Shockwave (ECSWT)

for tendinopathy/tendonitis

We use  radial Shockwave (in combination with dynamic taping and corrective exercise) as part of our tendinopathy management protocols.  

‘shockwave therapy has been shown to be beneficial in …upper and lower extremity tendinopathies, fasciopathies, and soft tissue conditions… 

In comparison to ultrasound waves, the shockwave peak pressure is approximately 1000 times greater than the peak pressure of an ultrasound wave… the proposed mechanisms of action for ECSWT include the following: promote neovascularization at the tendon-bone junction, stimulate proliferation of tenocytes and osteoprogenitor differentiation, increase leukocyte infiltration, and amplify growth factor and protein synthesis to stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue remodeling.’
