Shockwave Therapy

Have conventional treatments failed to improve your condition? Shockwave therapy might the answer!

Shockwave therapy is a cutting edge treatment previously reserved for the sporting elite and now we are excited to offer shockwave treatments to you.

What is shockwave therapy?

Radial shockwave therapy is a research proven treatment that kickstarts the body’s natural healing mechanisms. It emits high pressure shockwaves that travel through the skin to break down underlying tissues and stimulate tissue repair.

Most patients experience pain reduction and increased movement immediately after a shockwave treatment and lasting results occur when the tissue is healed.

What does shockwave therapy treat?

Shockwave therapy is often used to improve many chronic musculoskeletal conditions including:

  • Muscle pain, strain or injury
  • Frozen shoulder / Rotator cuff injury
  • Tennis / Golfers elbow
  • knee, Ankel & Foot injuries
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Patella tendinopathy
  • Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Shin splints
  • Arthritis

How does shockwave therapy work?

A probe is held against the skin delivering shockwaves in a controlled and focused manner for 5-10 minutes resulting in:

  • Increasing circulation
  • Break down calcification deposits
  • Stimulating production of fibroblast (soft tissue cells) to heal ligaments, tendons, muscles
  • Stimulating production of osteoblast (bone cells) to heal bone
  • Stimulating the “gate-control” mechanism for pain relief
  • Inhibiting Cox II Enzyme, producing an anti-inflammatory effect

How many shockwave treatments will I need?

The more chronic or significant in nature your condition is the more shockwave treatments you will need. A typical course of shockwave therapy consists of weekly treatments for 3-6 weeks.
