Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy

Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a revolutionary treatment that delivers sound waves to affected areas and aids recovery. Due to this, Shockwave Therapy is non-surgical and offers a gentle solution to aggravating and persistent issues. Derma Solution is proud to offer this latest rehabilitation technology. Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven to help and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). This non-surgical Shockwave treatment is also recognised by top orthopaedic hospitals and used by high profile professional sports bodies such as the English Institute of Sport, International Athletics Association, and many Premier League football clubs. Many people turn to Shockwave Therapy for back pain, tendonitis and many other painful conditions.


Whether your injury, pain or chronic condition has been caused by exercise, pregnancy, ageing or accidents, musculoskeletal disorders and soft tissue injuries can be debilitating. Many people believe that surgery is the only answer for their health issues but are worried about taking such a risky step. This results in their pain or condition potentially worsening as there is no relief.

At Derma Solution we take a non-surgical route, which allows for speedy recovery. SHOCKWAVE THERAPY (ESWT) involves passing short, intense sound waves into affected tissues, which increases blood flow, relieves pain, and stimulates repair and regeneration. The Shockwave treatment puts the cells into repair mode and allows your body to restart its own accelerated healing process without the need for invasive surgery or drugs.

Shockwave Therapy provides effective results by:

– Stimulating microcirculation (blood, lymphatic releasing substance P, responsible for pain modulation)
– Releasing nitric oxide, which increases cell metabolism and neoangenesis and has an anti-inflammatory effect, stimulating the body’s own cells to help recovery
– Shockwave Therapy can also break down calcium deposits and release myofascial trigger points (myogeloses)

There are two types of Shockwaves – Focused (ESWT) and radial (RSWT). They Shockwaves differ in a number of ways, the energy and energy density of each wave as well as the penetration depths into the tissue are different. Radial shockwaves are suited for conditions nearer the surface and for deeper target areas the focused shockwave therapy is more effective. Many patients have reported excellent results using the focused shockwave therapy for back pain for example.


Common complaints are as follows but are not limited to:

  • Achilles tendon and heel pain – Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis (heel spur)
  • Knee and shin pain – Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s / runners Knee), Tibial edge syndrome (shin splints)
  • Elbow and arm pain – Forearm muscles, Epicondylitis (tennis or golfer elbow)
  • Shoulder and neck pain – Periarticular shoulder pain, Chronic neck and shoulder pain, Tendinosis Calcarea (calcific tendinitis)
  • Back pain – Lumbalgia (lumbago), Dorsalgia (chronic back pain)
  • Pseudarthrosis – Non healing bones
  • Men’s HealthErectile Dysfunction, Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS), Peyronie’s Disease (Penile Curvature)

Focused shockwave therapy

Focused shockwave is a superior and more effective treatment for:

  • Knee & Joint arthritis
  • Bone and Stress Fractures
  • Shin Splints
  • Osteitis Pubis -Groin Pain
  • Insertional Achilles Pain
  • Wound Healing
  • For conditions or patients who can’t tolerate radial shockwave and find it too painful.
  • Impotence
