Shockwave Therapy

Is a fast and effective non-surgical treatment option for a range of painful conditions. The shockwave stimulates your body's immune system and reboots tissue healing. 

New blood vessel formation

Blood flow is vital for tissue healing and regeneration of damaged tissue. Shockwave therapy can stimulate growth of new blood vessels and speed up tissue healing.

Reverse chronic inflammation

Chronic inflammation occurs when the inflammatory response is not completely stopped which can lead to tissue damage and chronic pain. Shockwave therapy can reverse chronic inflammation by restoring your natural healing processes.

Break down calcification

Calcification can build up in tendons following micro-tears and other trauma. Shockwave therapy can break down calcium deposits and allows it to be reabsorbed by the body.

Conditions treated

Highly effective for shin splints, epicondylitis (tennis elbow/golfers elbow), plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, chronic tendinopathy, trigger points, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), greater trochanteric pain syndrome and many more.


What can I expect during shockwave therapy?

Each shockwave therapy session will last between 5-10 minutes and involves involves positioning the shockwave therapy hand piece onto the injured area to deliver between 2000-3000 shocks.

How many sessions will I need?

You will require between 4 to 6 separate treatment sessions approximately 1 week apart to complete a course of shockwave therapy. If you are suffering from a chronic condition, you may require up to 8 sessions.

How can I prevent a sport injury?

Injury prevention requires a targeted strength and conditioning program in addition to self maintenance exercises. You will require a sport specific recovery program which will significantly improve your performance and reduce your injury risk.

Over 80% of patients report significant improvement to their pain after a course of shockwave therapy.
