For almost 20 years extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has been an acknowledged form of treatment in orthopaedics where it is applied successfully for the non-invasive treatment of indications such as calcific tendinitis, achillodynia, epicondylitis and trigger points. Originally, shock wave therapy comes from urology where it is used for the disintegration of kidney stones (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, SWL).

In our practice, we use the latest equipment and best technologies in shockwave! This state of art Swiss made equipment, has been developed after many years research into providing improved shockwave treatment.

The STORZ DUOLITH® SD1 (shown here) provides ultra-focused shock wave therapy that is superior to radial shockwave used by many other practitioners .
