Shockwave therapy is increasingly becoming used in the world of healthcare.
Physiotherapists, massage therapists, chiropractors, chiropodists, podiatrists, and more are using shockwave therapy machines to treat their patients.
Shockwave therapy is a treatment method that uses acoustic sounds waves. The acoustic waves penetrate the body’s tissues to alleviate pain and help the natural regeneration process of bones, tendons, and other soft tissues.
Many scientific studies have been conducted to determine the effectiveness of shockwave therapy for treating various human and animal conditions. For example, hamstring injuries, Achilles tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, hip dysplasia, calcific tendonitis of the shoulder, and more.
Here are some of the main benefits of shockwave therapy that make it a popular treatment in many clinics.
Shockwave Therapy is Proven to be Effective
Clinical studies have shown that shockwave therapy has a 91% success rate!
Research studies point that shockwave therapy is effective in reducing pain and inflammation and helping patients restore mobility.
For example, a clinical study published on Sicot-J studied the effects of shockwave therapy in the treatment of calcified tendinopathy of the rotator cuff following calcific deposit needling.
Of the 68 patients treated, all patients showed improvements in pain scores and mobility. In addition, all but one calcific deposit completely disappeared following the treatments.
Shockwave Therapy is Non-Invasive
For some injuries, patients might typically go through surgery to treat the condition. However, surgery can create large scars and complications during the healing process.
With shockwave therapy, patients don’t have to worry about invasive procedures that are painful and take a long-time to recover.
Clinical indications of shockwave therapy for chronic tendinopathies point that it’s a good alternative in patients with non-unions.
Shockwave therapy is also a great preventative treatment, so patients don’t reach the point where they need to consider treatments like surgery.
