Reduces Inflammation

Acoustic energy is delivered to the tissues in your body to reduce inflammation.

Increases Vascularisation

New blood supply improves blood supply and oxygenation of the treated area.

Increases Recovery Process

Shockwave Therapy boosts the repair process by increasing the production of collagen fibres.

What is the Shockwave (ESWT) Therapy process

ESWT is a non-invasive, but very safe, treatment that will cause micro-trauma to your tissues to restart the healing process and provide a window of opportunity for your body to heal.

Your clinician will discuss and plan your treatment as we need to ensure that there is a suitable rehabilitation plan working in conjunction with this to ensure full recovery.

Duration

Sessions last approximately 10 minutes, they should be approximately 7 days apart and research recommends 3-6 sessions. However, our clinicians will guide you.

Pain Levels

The treatment can be painful but you generally experience a reduction in pain levels which can be felt for a few hours after the session. Unfortunately, this will not last and you might experience a post-treatment increase in pain which may last from a few hours to a few days depending on the area being treated and presentation of your symptoms.
