Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, is a well established method of treating pain and inflammation through stimulating tissue repair.
Employing high energy acoustic waves, shockwave induces new blood vessel growth and tissue regeneration, thereby treating many pain conditions.

Although introduced to Singapore for well over a decade as an option for pain relief, its use has up till recently been limited by the small number of doctors offering this option.

Treatment with earlier generation shockwave machines were also quite painful, usually requiring local anesthesia.

They were also very costly devices resulting in expensive treatments, which not many patients could afford.

Fortunately medical technology research in recent years has resulted in new devices which provide much more comfortable treatments and no longer require any local anesthesia injections.

They have also dramatically brought down treatment costs and made shockwave very affordable to patients with pain.

Shockwave therapy been clinically used to treat:

  • Plantar fasciitis (foot pain)
  • Achilles tendinopathy (heel pain)
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
  • Rotator cuff tendinitis (shoulder pain)
  • Myofascial trigger points (body aches and muscle pain)
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain

Clinical studies have demonstrated extremely high success rates, even in cases which have failed to respond to conventional approaches.

What sets this treatment apart from traditional treatments is that it treats the musculoskeletal pathology instead of just offering symptomatic relief.

Approved by the US FDA and EU CE marked, the German Shockwave technology offered at The Pain Relief Clinic is recognized by doctors around the world.
