Shockwave Therapy Effectively Treat The Following Conditions
Feet – heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis
Elbow – tennis and golfers elbow
Shoulder – calcific tendinosis of rotator cuff muscles
Knee – patellar tendonitis
Hip – bursitis
Lower leg – shin splints
Upper leg – Iliotibial band friction syndrome
Back pain – lumbar and cervical spine regions and chronic muscular pain
How Often Can You Have Shockwave?
Shockwave treatment is usually done once a week for 3-6 weeks, depending on results. The treatment itself can cause mild discomfort, but it only last 4-5 minutes, and the intensity can be adjusted to keep it comfortable.
Is Shockwave & Ultrasound Same?
Shock waves are single, mainly positive pressure pulses that are followed by comparatively small tensile wave components. Ultrasound applies an alternating high frequency load to the tissue, with a frequency range of several megahertz, thus leading to heating, tissue tears and cavitation at high amplitudes.
