What is Shockwave Therapy?
SWT, otherwise known as EWST (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy) is a treatment designed to help the recovery of certain chronic Musculo-skeletal disorders. Often, when injuries have reached a chronic stage or failed to respond to the standard treatment pathways EWST is the most recommended way forward to get back on track and avoid the need for surgery. Furthermore, it is recommended and endorsed by "N.I.C.E." guidelines when given in conjunction with an appropriate rehabilitation exercise programme.
Shockwave treatment works by passing targeted high energy impulses through the damaged tissues in radial acoustic waves (not electric shocks!) The waves promote blood flow and cause cellular agitation that triggers the body's healing responses, speeding up metabolic changes and kick-starting cell regeneration and the healing process.
Advantages of SWT:
Medical studies suggest that Shockwave Therapy can have up to 77% success rates. The treatments are non-invasive and can mean you avoid the need for medication. Treatments are quick, effective and have few complications. Results vary depending on the severity and region of injury, but patients must adhere to coordinated exercise and rehab plans alongside the application of Shockwaves to achieve the best results.
Pain or side effects?
The shockwave treatments can have a certain level of discomfort associated with them and occasionally there might be redness or mild bruising of the area targeted. Power can be reduced or increased depending on your tolerance and our therapists will discuss this and adapt based on your feedback.
