Shockwave Therapy

Do you need to get back to your regular activities after a injury? Fast track the recovery of injuries using shockwave therapy.

WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?
Shockwave Therapy or Radial Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) can provide patients with a treatment for a range of conditions such as chronic tendon injuries; for example Achilles tendinitis or tennis elbow. These conditions can be problematic to resolve.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Shockwave Therapy produces a high amplitude wave frequency that travels through the skin to stimulate tissue repair and creates pain relief; it is a safe and non- invasive therapy.

Shockwave Therapy has a number of roles in treating musculoskeletal disorders which allows for the immediate improvement of symptoms. In combination with other treatment, Shockwave Therapy can significantly provide a positive result for clients in treating chronic injuries.

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
Patients typically require approx. 4-5 treatments. and usually have an immediate improvement in pain levels following treatment. The treatment provides not only symptom relief but treats the musculoskeletal pathology and can allow patients to return to activity sooner compared to traditional conservative treatments.

We do provide patients with tailored strengthening exercises. This will be provided by your practitioner who specialises in tendon rehabilitation.

 

WHAT IS THE EVIDENCE?
There have been numerous studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of Shockwave Therapy. Evidence based research suggests that up to 80% of patients experienced a successful result following Shockwave Therapy treatment for tendon injuries.
