ESWT is a non-invasive procedure used in order to treat chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
ESWT uses high energy acoustic waves to help initiate the repair of chronically inflamed tissues, by means of tissue regeneration. Although the exact mechanism is unexplained, it is thought that the shockwaves induce a formation of networks and growth factors within the tissues which are rich in blood supply, therefore promoting healing.
Commonly treated conditions include:
- Shoulder pain (Calcification, tendinopathy, impingement syndromes)
- Tennis/Golfers elbow
- Carpal Tunnel
- Dupuytren’s contracture
- De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
- Jumpers Knee
- Chronic Muscle injuries
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Fracture healing
This new form of therapy we are offering has already proven to be successful in many cases. We have had a number of sports players from various Scottish Football and Rugby teams, including St. Mirren F.C. and Rangers F.C.
