RPW Shockwave Therapy

July 31, 2017

 

The Claydon Clinic has started to use  Radial Shockwave Therapy or radial pressure waves in the rehabilitation of certain conditions.

Emma our physiotherapist first used this machine when working with Arsenal Ladies and had some fantastic results, when she returned to work at the clinic we organised a trial of the machine and soon saw how it can benefit our patient population too.   

 

Shockwave is a form of electrotherapy. Shock waves are low energy sound waves that are a means of transmitting energy. These acoustic sound waves work on increasing blood flow to the injured area, accelerating the body's healing process and the stimulation of an inflammatory response, therefore enhancing tissue repair responses such as chronic tendon injuries and delayed fracture healing. 

 

Shock waves were first used in the early 1970's for non invasive treatment for kidney stones, after experimentation associated with this work it was identified that shock waves could have an effect on bone. this led to investigations looking at the effect of shockwaves on bone, cartilage and tissue such as ligaments, tendons and muscle. 

 

Studies have shown there is a 70% chance that this will be effective in treating chronic conditions after 3-5 sessions. 

 

The Claydon Clinic has had great results using shockwave to treat:

 

Planter Fasciitits 

Tennis/Golfers Elbow

Achilles Tendinopathy 

Shoulder Tendinopathy

Myofacial trigger points, including the neck.
