Shockwave therapy is an effective, non-invasive, treatment for a range of tendon, muscle and joint conditions. Administered by our Physios, Shockwave Therapy can be used soon after the occurrence of injury to stimulate immediate and ongoing repair. It is also useful for healing older injuries where calcification or damage of tissue is evident. Shockwave Therapy is a treatment method that reduces pain as well as improving function and quality of life. Injuries that fail to respond to conventional treatment often respond well to shock wave therapy.
