Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) otherwise referred to as shockwave therapy, was first introduced into clinical practice in 1982 for the management of urologic conditions. The success of this technology for the treatment of urinary stones quickly made it a first-line, noninvasive, and effective method. Subsequently, ESWT was studied in orthopedics where it was identified that it could loosen the cement in total hip arthroplasty revisions. Further, animal studies conducted in the 1980s revealed that ESWT could augment the bone-cement interface, enhance osteogenic response and improve fracture healing. While shockwave therapy has been shown to be beneficial in fracture healing, most orthopedic research has focused on upper and lower extremity tendinopathies, fasciopathies, and soft tissue conditions.
Pneumatic Shockwave Therapy produces Radial shockwaves. They are called Soft Shockwaves and penetrate deep and effectively without focussing energy at a single point. This is the best and most effective technology used in pain management. Patients feel very comfortable during the treatment and pneumatic shockwaves have a much wider range of applications.

Antenatal and Postnatal Training
Preganancy is the greatest desire in everyones life and an accomplishment of motherhood. But prior to pregnancy, we need to plan out things to make it successful.
Questions? How to make your pregnancy successful?
Answere: Answere is simple! A proper physiotherapy regime. A proper physiotherpr regime which includes Pre and Post natal program makes it easy.
Seeing a women's health physiotherapist can help you prevent and treat problems. The hormonal changes responsible for increasing the capacity of the muscles to lengthen and stretch during pregnancy (pelvic floor, abdominal and soft tissues surrounding the pelvis) can also make the joints more hypermobile.
In addition to this the muscles have to hold everything in place while the intra-abdominal pressure (the pressure inside the tummy caused by the baby growing and everyday actions such as coughing, laughing and lifting weights) will keep increasing during the nine months.
During pregnancy your women’s health physiotherapist will help you by:
- Prescribing safe exercises and advice for you to stay fit and healthy
- Teaching you about posture and strategies that may help you to reduce the risk of strain and discomfort on your lower back and pelvic joints during pregnancy
- Treating and preventing low back pain or pelvic girdle pain.
