Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment used to rehabilitate chronic and acute conditions as well as provide pain relief from injuries. Essentially, the technology delivers sound waves to targeted areas of the body in order to stimulate healing.
Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven and also recognised by the top hospitals and medical professionals in the industry, including many well-known sporting bodies.
Drug-free alternative method
This type of treatment is safe, effective and a drug-free alternative to surgery or steroid and other treatment injections. It stimulates the body’s healing process by provoking an acute phase of healing and by stimulating enzymes involved in reducing pain, resulting in high rates of success in treating these difficult to treat conditions.
Shockwave therapy is used to treat a variety of debilitating conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, failed back surgery syndrome, frozen shoulder and chronic low back pain. Additionally, it is also used to treat many other painful conditions including plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia and more.
What conditions can Shockwave Therapy treat?
During shockwave therapy, a handheld device is used to deliver compressed, high-frequency sound waves. These sound waves help stimulate healing by increasing blood flow to the injured area, increasing the synthesis of protein, and activating other metabolic reactions in the cells.
Some of the common conditions it can treat include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Achilles tendon
- Plantar Fasciitis (Heel spur)
- Knee and shin pain
- Elbow and arm pain
- Shoulder and neck pain
- Back pain
- Sport injuries
What are the benefits of Shockwave Therapy?
After receiving shockwave therapy, patients can expect:
- A reduction of pain
- Increase in blood circulation
- Stimulation of the healing process
- Better joint movement
It goes without saying that no treatment can guarantee you will be 100% pain-free but the strong evidence and research behind Shockwave Therapy and the positive results from patients makes it an obvious non-surgical treatment choice.
