What are the main benefits you can expect

The main benefits of shockwave therapy are fast pain relief and improved mobility. As it does not involve surgery and there is no need for painkillers, it is an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and manage acute or chronic (long-term) pain conditions including tendon and muscle problems. Studies have shown a 70–85% success rate across a range of conditions. It may not work for everyone, but shockwave therapy can help most people even when other treatments have failed.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a type of treatment used in orthopaedics, Osteopathy , physiotherapy, sports medicine. It is a non-invasive way of restarting the natural healing process. It does this by causing a short-term (acute) inflammatory response, much like the ‘normal’ process that happens after an injury. The treatment involves using a device to send shockwaves through your skin to influence the affected tissues beneath. The body responds by increasing the blood circulation to, and the metabolism in the affected area.
