Home >how we treat> Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave Therapy is a method of therapy that uses a device to send acoustic waves of high energy pulses into an injury affected area on a person’s body. The device works by creating a microtrauma to the affected area, thus stimulating blood flow and thereby promoting tissue healing. In chronic pain, these Shockwaves create a new inflammatory process, which then kick starts the brain to react by sending the necessary nutrients to promote healing.
Fast pain relief
Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth
Shockwave Therapy is an effective treatment option for a variety of chronic disorders, including:
Shoulder tendonitis / calcification
Plantar fasciitis / foot pain
Tennis elbow / golfers’ elbow
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, then Shockwave Therapy may be the right treatment for you.
Effects start to occur after just 1 session. Most patients will notice a significant improvement in their pain symptoms & recovery within 3-4 sessions & a full treatment course is approximately 12 sessions. Your Physiotherapist will likely combine this with other modalities of treatment to give you the best outcome.
Shockwave therapy provides fast pain relief, accelerates healing, and restores mobility. Being a non-surgical therapy, patients can often avoid painkillers or steroid injections for their injury—which can reduce recovery time. Shockwave therapy is ideal for speeding up the recovery of acute or chronic pain.
