Shockwave therapy is especially effective in treating the following conditions:
Calcaneal spur, mostly chronic, painful inflammation under the heel. Achilles tendon and occasional stress bumps at its insertion at the back of the heel.
Mortons Neuroma, irritated nerve often in the ball of the foot.
Painful irritation and lack of movement of the great toe joint
which can cause problems with hip and low back alignment which can result in significant pain and discomfort.
Painful irritation of the elbow.
Painful restriction of movement of the shoulder tendon/muscle attachments.
Pain under the kneecap.
Pain under strain of the shin.
Inflammation of the tendon/muscle attachments of the upper leg.
Chronic pain throughout the back region caused by contracted muscles. Trigger Point Shock Wave Therapy (TSWT) using ESWT can release tight/contracted muscles thus removing pressure from nerves, disks and joints of the back.
Slow-healing bones or non-healing bones following a fracture or surgery.
Complaints involving insertion or attachment points for tendons and ligaments in major joints such as the shoulder-rotator cuff, elbow, hip, knee and so forth.
Other musculoskeletal conditions particularly those dealing with connective tissues and bone attachment.
Chronic pain in hip region caused by bursitis, flexion-extension of the hip or other pathologies.
ESWT has also proven beneficial for the treatment of chronic skin lesions, myofascial pain syndrome, burn injuries , peyronie's disease, reduction of scar tissue, etc.
