How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Our shockwave therapy treatments are all conducted by our highly qualified Osteopaths. The treatment involves delivering high-intensity radial shockwaves to your injury site. The shockwave is pneumatically generated and delivered via a hand-piece targeted DIRECTLY at the tendon in question. Each treatment session lasts approximately 3-7 minutes. Delivering a rapid 2500 pulsed shockwaves to the tendon. Approximately 82%* of patients report a reduction in pain immediately following the treatment.  While others can take 4-5 sessions to achieve this level of pain reduction.

The body’s natural healing process continues long after the treatment. To complement this healing process, it is vital to combine these treatment sessions with specific rehabilitation and strengthening exercises. In doing this we are able to minimize the risk of re-injury. As well as achieving long-lasting pain relief.  

The research suggests that optimal results are achieved with between  3-5 treatment sessions.
