What is Shockwave therapy?

Shockwave machines deliver high intensity sound waves into chronic tissue .This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects including increased blood flow ,cellular activity, stimulation of collagen, dissolution of calcium, and ultimately pain relief.

It is thought that the shockwaves activate C nerve fibres which release a specific substance (substance P) in the tissue and in the spinal cord. This substance is responsible for the slight discomfort during and after shockwave treatment. However, with prolonged activation, C fibres become incapable for some time of releasing substance P. Less Substance P in tissue, means less pain for the patient!

NICE guidance 2009 recommends Shockwave for the treatment of chronic tendon injuries especially Achilles ,Tennis elbow and Plantar Fasciitis.
