Shockwave Therapy – What is it?

Maximum results in a minimum of time. Shockwave is the ideal treatment method for chronic and complex musculoskeletal conditions. Treatment results in pain reduction, regeneration of affected tissue and breakdown of calcification and fibrosis.

Shockwave Therapy is a radial / mechanical pressure waves treatment, designed to speed up recovery and reduce pain. It is clinically proven and highly effective for the treatment of acute or chronic soft tissue conditions and injuries. The high-energy impulses activate and speed up the healing process in a completely natural way by; producing a rapid increase in blood circulation, break down of scar tissue and stimulating cell regeneration by kick-starting the inflammatory process which results in the reduction of pain and improving function.

Shockwave is a non invasive, safe alternative to injections or surgery for really chronic injuries and is ideal for those conditions where patients do not seem to be able to get rid of their pain despite every effort.

Shockwave Therapy – What can I expect from my treatment?

After a Shockwave therapy appointment, you may experience a slight and temporary increase in pain before feeling the decrease in pain in the affected area begins. However, many patients experience an improvement in symptoms almost immediately, while others can take several weeks to respond.
