Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive physiotherapy treatment that delivers low-energy sound waves to injured tissue via a gel medium. The acoustic waves are forced into the body through strong pulses that penetrate injured tissue and stimulate the cells in the body that are responsible for connective tissue healing.

How does it work?

Shockwave interacts with the injured tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, pain relief and mobility restoration.

  • New blood vessels are formed through the creation of capillary micro ruptures in the tendon and bone.
  • Chronic inflammation is reduced due to increased mast cell activity and collagen production is stimulated.
  • Calcium build-up in calcific disorders are dispersed.
  • The release of pain reducing chemicals is triggered and chronic trigger points are released.
