Shockwave therapy

What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)?

ESWT is a therapy where sound waves are introduced into the body to promote a healing effect. Although shockwaves were originally used to shatter kidney stones, the shockwaves that is used in musculoskeletal therapy are gentle and are designed to activate cellular mechanisms for healing. The shockwaves stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation, so that damaged tissue can regenerate and fully heal.

Therapeutic shockwave is clinically proven and evidence-based. It is used by many doctors and therapists treating musculoskeletal issues around the world, in clinics and in hospitals.

Our clinic is equipped with some of the latest radial shockwave technology available. We utilize additional transmitters to holistically treat musculoskeletal problems, including fascial transmitters designed to treat and solve fascial adhesions in muscle, which is a significant contributor in pain and reduction of movement.

How is shockwave therapy performed?

Your therapist will discuss with you the nature of your pain and determine if shockwave is a suitable treatment for your condition. A gel is then applied to the area to be treated to allow the shock wave to be introduced into the body. Shockwaves are then transmitted into the body via an applicator, to treat the painful regions.

How long does it take and how many sessions are required?

Each shockwave session can take between 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the condition and the disorder being treated. We may combine the shockwave session with other modalities or treatments. On average, 3 to 5 treatments are required at weekly intervals.
