Redwing Repairs

Shockwave therapy has over the past decade became a prominent treatment option for patients suffering with chronic tendon problems. Shockwave therapy uses pressurised air or electromagnetic pulses to delivers shockwaves to the patients body to help treat a host of ailments including:

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Calcific tendonitis

  • Tennis elbow

Possible Treatments

  • Plantar fasciitis

    Plantar fasciitis is a disorder of the connective tissue which supports the arch of the foot. It results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot that is usually most severe with the first steps of the day or following a period of rest.

  • Calcific tendonitis

    Calcific tendinitis is a form of tendinitis, a disorder characterized by deposits of hydroxyapatite (a crystalline calcium phosphate) in any tendon of the body, but most commonly in the tendons of the rotator cuff (shoulder), causing pain and inflammation. The condition is related to and may cause adhesive capsulitis ("frozen shoulder").

  • Tennis Elbow

    Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a condition in which the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender. The pain may also extend into the back of the forearm and grip strength may be weak. Onset of symptoms is generally gradual. Golfer's elbow is a similar condition that affects the inside of the elbow.

  • Knee Pain

    The knee joint consists of an articulation between four bones: the femur, tibia, fibula and patella. There are four compartments to the knee. These are the medial and lateral tibiofemoral compartments, the patellofemoral compartment and the superior tibiofibular joint. The components of each of these compartments can suffer from repetitive strain, injury or disease.

High Intensity Pressure Waves

Shockwaves are movements of extremely high pressure caused by, for example, an explosion, an earthquake or a plane breaking the sound barrier. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is the application of Shock Waves in medicine. It is clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions:

  • Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibres

  • Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues

  • Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cells activation
