What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that is ideal for treating a range of painful conditions, all over the body. Popular with orthopaedics, sports therapists and more, it’s used all over the world as a means of pain relief and to improve mobility.

Not only does it reduce and stop acute and chronic pain but it’s also efficient at speeding up recovery times.

Here, we highlight how Shockwave Therapy works in more detail as well as the range of health conditions and chronic pains that it can treat. However, if you’re suffering, why not get in touch for a free consultation?

How does it work?

The handheld device uses high energy waves to focus on painful areas. Acoustic waves are absorbed into the body’s tissue and cells, stimulating regeneration and healthy growth from within bones, soft tissues and tendons.

Shockwaves spread into nerve endings, desentisting them – many patients feel their pain eased immediately. A pro-inflammatory reaction is also promoted within the body, in turn boosting metabolism and blood circulation. This re-starts the healing process from within.

What does it do?

As the Shockwave’s acoustic waves interact with the body’s tissues and cells, a number of restoration processes occur. These include:

  • Formation of new blood vessels – this helps to start and maintain the repair process of damaged tissue
  • Reversal of inflammation – this helps to ease pain and boost mobility
  • Boosted collagen production – this helps to renew and revive the body’s tissue
  • Dissolution of Calcified Fibroblasts – this helps to reduce the likelihood of micro-tears and other traumas
  • Reduction of painful trigger points – this helps to unblock the calcium pump and typically reduces pain in the neck, back, shoulder and limbs.

What does it treat?

Shockwave therapy treatment can be used to treat a number of painful conditions, when conventional treatments may have failed to provide relief. Some of the most common conditions that have been treated successfully include:

  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Plantar Fascitis
  • Rotator Cuff Strain
  • Patella Tendinitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Jumper’s Knee
  • Painful joints
  • Heel Spur
  • Insertional pain
  • Hip and back pain

What can I expect during the treatment?

Your therapist will be able to advise on a personal treatment plan but, typically, Shockwave Therapy is carried out in three easy steps. First, we’ll locate the desired treatment area. Then, we’ll apply a gel to ensure the treatment and waves are absorbed efficiently. It’s then time for your treatment to begin.

Before we begin, we’ll be sure to explain exactly what’s going to happen as well as answer any queries you may have.

Yes, we wouldn’t use any treatment, device or product that wasn’t. It’s been created following extensive clinical use and all of our therapists are trained in it.

This will depend on a few factors – what we’re treating, how long you’ve been suffering with the pain and how well your body responds to it. Most people need around 3-5 treatments. However, some of our patients have only needed 1 session. It’s likely that you’ll feel some pain relief immediately after the first treatment too. It’s worth noting that if you need multiple treatments, we usually leave a 3-10 day gap between each one.

You may experience some slight discomfort but this usually depends on how painful the treatment area is to begin with. Typically, treatment lasts about 5 minutes and we can usually find a way of making you more comfortable with cushions.

Immediately after the treatment you may experience pain relief. Approximately 2-4 hours after the treatment you may feel some tenderness in the treatment area but this is usually tolerable.

We advise patients to refrain from carrying out any strenuous physical activity until 48 hours after the procedure. This is especially important if the activity would involve the treatment area.
