Shockwave therapy to treat calf muscle tightness

calf muscle tightness

Walk This Way Podiatry is proud to provide shockwave therapy with our EMS Swiss Dolorclast system. Effective for a range of orthopeadic and soft tissue injuries, the Dolorclast is not only used by elite sporting teams but is also the official shockwave treatment for the Olympic Games.

What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial shockwave therapy is the application of high-intensity sound waves to chronic musculoskeletal injuries. When applied to an injured area these shockwaves provide pain relief by increasing blood flow, decreasing surrounding muscle tension and stimulating long-term tissue repair.

At Walk This Way Podiatry we use ESWT successfully every day to treat Calf Muscle Tightness.

At your appointment:

After a thorough assessment of your injury, shock waves are applied via a hand-held applicator against the skin. The initial phase of treatment may cause some pain, however, this indicates correct targeting of the area. This is usually followed by numbness and heaviness in the area and the latter stages of treatment are more comfortable. The treatment sessions are up to 10 minutes in duration during which you may receive up to 2500 pulses. Depending on your condition you may require 3 to 5 treatments each one week apart.

Don’t let your injuries get the better of you. We care about your health and fitness. Make an appointment for an assessment and shockwave therapy today!
