Spring Osteo Clinic has introduced Swiss Dolorclast radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) as an adjunct to our osteopathy treatment and we are offering free trials in December 2017.
RSWT may be used for the treatment of chronic conditions including tennis/golfers elbow, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinopathy, patellar tendinopathy, shin splints and tendinopathy of the rotator cuff or to assist with pain management. RSWT is frequently effective where previously conservative management has failed to resolve stubborn complaints.
‘It’s exciting to be able to offer this therapy as an adjunct to our current Osteo treatments’ says Spring Osteo Clinic’s Dr Emily Mason, Osteopath. ‘This is a non-invasive therapy that does not require surgery nor medication; it stimulates our patients own body healing ability and has minimal potential side effects.’
This form of treatment was developed from other medical indications including the treatment of kidney stones and is widely used in Europe and North America. Shockwave therapy has undergone numerous clinical research trials and has research to support its use for a range of tendinopathy conditions and pain management. Most importantly, it has been demonstrated as a safe treatment option.
Radial shockwaves are high-energy soundwaves transmitted from a probe held against and passing through your skin and spreading outwards into your underlying tissues. This is believed to induce increased blood flow and metabolic activity around the site of pain accelerating the healing process. At the very least it effectively reduces pain from this area.
The treatment sessions take approximately ten minutes where you will receive 2000 pulses. Many patients get pain relief immediately after the first treatment. Depending on the condition and your response you may require three to five treatments.
Spring Osteo Clinic is offering free trials of RSWT throughout December and we invite you to speak to your osteopath about whether this treatment may be right for you. Please call us on 03 9830 7044 or email [email protected] to discuss this opportunity.
