What Is Extracorporeal Radial Shockwave Therapy (ERST Therapy)?

The therapy involves a physical sound wave ‘shock’ not an electric one. It involves a series of high energy percussions to the affected area.

What Conditions Can It Help?

The therapy has been proven to result in over 80% success in previous studies for a range of conditions. The therapy is particulary effective on stubborn conditions when other treatments have not shown any real improvement. Some conditions shown to have significant relief include:

  • Heel pain including plantar fascitiis
  • Achilles Pain
  • Foot pain and mortons neuroma
  • Shoulder problems including frozen shoulder, calcifications in the shoulder and tendinopathies
  • Long term (chronic) neck and back pain
  • Elbow tendon problems including tennis and golfers elbow
  • Muscle tension points causing pain
  • Patella tendonitis or jumpers knee

What Will Happen During The Treatment?

The machine will be set up to the right intensity for you and then gel or castor oil will be applied to the affected area which helps transmit energy into the tissues. The sound shockwaves are then transmitted into the tissues of the painful area as the applicator is moved in small circular motions.

How Long Is The Treatment And How Often Do I Need It?

The treatment can be anything between 5 and 20 minutes. A noticeable affect can often be noticed after the 1st or 2nd treatment but can take up to 5-7 treatments to achieve the maximum relief. The treatments are usually separated on a weekly basis.
