Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (or ESWT), is a technology using shockwaves to treat chronic, painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Also used by olympians and elite athletes in premier league football clubs, it is a highly effective treatment for pain relief and healing.
Shockwaves accelerates the healing process by activating the body’s self-healing powers. EWST treats the musculoskeletal pathology instead of just offering symptomatic relief.
ESWT is effective treatment for:
- Pain in the neck, shoulder, back, hip, thigh and ankle.
- Plantar Fasciitis (heel spur)
- Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow,
- Jumper’s knee
- Achilles tendon pain

Video clips that show spontaneous formation of bubbles – thought to be the primary mechanism by which Shock Waves act on the body. Radial Shock Wave has highest intensity on the skin and moves in to a depth of 4 to 5 cm – it is great for superficial indications, where the source of pain is close to the skin. Whereas focused Shock Wave has the highest intensity at varying depths to target deep structures – it is great for deep indications, where there is no sensation on the skin and the source of pain is on the hip and shoulder.
