Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy – An Alternative Treatment for Tendinitis
What is extracorporeal shock wave therapy? ESWT is a procedure that involves using high-pressure energy directly to the skin. It is also known as radial shockwave therapy, or focused shockwave therapy since the treatment is very precise.
This treatment process reduces pain and provides healing stimulation in order to promote healing response within the tissue. It promotes increased blood flow the the treated area and reduces scar tissue formation. This is a very effective treatment in our practice for the treatment of tennis elbow and other types of tendonitis conditions. So please consider shockwave therapy for tennis elbow Davie.
Tendonitis the general terms is an inflammation of the tendon or it surrounding teeth due to repetitive trauma or overuse. If the problem persists for a an extended period of time, one can develop calcific tendonitis. The deposition of calcium in the tissue is to further strengthen the inflamed area. This is exactly what a heal spur is, for example. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is an excellent alternative treatment for these types of conditions.
