Need pain relief? Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment, using electromechanical energy to ease pain and improve mobility.
Working directly on the source of your pain with pinpoint accuracy, shockwave therapy can help reduce the time you spend managing your condition.
Fast, effective treatment for pain
If you’ve been struggling with a chronic problem that hasn’t responded to traditional musculoskeletal methods of treatment, Shockwave therapy offers a viable alternative with proven results.
A non-invasive way of relieving pain using high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing in specific areas of your body. Then it helps to loosen tight muscles, ease pain by relieving over-stimulated nerves, improve circulation, and reduce tendon tightness and aches.
The application of shockwaves gives pain relief after treatment as well as stimulating long-term tissue normalisation and regeneration.

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.
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.
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).
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.
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%.
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.
