What Is Shock Wave Therapy (SWT)?
Also known as Piezo Wave Therapy, shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that sends pulses of acoustic sound waves to injured tissues, stimulating the growth of new cells to replace the damaged ones. Ultimately, the objectives of SWT are to trigger the body’s healing mechanism, reducing pain, and increasing mobility.
Conditions Treated by Shock Wave Therapy
SWT is increasingly being used in physiotherapy to treat conditions that are not responding to other treatments. SWT is pivotal in treating musculoskeletal conditions, especially those around tendons and ligaments. This treatment has been proven to treat numerous conditions, including:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Chronic injuries
- Golfer’s and tennis elbow
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Jumpers knee
- Rotator cuff injury
This treatment is also effective in treating numerous joint-related injuries, promoting faster healing and producing fewer side effects in the process.
How Does Piezo Wave Therapy Fit in Chiropractic Care?
Our chiropractor uses SWT along with other chiropractic treatments to treat various illnesses affecting the musculoskeletal system. After accessing your condition critically, our chiropractor uses SWT alongside other treatments like spinal manipulation, stretching exercises, and massage therapy to provide relief.
SWT is administered at least once per week for 3 to 6 weeks, depending on your condition and how you are responding to treatment.
