Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave is a revolutionary treatment solution that is highly effective at resolving pain and treating injury for many soft-tissue and bone injuries.

An RPW shock wave is a non-invasive, nonelectrical: high energy sound wave that passes through the body via a hand-held probe. This innovative treatment speeds up the body's natural healing processes.

What Are Shock Waves?

RPW Shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment in which a hand held device is used to pass acoustic waves into the body. When introduced in to the body the shock waves and pressure waves have effects on a cellular level that are beneficial for healing, increased blood flow, formation of new blood vessels and create an environment for tissue repair. It has a significant effect on the body’s pain regulating mechanisms and results in considerable pain relief.

We offer you a thorough assessment and accurate diagnosis, then explain to you what the cause of your symptoms are. Treatment commences immediately to start making improvements, but we also formulate and implement a long-term plan to get you better and stay better.
