Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment modality for those suffering from many joint and tendon disorders. Acoustic waves generated by Shockwave promote regeneration & reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
Shockwave therapy provides fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Those with soft tissue injuries can benefit, particularly physically active individuals and athletes.
As Shockwave is a form of treatment provided by your physiotherapist, there is no referral required.
Shockwave may be used in treatment should your physiotherapist determine it would be of benefit. There is no additional charge other than your regular visit fee.
There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.
