Lithotripsy Shockwave Treatment

Under the management of the orthopaedic surgeons at Fulwood Hall Hospital, extracorporeal lithotripsy also know as Shockwave therapy, is provided for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders such as persistent tendinopathy, particularly chronic plantar fasciitis.

This 5-10 minute treatment provides impulses, accelerated by compressed air, to the tissue in the form of a shock wave which continues to spread inside the body.
