Supercharge your recovery
with shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and effective treatment option for a range of musculoskeletal conditions such as tendonitis, trigger points (knots), tendon/ligament tears and stubborn injuries that just won’t settle. Common conditions can include plantar fasciitis, gluteal tendinopathy, rotator cuff disorders, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow and calcific tendinosis; just to name a few.

What can I expect during a shockwave therapy session?

Following a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will use shockwave therapy in conjunction with other suitable treatments. Between 2000-4000 shocks are delivered to the required treatment area which can take up to 10 minutes to complete.

There is usually mild discomfort during the treatment, however, the power output can be adjusted to comfortable levels at any time. Most clients require a minimum of 4-6 shockwave therapy sessions to achieve the desired result.

New blood vessel formation

Blood flow is vital for tissue healing and regeneration of damaged tissue. Other electrotherapies may dilate blood vessels, shockwave therapy creates new ones (neovascularisation) which aids tissue regeneration and healing.

Reverse chronic inflammation

Chronic inflammation occurs when there is a disruption to the inflammatory response. Shockwave therapy stimulates the release of Chemokines and Cytokines which can restore the natural healing process.

Break down calcification

Calcification can build up in tendons following micro-tears and other trauma. Shockwave therapy can break down calcium deposits and allows them to be reabsorbed by the body. This helps restore tendons back to their natural state.
