Shockwave Therapy may sound intense, but it can be a life-changer for many people. It’s a non-invasive surgical procedure that involves directing strong sound waves to damaged tissue in the affected area, stimulating it to heal.
✓ Reduces inflammation
✓ Stimulates healing
✓ Minimal side effects
✓ Quicker recovery
Shockwave should be considered for treatment of chronic conditions (> 3 months) that have not responded to conservative treatments, such as shoes, orthotics and exercises. Possible side effects include discomfort around the area of injury, and bruising, but this is rare.
Shockwave Therapy is not recommended if you:
The sound waves break up the tissue, creating small tunnels through which new blood vessels can grow, and the increased blood supply allows the tissue to heal. The result is a reduction in inflammation and pain from the affected ligament.
Generally, Shockwave Therapy has fewer side effects compared to surgery, and offers quicker recovery time. It also eliminates the risks associated with surgery and general anaesthesia.
The Shockwave Therapy procedure is performed here in our office using the latest technology.
