This amazing sound wave treatment featured in publications like Daily Mail, Ace tennis magazine, Golf International & ESPN cricket info.com has transformed the Sports Injury department's management for limb pain
Wimbledon Chiropractic Sports Injury Clinic has always been a hub of medical technology and we having been using Shock Wave Therapy at our Wimbledon Clinic for over 10 years.
We use this technology to aid your recovery of limb pain.
Originally the treatment is aimed at athletes, it can also treat Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), foot pain, knee pain, Achilles Tendonitis etc, with amazing results.
A supersonic acoustic wave is created within the handpiece of our shockwave machine.
The subsequent sound pulse is absorbed by the tissues.
The sound wave pulses create a sudden repetitive change in pressure within the affected tissues.
This pressure change stimulates a large healing response along with pain reduction in tissues treated.
If there is also unnatural calcifications or tight tissue in the path of the tide theses will be shaken apart by the drumming of the wave.
Although it has been touted as a "Magic Wand" it was a pure scientific obsession that spurred on treatment development.
Advancements in Shock Wave Therapy have taken the large 'hospital-based' machines. Seen up until the 1990's, and created the modern compact 'clinic-based' machines that Wimbledon Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic offers today.
Since the 70's this treatment has been used to dissolve kidney stones and only in the last 25 years did we supply the treatment to tendons and other fibrous tissues to create an accelerated repair.
Don't worry the machines for tendons are designed for tendons are not as strong as the ones used to dissolve kidney stone.
Today there have been many positive studies in the treatment of a range of extremity disorders with heel pain and shoulder pain showing amazing results.
The effective depth of penetration depends on the pre-set energy (pressure) and the shape of the transmitter used.
The values of penetration depth range 5mm up to 7 cm, which is why shock wave can be as effective as surgery in a number of conditions.
Enhanced scattering of substance 'P', a pain-causing hormone Decrease of muscle tension Prevention of spasm and slowing of pain signals Acceleration of healing
Improved metabolism and micro-circulation Ligaments experience new blood vessel production Stimulation of osteoblasts activity (the bone repair cells) Mobility restoration
