Radial Shockwave Therapy for the Treatment of Tendinopathies Westmead

Radial Shockwave Therapy is a highly effective approach for addressing tendinopathies, commonly referred to as tendon disorders. We are equipped to assist you in achieving better results when managing your tendon issues. If you’ve been dealing with a tendon condition that hasn’t shown improvement through rest, medication, injections, or other therapies, shockwave therapy might offer a solution.

Radial Shockwave Therapy can address a variety of tendon problems, and there is strong scientific support for its effectiveness in treating conditions

  • Tendon Calcifications

  • Tennis elbow

  • Gluteus Medius Tendinopathy, which causes lateral hip pain

  • Shoulder Tendinopathy

  • Patella Tendinopathy, commonly known as “Jumper’s knee”

  • Achilles Tendinopathy

  • Plantar Fasciopathy

  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome, often referred to as “shin splints”

This therapy method involves delivering high-pressure acoustic waves into the affected tendon to break down calcium and scar tissue buildup. It also promotes the formation of new blood vessels and metabolic activity, kickstarting the body’s natural healing process while providing significant pain relief.

At Recovery Rehab Physiotherapy, we offer Shockwave Therapy utilizing cutting-edge technology to effectively address tendinopathies. Based on the growing body of high-quality evidence, we can confidently recommend treatment protocols and estimate the healing process for tendinopathies. Typically, we suggest a standard protocol of six shockwave therapy sessions, with two sessions in the first week and one session per week until treatment completion. In addition to shockwave therapy, our approach includes hands-on physiotherapy and evidence-based rehabilitation techniques to enhance joint mobility and strengthen the muscles surrounding the affected tendon.
