About Shock Wave Therapy

Low-energy shock wave therapy (SWT) is a revolutionary treatment that is used to treat tendon and other soft-tissue problems, particularly those that have not responded to other treatments.

Tendon problems, such as tennis elbow,  Achilles tendinopathy and patellar tendinopathy are usually treated initially by physiotherapy.  Sometimes they fail to respond to this and become longstanding problems.  They can cause severe pain and limit sports and other activities.  Shockwave Therapy has proved to be an excellent treatment option in such cases.

In this section we provide further details about this treatment and how it works.
