Shockwave Therapy – The Non-Surgical Solution to Becoming Pain Free
We have invested in a state of the art Shockwave machine
We have invested in a state of the art Shockwave machine. Radial Shockwave therapy is often used as an alternative to surgery for people experiencing persistent pain from injuries that have not responded to other treatments.
Working with a practitioner can result in faster pain relief to the injured area. Combining physiotherapy with Shockwave technology has been shown to deliver more energy to the right spot, requiring fewer treatments over time.
Manual Therapy involves the use of the physiotherapist’s hands to mobilise the joints of the spine and extremities, create movement in nerve tissue or facilitate the activation, flexibility and normal tone of muscle.
Several different techniques can be used to restore normal motion (not too much, not too little) and regain control of that motion. This allows each region of the body to move fully, efficiently and safely.
Examples of conditions we can treat with Shockwave Therapy
- Achilles Tendinopathies
- Tennis Elbow
- Plantar Fasciopathy (often called Policeman’s foot)
- Shoulder Tendinopathies
- GTPS (also known as Trochanteric Bursitis)
- Hamstring Tendinopathies
- Knee pain

- Most patients notice an improvement between the 2nd and 3rd treatments
- Treatments sessions are short – typically under 30 minutes

Is Shockwave Therapy Right for You?
Typically, Shockwave is used when you experience chronic pain from a condition that has not responded to other treatments such as anti-inflammatories, physiotherapy or acupuncture. You may have had several cortisone injections and now the only other solution being offered is surgery.
