During each visit, I provide a thorough discussion about causes, course (prevention?) and treatment options. This is in conjunction with a thorough physical examination. Only when a patient correctly understands their situation can they make a reasonable decision about their health.
In the case of numerous acute or chronic overload syndromes in the tendons or connective tissue between tendon/ligament and bone, shockwave therapy achieves a blood-free, chemical-free improvement to remove symptoms. The best known examples are the “calcareous shoulder”, the “heel spur” or the “Achilles tendonitis”. There are numerous other applications (ie tennis elbow, knee-cap ligament tendonitis, trochanteric inflammation, etc.). The principle is based on the activating and regeneration of the affected tissues by mechanical stimulation.
