What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine and urology. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. It boasts a good effectiveness ratio and does not require any surgery or anaesthesia.
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. The high-energy acoustic pulses produced by our Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy unit improve metabolism in the pain region, increasing blood circulation, effectively stimulating the body’s intrinsic repair mechanisms.
As a result of shockwave therapy, damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. Essentially, Shockwave Therapy is all about activating the body’s self-healing abilities. It is an ideal pain relief and mobility increasing therapy. Being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers, it is the ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various issues causing acute or chronic pain.
What are the functions of Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy - How does it help?
Shockwave Therapy works for a variety of different conditions. As it is pain free and non surgical it can be used on many different regions of the body, such as:

- Elbow – tennis and golfer’s elbow
- Shoulder – calcific tendinosis of rotator cuff muscles

Shockwave Therapy Multiple Benefits
Shockwave Therapy can also be used for: erectile dysfunction, skin rejuvenation and others.
Some pain may be present shortly after treatment, like tenderness or soreness in the area, but this is because shockwaves stimulate an anti-inflammatory response, so any pain you feel is just the body healing itself naturally.
Anti-inflammatory medication should not be taken after treatment as this could slow down the body’s inflammatory response.
