Shockwave Therapy (Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy) is a new form of treatment which involves giving controlled sonic pulses which fragment calcific deposits. It is now available at my GK Physiotherapy practice, using the newest device currently available, by Storz Medical (MP100 mobile device) generating up to 5 bar pressure.
Shockwave now officially acts as a fast and evidence-based substitute to various surgical and medical procedures, with 70-80% success rate.
The main conditions treated by Shockwave are Shoulder Calcific Tendinopathy, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar fasciitis, Tennis / Golfers Elbow and other specific painful and debilitating conditions.
All treatments are always given as part of a full physiotherapy evaluation and medical consultation and are covered by all the main private health insurances such as BUPA, AXAPPP, AVIVA, WPA etc.
