Shockwave

Dolorclast Radial Shockwave Therapy (DRSWT) is useful for the treatment of pain related to a number of chronic soft tissue conditions.

  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfers elbow
  • plantar fasciitis
  • achilles tendinopathy
  • patellar tendinopathy
  • shin splints
  • shoulder tendinopathy

Radial shockwaves are high energy soundwaves transmitted from a probe held against and passing through the skin and spreading outward into the underlying tissues.  This increases blood flow which accelerates healing and creates a local analgesic in the area. Depending on the condition and your response, you may require between 1 to 5 treatments.
