Shockwave Therapy, is a well established treatment for musculoskeletal problems in Singapore.
Using a high energy acoustic wave, shockwave induces an inflammatory response and tissue repair, thereby treating many conditions.
While it is more established as a treatment for plantar fasciitis and tennis elbow, patients with other pain problems also benefit from shockwave.
Shockwave is used to slightly uncomfortable for the patient and performed under local anaesthesia. Recent advances in medical technology has allowed the procedure to generally be done much more comfortably and without anaesthesia.
It is important to note that although shockwave may be a very useful option for a number of painful conditions, it is usually not the first treatment offered. However, if a patient is still in pain even after trying other standard treatment modalities, it would be a
good idea to consult a doctor to explore whether it is a suitable option.
