3 Reasons Why Shockwave Therapy Can Speed Up Your Recovery

Are you suffering from chronic pain conditions such as Tennis Elbow, Tendinitis, Heel Spurs or Plantar fasciitis?


Have you tried a range of management strategies such as anti-inflammatory medications (e.g. Brufen, Nurofen or Voltaren), rest, massage or strapping/taping but only got temporary relief or no relief at all?


Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) may be the answer to your problem!


You may have heard of Shockwave therapy from a friend and the great results they had from it.


Like many of our patients, you may even be sceptical or have lost hope after being told by your Doctor that you "just have to live with it".


Physio Physique is extremely passionate about providing drug-free and natural solutions so that you (our valuable patient) can:

  1. live a better and healthier life

  2. be empowered with knowledge and strategies to help yourself

  3. avoid long term use and reliance of harmful medication

One such solution is Shockwave Therapy. We have invested $20,000 in the Belgium engineered Gymna Shockmaster 300, after extremely careful consideration.


There is a ton of research evidence to suggest that ESWT has an 80% success rate for certain conditions.



Here are 3 reason why ESWT can speed up your recovery:


1. Reverse Chronic Inflammation

Chronic inflammation occurs when the inflammatory response is not completely halted. It can damage healthy tissue and results in chronic pain. The acoustic waves found in ESWT can increase the activity mast cells which is a key component of the inflammatory process.


Please note, inflammation is actually good and essential for healing after an acute injury.


2. Rapid Pain Reduction

Substance P is a neurotransmitter that mediates pain and is generally associated with intense, persistent and chronic pain. Shockwave therapy reduces Substance P concentrations which reduces the stimulation of pain fibres. Inflammation can also be reduced as a result of decreased Substance P.


3. Increase Blood Flow

Blood flow is an essential part of healing. Better blood flow = better healing. The application of acoustic waves creates capillary in tendon and bone which in turn provides increased oxygen and nutrients for faster healing.
