Shockwave therapy

The extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modern technique that can be applied directly in the office in 1060 Vienna. Shockwaves create small microtraumata in the painful region and thereby induce a neo-vascularisation (new bloodvessels). The increased blood supply promotes tissue healing.

Indications

  • plantar fasciitis of the heel
  • lateral and medial epicondylitis of the elbow (tennis elbow)
  • calcific tendinitis of the shoulder
  • non calcific tendinitis of the shoulder
  • painful Achilles tendon
  • buristis trochanterica of the hip
  • patellar tendinopathy
  • trigger point therapy to treat muscle knots

 

The treatment is done in a series of 3 to 4 applications. Modern technologies allow for a gentle treatment. In most cases local anesthesia is not necessary. Pain reduction can be seen after a few weeks.
