Do You Have Knee Osteoarthritis?

Have you considered Focused Shockwave Therapy for non-invasive treatment of Osteoarthritis of the knee?

Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of chronic knee pain in older adults.

The Evidence
Multiple randomised trials have shown that focused shockwave is effective for chronic knee pain due to arthritis.

It has been found in clinical research that focused shockwave treatment can accelerate meniscal degeneration healing and plays chondroprotective role in OA (helps to delay the joint space narrowing, improving biomechanics and protecting chondrocytes- cells responsible for cartilage formation). (Cheng et al 2019)
This chondroprotective effect is consistent and beneficial in both early and late-stage OA (wang et al 2012)
Focused shockwave has shown to have beneficial effects on cartilage, subchondral bone and surrounding tissues, as well as providing relief from chronic OA pain (Senbo et al 2020).
