Shockwave Therapy

  • What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a high intensity shock wave transmitted from an applicator through  the skin.  Shockwaves increase the healing process by stimulating blood flow to the area of treatment. An increase in blood flow assists to increase tissue repair and reduce pain.

  • What are the benefits of Shockwave Therapy?

We prescribe and apply Shockwave therapy because it doesn’t require any anaesthetic and has very few serious side effects. It is relatively pain-free and you can return to work straight after your treatment. Depending on your condition, you may be able to continue to exercise throughout your treatment sessions.

Most of our clients report of feeling better straight after their treatment, or within a few hours or days. They continue to improve following further sessions.

  • Indications for Shockwave therapy

Shockwave treatment is most effective in the following conditions:


  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Elbow tendinopathy (tennis elbow & golfer’s elbow) 
  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • Calcific shoulder
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain & osteoarthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

If you have one of these conditions and it has not responded to other forms of treatment, shockwave therapy is likely an appropriate intervention to assist your recovery.This form of treatment is not suitable for all patients; it will be recommended by your Physiotherapist if appropriate.
