Understanding Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy harnesses the power of high-energy acoustic waves, also known as radial pressure waves, to target injured tissues. This innovative treatment initiates a localised healing response within your body, promoting pain reduction and tissue repair.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

Pain Reduction

By creating micro-ruptures in soft tissues, Shockwave Therapy stimulates blood flow to the affected area, triggering localised inflammation. This natural response kickstarts your body's healing process, resulting in pain reduction and enhanced mobility.

Inflammation Cycle Reset

Shockwave Therapy interrupts the chronic non-healing cycle in tissues, prompting them to enter the reparative stage and accelerate healing.

Collagen Production

Stimulating collagen production is crucial for tissue repair. Shockwave Therapy jumpstarts collagen synthesis, aiding in the repair of muscles, tendons, and soft tissues.

New Blood Vessel Formation

Adequate blood flow is essential for tissue repair. Shockwave Therapy encourages the growth of new blood vessels, ensuring optimal oxygen supply to promote faster healing.

Calcium Build-Up Dissolution

Calcium build-ups in chronically injured tissues can impede healing. Shockwave Therapy breaks down these calcifications, restoring tissue function.

Trigger Point Release

By gradually releasing trigger points in muscles, Shockwave Therapy alleviates pain and improves muscle function.

The Shockwave treatment process involves:
Targeted Localisation

We use palpation to pinpoint the treatment area accurately.

Application of Ultrasound Gel

A sufficient amount of ultrasound gel is applied to ensure optimal transmission of acoustic waves.

Treatment Administration

The handheld probe is placed on the treatment area, delivering high-energy acoustic waves. Each session typically lasts 10-20 minutes.
