Shock Wave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

High Energy Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (EEST) is a recent innovation used to treat a variety of conditions. It is an Evidence Based approach that applies high energy acoustic waves to problematic areas while promoting the repair and renewal of soft tissue, tendons and bone. Compressed air is directed through the applicator and transferred into the target area, stimulating collagen production, promoting new blood vessel formation, and effectively reducing chronic and acute pain.

What conditions does Shockwave Therapy treat?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (EEST) is used to treat many musculoskeletal conditions. At Hills District Podiatry, this treatment is primarily used on Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis and has proved greatly effective in increasing function and reducing pain in these conditions.
