Oct 27, 2023

Welcome to Hello Physio, Singapore's premier destination for top-notch Health & Medical services, specializing in Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy. In this article, we will delve into the remarkable world of external shock wave therapy and explore how it can help you overcome various musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.

Understanding External Shock Wave Therapy

External Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive and highly effective treatment option that utilizes high-energy sound waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. It is commonly used in sports medicine and physical therapy to address a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Calcific Tendonitis
  • Golfer's Elbow
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • And more...

ESWT works by delivering energy waves directly to the affected area, promoting increased blood circulation, tissue regeneration, and pain relief. The procedure is performed by trained professionals at Hello Physio, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience.

The Benefits of External Shock Wave Therapy

Choosing external shock wave therapy as part of your treatment plan at Hello Physio brings forth a multitude of benefits:

Pain Reduction and Improved Mobility

The primary objective of ESWT is to alleviate pain and enhance mobility. By targeting the root cause of your condition, the therapy stimulates the body's healing mechanisms, leading to reduced pain levels, increased range of motion, and improved overall functionality.

Non-Invasive and Non-Surgical Approach

Unlike surgical interventions, external shock wave therapy is non-invasive and does not require incisions or anesthesia. This means no downtime, minimal risk of complications, and a faster recovery period. It is an excellent option for those seeking a conservative treatment approach.

No Medication Dependency

ESWT offers a drug-free alternative to managing chronic pain associated with various musculoskeletal conditions. By addressing the underlying issue instead of providing temporary relief, this therapy reduces the need for medication and potential side effects.

Enhanced Healing and Tissue Regeneration

By promoting blood flow and stimulating cell regeneration, external shock wave therapy enhances the body's natural healing mechanism. This accelerates the recovery process, allowing you to get back to your active lifestyle quicker.

How Does the Process Work?

During your visit to Hello Physio, our experienced Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy professionals will conduct a thorough assessment to determine if external shock wave therapy is the right approach for your condition. If suitable, the following steps are typically followed:

Step 1: Preparing for the Treatment

Prior to the therapy session, your physiotherapist will discuss the procedure in detail and address any queries or concerns you may have. They will also prepare the target area by applying a conductive gel or coupling medium to ensure optimal energy transmission.

Step 2: Administering the Shock Waves

Once you are comfortable, our expert will apply the shockwave device to the affected area, delivering precision-controlled energy waves. You may experience a mild tingling or vibrating sensation during the process, but it should not be painful.

Step 3: Post-Treatment Care

After the therapy session, your physiotherapist will provide instructions for post-treatment care, including any exercises or stretches that can complement the healing process. It is crucial to follow these guidelines to optimize the results of the therapy.
