Frequently Asked Questions

Please find below some of our frequently asked questions about our shockwave therapy treatment – you can find even more FAQs in our full FAQs section.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy, also referred to as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a non-surgical and non-invasive technology that delivers sound waves to aid recovery for a number of common musculoskeletal conditions.

What can it treat?

A wide-range of symptoms including back pain and lower back pain, tennis elbow, hip pain, tendon pain and damage to tendons (including damage to the Achilles tendon).

How does it work?

For orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions, shockwaves are transmitted to the area to accelerate healing. Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) stimulates the body’s natural repairing process by passing short, intense sound waves into affected tissues. These intense sound waves can increase blood flow, which stimulates restoration and regeneration. Following Shockwave Therapy, your cells are put into repair mode, allowing your body to restart its own accelerated healing process.

How successful is Shockwave Therapy?

It depends on the conditions treated, but statistics show over 90% of patients experience a reduction in their pain. In patients that suffer from plantar fasciitis and heel pain related problems, pain reduction is remarkable, with 39 studies showing a success rate of 94% in treating Plantar Fasciitis. The overall success rates for all conditions range between 60% – 80%.

Are there any side effects?

Normally patients experience a reduced level of pain in their condition or no pain at all immediately after the treatment, but a mild and/or diffused pain may occur a few hours later. This dull pain will subside after a day or so. Shockwave therapy treatment initiates a pro-flammatory response in the tissue that is being treated. If necessary, you may use prescription-free pain killers. Do not use anti inflammatory medication or apply ice on the treated area as both may interfere with the body’s self-healing process.
