Shockwave Therapy



  • A non-invasive and non-surgical approach to relieving chronic conditions.
  • Shockwave Therapy involves running a small hand-held machine over the affected area, sending transient acoustic waves to interact with tissue, resulting in accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration. 
  • A thorough assessment must be performed by our physiotherapist to determine if Shockwave Therapy is a suitable treatment for your condition.
  • How it works (3 steps): The therapist locates the area to be treated through palpation, a gel is applied to help the acoustic waves get to the right spot, and the a Shockwave applicator (a small hand-held machine) is slightly pushed against the area to be treated.
  • For the treatment to be effective, a course of 3-5 sessions may be recommended.
