Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy Slider

Extracorporeal Shockwave (ESWT), usually just called shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment which can be effective in treating a range of tendonopathies and plantar fasciitis.

The shockwave machine administers a fast impact pulsing directly over the skin of the area being treated. The goal is to help breaks up adhesions and stimulate a healing response.

There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during treatment depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. The intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.

The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. Typically you will need more than one treatment, very often though you will experience relief after the first session.

Our general approach is that if we perform a relatively “strong” session of shockwave within patient tolerance, we will achieve a response in 1-2 visits, if shockwave is going to be affective.

Usually a maximum of 3 to 5 treatments is all that is required.

Shockwave Therapy is renowned for fast pain relief and mobility restoration! It is an extremely safe modality that can be very beneficial to patients with a number of conditions. The acoustic pressure waves are delivered through the body and are focused on the site of pain or injury.
Most of our hands on practitioners can perform shockwave therapy as part of your consult.
