Are you suffering with problems such as plantar fasciitis in the heel, shoulder tendon conditions, tennis elbow, golfers' elbow and patellar tendon conditions? ProPhysio has recently invested in a shock Wave Therapy machine which can help with these often challenging problems as well as others.
Shock Wave Therapy (SWT) has had a lot of positive press recently - international results show an overall success rate of 77% for some chronic conditions that are often a challenge to cure with traditional therapy.
SWT involves a hand held device that has a projectile in it that strikes an applicator at high speed and relatively high frequency to create a shock wave through the tissue. This causes cavitation bubbles to be formed in the tissue and, in turn, has been found to accelerate the healing process in certain chronic conditions.
Problems such as plantar fasciitis in the heel, shoulder tendon conditions, tennis elbow, golfers elbow and patellar tendon conditions (knee) respond very well and can often be totally cured with SWT.
This form of treatment lasts approximately 10 minutes and usually requires between 4 & 6 sessions to have good effect, but following as few as 2 sessions many people start to experience significant pain relief.
SWT has a bright future in injury management and although a rarity in Midlands based therapy practices, some have decided that its proven benefits are of clear value.
ProPhysio have decided to invest in this exciting new piece of equipment, so should you be suffering with any of the conditions mentioned and would like to learn more about what SWT has to offer, please contact Darrin at ProPhysio on 01530 588557
