Shockwave Therapy

FreeFlo Physio - Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave Therapy (SWT) can be used to treat an extensive range of musculoskeletal conditions, specifically those involving areas where connective tissue attaches to bone. Common sites that can be successfully treated are:
  • Increased pain with working
  • Rotator cuff tendinosis & calcification (shoulder)
  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Plantar Fasciitis, heel spurs & Achilles tendonitis
  • Trochanteric bursitis (Hip)
  • Patellar tendonitis, jumper’s knee, and shin pain
  • Trigger points in muscles
  • Stress fractures
Shockwave is high-energy acoustic waves that promote regeneration and reparative processes of bones, tendon, and other soft tissues. The high amplitude pressure is used to treat painful spots and myoskeletal tissues in sub-acute and chronic conditions. The majority of patients with chronic pain problems have been through unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 80% of the same patients worldwide report that Shockwave Therapy has helped them eliminate their problem. Most indications require 3-5 treatments, which are done 3-10 days apart, depending on the patient’s tolerance and their tissue response. The cost per treatment is $90. Generally patients will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 2-4 hours after the treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.
