The number 1 non invasive option for tendinopathy

80% success rate with patients who follow the recommended protocols and lifestyle advice

What is Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a handheld device that sends pulses of painless energy through the soft tissues focused at the painful area. It is proving excellent at treating sub chronic and chronic persistent soft tissue conditions. 

The therapy was historically developed from lithotripsy, which is a treatment for kidney stones. It sends shockwave through the soft tissues and breaks down the targeted tissue without causing harm to the the other tissues. Since the late 1990's Shockwave therapy has been used for soft tissue injuries such as injured or inflamed tendons or if you wish to speed up recovery or an injury. After over 20 years of success and evidence it is proven to be the number one choice for non-invasive tendinopathy.

What to expect when having a shockwave treatment

Your first appointment with any of our practitioners will initially involve a detailed case history and examination. Our practitioners will spend time with you to diagnose and fully explain what is causing your problem. They will then explain a course of action to get you out of pain and up and running again followed by beginning treatment in the same initial appointment. 

What to wear for an appointment

We find that wearing sports wear like shorts and a vest or sports bra. Something that you are comfortable in, non-restricting and won't affect the practitioners ability to examine you. Finally feel free to bring someone with you if you would find it more comfortable.
