Shockwave Therapy Treatment

Shockwave Therapy is also commonly known as Radial Shockwave Therapy and it’s a popular treatment for various types of musculoskeletal ailments, especially in cases where your major connective tissue attaches your bone.

Some of the common ailments shockwave therapy can be used for include:

  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Shin splints
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tennis elbow
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis and calcification
  • Muscle pain
  • Trochanteric bursitis
  • Stress fractures
  • Nerve issues

Shockwave therapy is a recent form of non-surgical treatment which often produces the same results as surgery. It’s regarded as a good option for people who haven’t been cured by other types of treatments. Before being recommended for shockwave treatment our team at Fit Physiotherapy Newmarket will assess your condition and let you know if we feel it would be helpful. It’s generally used with patients who have suffered with a chronic injury for three months or more. This type of therapy is known as a standalone treatment, which means no other exercises or modalities will be recommended while receiving shockwave treatment.

Electrotherapy

  • Interferential Current stimulation to increase blood flow and relieve pain in tender areas
  • Ultrasound therapy to increase circulation and break apart scar tissue
  • Shockwave therapy to break down calcium deposits and scar tissue in tendons and ligaments
  • Hot/Cold therapy to reduce pain, increase circulation, and decrease swelling

Radial Shockwaves Therapy is designed to speed up the healing process by activating the self-healing powers of the body. It enhances blood stimulation which allows the damaged tissue to regenerate itself and then eventually heal. Your body’s metabolism will also be stimulated. Pain is relieved when the treatment produces an analgesic effect on the affected area. Several treatments are typically needed to heal the problem. The surface of your skin receives high-energy acoustic waves and they are spread spherically into the body. Your body will then respond with an increase in metabolic activity in the area where you feel pain.

Our Approach

At Fit Physiotherapy of Newmarket the shockwaves will be applied by a hand piece which is designed to produces strong pulses of energy for short periods of time. These pulses will be directly applied to the affected area. The shockwaves effect the tissue mechanically as the pressure in front of the pulse is transmitted into your tissue. This will create micro-cavitation bubbles which ten expand into a resultant force. The force penetrates into the tissue and stimulates the body’s cells which are responsible for connective tissue and bone healing. Calcium deposits can also be broken down with shockwave therapy.

There are numerous advantages to shockwave treatment such as no side effects, no need for medication, the avoidance of anesthesia, no risk of allergies, the accelerations of healing and the fast relief from pain. In general, each treatment lasts between 10 and 30 minutes and several treatments are needed each week for approximately three weeks.

Our team at Fit Physiotherapy Newmarket  will assess your needs and discuss your health history before recommending shockwave therapy as a form of treatment.
