Located in Glen Iris, our Osteopaths have been trained to use a Swiss Dolarclast Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Machine. We know, when tendons become damaged or injured they take much longer to heal, primarily because they have a very poor blood supply. We often see conditions such as Tennis and Golf elbow, Plantar Fasciitis, Lateral Hip pain, Rotator Cuff tendonitis which have notoriously hard to treat, responding VERY well to Shockwave Therapy.
Together with being a non-surgical therapy and no need for painkillers, it makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and heal conditions which have been problematic for considerable periods of time.
Are you struggling with tendon pain?
Shockwave Therapy has been shown to reduce pain, increase range of motion and promote healing of conditions which have failed to respond to conservative management
