DolorClast Shockwave Therapy

DolorClast radial shockwave therapy

sportsmed was the first healthcare provider in South Australia to offer patients access to DolorClast radial shockwave therapy – a world-class, safe and non-invasive treatment for soft tissue conditions.

Widely used in North America and Europe, the Therapy works by sending high energy soundwaves through a probe which is held against the affected area.

The shockwaves pass through the skin and spread outwards into the underlying tissue, increasing blood flow and metabolic activity around the site of pain, accelerating the healing process and providing an analgesic affect.

A number of our doctors offer this treatment to patients with the following conditions:

  • Calcific tendinopathy e.g. Rotator cuff.
  • Chronic enthesopathies/tendinopathies
  • Epicondylitis (tennis and golfer’s elbow) – medial and lateral
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Painful trigger points
  • Patella tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Trochanteric bursitis/gluteal tendinopathy
