Clinical Success Rate

The most striking aspect of Shockwave Therapy is its success rate.  As an evidence-based practitioner, I am continually impressed by the efficacy of Shockwave Therapy as evidenced in the literature.  This year alone two excellent papers were published on the success of Shockwave Therapy in the American Journal of Sports Medicine.  When combined with exercise, Shockwave Therapy showed a 75% success rate with patellar (knee cap) tendinopathy and a 76% per cent success rate for the treatment of Achilles tendinopathy.  There have been more than 300 articles published on Shockwave Therapy in 10 double-blind, randomized, controlled trials.  The evidence for the use of Shockwave Therapy is overwhelming.

Recent clinical studies suggest there is an 80% – 85% chance this technology will improve your condition provided you are a good candidate for Shockwave treatment.  Our expert clinicians will evaluate your condition during an assessment and recommend the correct form of therapy for your condition.  Studies further confirm that 88% of patients treated for calcanial spurs and 95% of those treated for tennis elbow rated the results as “very good” or “good” only weeks after treatment.   Since this is still a new technology  over the next few years additional research studies will continue to be released further validating Shockwave as one of the most effective treatment techniques available.
