Clinically proven, highly effective treatment for soft tissue tendon injuries & chronic pain. Shockwave therapy produces a regenerative &tissue repairing effect in musculoskeletal tissue, while decreasing the high levels of inflammatory & pain responses.
If you have been suffering from chronic tendon pain following an injury or surgery, there is nothing worse than expecting a long recovery or worse still finding that conventional therapies aren’t working. Shockwave therapy, is a clinically proven, non-invasive, treatment for chronic soft tissue & tendon injuries.
At Run Lab a radial Shockwave system is used, which exerts a mechanical pressure & tension force (high energy pulses), applied through an applicator head-on contact to the injury site.
This mechanical pressure causes cavitation (formation of empty space) in the tissues. As these bubbles collapse, they create smaller secondary energy waves, further assisting in the breakdown of pathological deposits within the damaged tissue. The several thousand shockwaves that are applied through injured tissue helps to stimulate fibroblasts (cells fundamental in the formation and healing of our muscle/tendon/ligament/skin tissues) & osteoblasts (cells that form new bone) enhancing the healing process & cell generation of soft tissue & bone.
Shockwave also targets pain by stimulating anaesthesia where nerves sending pain signals to the brain become over stimulated resulting in decreased activity thus diminishing or eliminating pain. After a few treatments the pain gate control mechanism alters its stimulation, resulting in longer periods of decreased pain.
So why not target your tendon, ligament, muscle or joint pain effectively & enhance post surgical recovery, while receiving tailored rehabilitation for your lifestyle or sporting needs?
