Focused Shock Wave Therapy is a cutting-edge non-invasive treatment method that harnesses the power of shock waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. It's often used to treat injured bones, joints, muscles, tendons and other soft tissues. This revolutionary technology is reshaping the way we approach pain management and musculoskeletal disorders.
In the body, these high energy acoustic waves stimulate the cells and the body’s intrinsic healing mechanism. By using Extracorporeal Focused Shock Wave Therapy, the wave is focused through a lens and transmitted into the body, up to a depth of about 4.7”.
Because of the conditions it is used to treat, shock wave therapy is commonly used by athletes or those with ‘overuse’ injuries, although studies show it can benefit anyone currently undergoing physiotherapy for a range of complaints.
With no need for painkillers, shock wave therapy can offer fast pain relief and aid recovery for a range of chronic conditions including:
Pain Relief: Experience relief from chronic pain and discomfort.
Faster Healing: Accelerate your body’s natural healing abilities.
Improved Mobility: Regain your freedom of movement.
No Surgery: Avoid invasive procedures and long recovery times.
Quick Sessions: Short, efficient treatment sessions.
Stimulate Collagen: Enhance tissue regeneration.
Patients with Chronic Pain: Those struggling with persistent pain conditions.
Athletes: Recover faster from sports-related injuries.

Includes three targeted sessions spaced 5-10 days apart. Following these sessions, a fourth follow-up appointment, scheduled one month after the third treatment, assesses progress and guides the necessity for future sessions. This important session educates patients on continued healing up to a year later. Our commitment extends beyond the treatment room, providing you with a nutritional support to optimize your recovery during this extended period.
After completing a package, these sessions target specific concerns, offering personalized care for continued improvement and ensuring you receive the precise attention your body deserves.
