The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for Knee Osteoarthritis

Have you ever heard of Shockwave therapy and wondered what it is, or wondered what conditions it can help? Shockwave therapy is becoming a more popular treatment option for patients, and recent
research is showing that it can specifically help those suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee.

Knee osteoarthritis is a very common condition seen amongst patients, with the most common symptoms being chronic knee pain and limited knee joint mobility.

Recent research has shown Shockwave therapy can help reduce chronic pain in patients with knee osteoarthritis, including those
whose pain resides on the inside part of the knee (An et. al, 2020).

Research has also shown that Shockwave therapy can have beneficial effects on cartilage (it can actually grow back) in the knee, as well as the surrounding bone and soft tissues.

Shockwave therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for most patients. It can be included as part of any Athletic Therapy treatment program with either Daniel or Ashley.

Our Athletic Therapists will fully assess the area and provide any other treatment recommendations that may help improve
overall progress in combination with shockwave therapy.
