What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment option in orthopaedic and rehabilitation medicine. The term shockwave refers to mechanical pressure pulses that expand as a wave in the body. In modern pain therapy, shockwave energy is conducted from the point of origin to the painful body regions, where it applies its healing capacities.

The first medical treatment with shockwaves was lithotripsy. This allowed focused shockwaves to essentially dissolve kidney stones without surgical intervention. Today, over 98% of all kidney stones are treated with this technology. The use of shockwaves to treat tendon related pain began in the early 1990s.

The treatment is administered at both the Warlingham Green Osteopathic Clinic, Surrey, and The Osteopathic Clinic of Physical Medicine, Croydon by Paul Morrissey. Paul is a highly experienced registered osteopath specialising in tendon-related injuries.

How does it work?

Many medical white papers explain the benefits of Shockwave therapy. A recent paper explains the neural processes involved in pain memory. According to the new theory shock waves selectively delete "pathologic reflex patterns" and enable re-learning of "hale reflex pattern", being the basis of permanent healing.

Read more in a lately published paper in the professional journal Urological Research: A neural model for chronic pain and pain relief by extracorporeal shock wave treatment.
