What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is the use of a multidisciplinary device to deliver sound waves into the body. It is often used in physiotherapy, orthopaedics, sports medicine, veterinary medicine, and urology. 

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

The Shockwave device fires an acoustic wave into the body to ease painful areas and provide fast pain relief or even restored mobility. The wave can be used to target bones, ligaments, tendons, as well as other soft tissue areas.

What are the benefits of Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive form of therapy and requires no medication for it to be effective. It can also be used in both chronic and non-chronic conditions and can provide the following benefits:

  • Accelerated tissue repair: The acoustic waves of shockwave therapy have a high energy peak that allows them to interact with soft tissue to accelerate the repair of damaged cells.  

  • It encourages the formation of new blood vessels: Sound waves promote the creation of capillary micro ruptures in tendons, muscle, and bone allowing the flow of blood to increase to damaged areas. 

  • It can reduce chronic inflammation: The mast cells in our bodies are essential for the reduction of inflammation. Acoustic waves can increase their activity and effectiveness.

  • Collagen production is stimulated: Collagen is essential for the repair process of the myoskeletal and ligamentous structures in our body and Shockwave therapy accelerates its production.
