Fast, effective & non-invasive

Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome

Shockwave therapy has emerged as a highly effective treatment option for patients with patellar tendinopathy. By utilising focused shockwaves, this non-invasive procedure promotes tissue regeneration, increases blood flow, and reduces inflammation in the affected area. With its ability to target the source of pain and stimulate healing, shockwave therapy offers a promising solution for managing patellar tendinopathy. Clinical studies have significantly improved pain reduction, functional outcomes, and overall patient satisfaction. As a safe and well-established treatment, shockwave therapy is rapidly becoming the go-to choice for those seeking effective relief from patellar tendinopathy.

What is Trochanteric Pain Syndrome?

Trochanteric Pain Syndrome, also known as Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome, is a condition characterised by pain and tenderness on the outside of the hip. The main clinical symptoms are pain and reproducible tenderness in the greater trochanter region and/or the buttock or lateral thigh. 


It commonly affects the greater trochanter, a bony prominence on the side of the hip. The greater trochanter is the site of attachment for the tendons of five muscles: the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus laterally, and the piriformis, obturator externus and obturator internus medially. 


Trochanteric Pain Syndrome can result from various factors such as overuse, muscle imbalances, inflammation, or injury to the tendons or bursae in the hip area. Individuals with this condition often experience pain while walking, running, or lying on the affected side.
