Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy

What is Shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical procedure to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. Shock waves can accelerate the healing process in the body, they stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation; damaged tissue can regenerate and fully heal.

Shock waves are audible high-energy soundwaves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones.

Many years of experience have confirmed that certain pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words the root causes of your pain – can be eliminated systematically with this therapy approach.

After only 1 – 2 treatment sessions, most patients report complete pain relief or significant pain reduction. Statistics vary based on the condition being treated – varying from 60-90% success rate.

Studies have shown 90% of patients with Achilles Tendonitis (Heel pain) will experience a full recovery or significant reduction in their pain and injury.

Studies have also shown that 96% of people with plantar fasciitis will experience a full recovery.

Each treatment session varies between 10 – 30 minutes. The amount of treatment sessions will vary dependant on the type of shockwave used and conditions being treated.

As a general rule 3 – 6 treatment sessions is advised. As this is encouraging the body to heal itself your body will progress in the healing process even 2-3 months after treatment has stopped.

If performed by qualified therapists, extra-corporeal shock wave therapy of musculoskeletal pain has minimal risks and side effects.
