Neck and shoulder pain? Let us relieve the pressure
Shockwave therapy is known to help all sorts of conditions – but did you know that it can help treat neck and shoulder pain? Neck and shoulder pain is a common problem amongst athletes or even those with physically demanding jobs. It can even be a problem for office workers due to neck strain caused by sitting in the wrong position at a desk while using a computer. But by visiting one of our clinics, either in London or Guildford, you could find yourself being given a whole new lease of life.
What is the treatment?
The highly effective Shockwave therapy treatment uses pressure pulses or acoustic waves to target painful areas by stimulating nerve and blood vessel growth. The treatment most often used with shoulder and neck pains is called Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT). This therapy shocks the body into self-healing. So if you’re reading this and you suffer from aches in these areas, you might find it worthwhile to ask the question – and see a doctor.
What causes these pains?
As much as these pains can be caused by anxiety – causing tension – they can also be caused by calcific tendonitis. Calcific tendonitis is a build up of calcium in the rotator cuff (between where your bones meet and where muscles help rotation). This can cause extreme pain and can be difficult to cure! Shockwave therapy has become well-known for its highly effective treatment of these sorts of aches and pains.
How does shockwave therapy work?
Pads are placed on the painful areas and shockwaves are sent through the skin using high amplitude pulses of mechanical energy. Shockwave therapy is non-invasive and can also help treat other conditions such as back pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Coccydynia, Plantar Fasciitis, Tennis and Golfer’s elbow, Trochanteric Bursitis and erectile dysfunction. There are thousands of doctors who recommend shockwave therapy because it can help the body heal when surgery fails or no longer works on a patient.
