Physio Therapeutic Massage Clinic is pleased to provide our patients with the opportunity to receive shockwave therapy.

Radial shockwave therapy uses high pressured acoustic shock waves that travel through the skin to break down targeted tissue and stimulate tissue repair. Mostly it kicks starts the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Shockwave Therapy is An Effective Treatment Approach

Shockwave therapy is a research proven treatment approach useful in fixing many chronic musculoskeletal conditions, including among other complaints:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Calcification of the shoulder
  • Patella tendinopathy
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Shin splints

Shockwave therapy is frequently effective where previous conservative management has failed to resolve notoriously stubborn complaints.

How Soon Will I See Results With Shockwave Therapy?

Most patients experience a small pain reduction and a greater range of movement immediately after the procedure, which is usually temporary and real results seen after a few days when the injuries begin to heal. Depending on your condition, healing can take weeks to months. However, pain relief usually precedes this area.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

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

What Does a Shockwave Therapy Session Involve?

Radial shockwave therapy is a safe, non-invasive procedure. A contact gel applied to the area, then a hand-held probe is being implemented to the skin. The probe delivers the acoustic waves in a controlled and focused manner for typically 5-10 minutes per injured area.

What Does a Course of Shockwave Therapy Involve?

A course of shockwave therapy usually consists of weekly treatments for 3-6 weeks, where conditions more chronic or significant are likely to require the longer treatment course.
