Shock Wave Therapy
SWT is a young and very fast growing therapy which has gained acceptance within the orthopaedic community across the world.
20 years ago SWT was introduced for disintegration of kidney stones. More recently SWT has been gathering support for the treatment of tendons, stress fractures and wounds. SWT can result in the avoidance of surgeries and is a much cheaper and less invasive alternative with its safe and pain free application.
