This treatment involves sending shockwaves through the skin to influence the affected tissue beneath. It can provide the following benefits:

  • Increased local blood flow and cellular activity
  • Breakdown of calcific deposits
  • Mechanical stimulation

RPW shockwave can take a tissue from a more chronic to a more acute state, and in doing so, provides a stimulus to repair and healing (Watson 2012).

The main evidence supporting this treatment covers conditions such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Archillies tendinopathy
  • Patella tendinopathy
  • Tennis and Golfers elbow
