  • Hamstrings


    Treatment of the hamstrings often involves tendon treatment, myofascial release and trigger point therapy all using radial shockwave. Tendon treatment is the same for the hamstring tendons as it is for any other tendon. There are lots of studies investigating the effects of shockwave therapy on tendinopathy. There are three main reasons for using shockwave on hamstring tendons:…

  • Piriformis Syndrome

    Piriformis Syndrome

    This example includes treatment for both myofascial release and trigger point therapy using radial shockwave. The myofascial release is to the glutes and the trigger point therapy is to the piriformis. These areas are often found to be dysfunctional together. Shockwave trigger point therapy uses the concept of mechanical energy separating the fixed actin-myosin links…

  • GTPS


    Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS), also known as trochanteric bursitis, greater trochanteric bursitis or hip bursitis, is inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, a sac of fluid protecting the prominent bony part of the hip. The bursa is at the top, outer side of the femur, between the insertion of the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus muscles into…
