Accelerate Healing with Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy (SWT) is a fast and effective non-invasive method of eliminating or reducing many painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. It uses an electro-magnetic generator to physically deliver the shockwave through the skin, into the body.  The high-energy acoustic waves that are transmitted through the surface of the skin are spread radially (spherically) into the body and the body responds with increased metabolic activity around the area of the pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process.

SWT has been shown to have a 80 to 90% success rate if all underlying issues are addressed as well. Shockwave Therapy will be applied as part of your Physiotherapy Treatment by our fully qualified and registered Physiotherapists.

Shockwave Therapy uses acoustic sound waves together with the body’s own ability to repair tissue by stimulating circulation in all layers of the skin,

including blood vessels, connective tissue and muscles.
