Shockwave Therapy is a non invasive technique to consider if all your other treatment options have failed. It can be used to treat longstanding pain and discomfort. A hand-held device is moved over a conductive gel on the skin, sending waves of energy to painful areas in the body. These mechanical pressure pulses – known as shockwaves – work by reinjuring/kick starting the healing process that has ceased in the effected tendons and tissues.
Shockwave Therapy is a non surgical option to shoulder pain, back pain, hip pain, knee and foot pain. From plantar fasciitis to chronic shoulder pain to hip bursitis, a treatment session only lasts 15 minutes and is grouped into a course of 3 sessions. Once the 3 appointments are completed you are reassessed and any further treatment needed is discussed. Even better, you can continue your daily life between sessions although your therapist may advise upon adapting your routine if they feel it is aggravating the condition you are seeking treatment for.
