Shockwave Therapy 

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Pressure Wave (RPW) Shockwave therapy is a procedure where shock waves are passed through the skin to the injured part of the body. Shockwaves are audible, low energy sound waves, which work by increasing blood flow to the injured area, accelerating the body’s natural healing process.

Shockwave offers a non-invasive treatment solution for long term tendon and soft tissue injuries that so far have not responded to other treatments such as rest, ice, pain relief, and possibly steroid injections. The main areas or conditions that it is used to treat are:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Patellar tendinopathy
  • Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
  • Biceps tendinopathy
  • Supraspinatus tendinopathy
  • Trochanteric bursitis

How often should I have Shockwave Therapy?

Treatments sessions should be between 5-10 days apart, and 3-6 treatment sessions should be needed to improve the condition, though in some stubborn instances, this could be longer.

Your physiotherapist will work with you to formulate an effective treatment plan alongside Shockwave therapy to promote the quickest possible reduction in your pain.
