Radial Shockwave therapy is an effective non-surgical treatment for painful disorders.
Shock Wave therapy is has traditionally been used by medical professionals to treat kidney stones. In recent times, it has been used in physiotherapy and orthopaedics to treat musculoskeletal conditions – particularly tendon injuries and pain.
Shock Wave therapy is believed to promote a healing environment in injured tissue by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels, growth factors, increasing cell proliferation and reducing inflammatory markers.
Sessions & Investments
Recommendation of 4 to 6 treatment sessions are usually required, with each session 5-10 days apart. Improvement in pain can sometimes be noticed immediately after the first session and as late as 6 to 8 weeks after the last session – dependent on the condition and individual’s response to treatment.
