The Benefit of Shockwave Therapy with a Physiotherapist…
We believe that the benefit of having ECSWT performed by a physiotherapist is that we can administer an appropriate exercise regime as well as other treatment parameters that are still considered paramount for the treatment of all tendinopathies.
