitis

  • Shoulder pain: tendinopathy

  • Hip pain: bursitis trochanterica

  • Shin pain: tibialis anterior syndrome

  • Tendons: chronic enthesopathies

  • Painful trigger points
