Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy in Kilkenny Physiotherapy Clinic

We are delighted to announce we now have Shock Wave Treatment available in the Clinic.

This is a new treatment for acute and chronic soft tissue conditions.

The treatment involves sending shockwaves ( non painful !) to the affected area to break down scar tissue, decalcify tendons and promote better healing.

Shockwave Therapy provides the following benefits:

  • Mechanical Stimulation of tissue : Increased blood flow
  • Increased cell activity
  • Pain relief
  • Breakdown of scar tissue

There are certain conditions where Shockwave Therapy is particularly effective. These are :

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel Spurs
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Patellar Tendonopathy
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder Tendonopathy
  • Tennis and Golfers Elbow
  • Acute/ Chronic Muscle Tear
  • Thumb basal joint arthritis
  • Dupuytrens Disease
