SHOCKWAVE ~ Brighton only
Reboots a stalled healing response or when traditional treatments have not been effective.
Is used for many conditions, including tendon injuries, plantar fasciitis, muscle injury/spasm, myofascial pain syndromes and trigger point treatments.
It brings about a pro inflamatory response, which is necessary to bring about tissue healing in the body and results in accelerated tissue repair and cell growth.
This includes encouraging tendon regeneration, increases in blood flow, appropriate blood vessels formation and generating pain relief.
NICE guidance 2009 recommends Shockwave for the treatment of chronic tendon injuries especially Achilles ,Tennis elbow and Plantar Fasciitis.
