Shockwave therapy is an effective, non-invasive clinically provien treatment for for soft tissue inuries, specifically Achilles tendon & plantar fascia issues when they have become chronic. Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. 

What conditions can benefit from the use of shockwave therapy

  • Achilles tendon pain

  • Heel spur
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Plantar fascia pain
For optimal results 3-5 sessions are required, 7 days apart & combined with targeted load management strategies. 

Medical Effects

High energy acoustic waves used in shockwave therapy interact with tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration. 

  • New blood vessel formation
  • Reversal of chronic inflammation
  • Stimulation of collagen production
  • Dispersion of pain mediator 'Substance P'
