How does it work?

Shockwave is a mechanical pressure wave generated acoustically through a hand held piece.
A good example of a shockwave in everyday life with a far greater force is thunder or the supersonic sound of a jet engine, it is a wave that transmits energy.
By sending shockwaves through the tissue it creates changes in the healing process in the body. It can also help to produce an anaesthetic effect in the body too.
Overall, this helps improve inflammatory, nervous, tissue repair function and cellular regeneration. Healing continues to work 3 -4 months after treatment.

What to expect

Following an initial consultation to determine the suitability of Shockwave therapy for your condition, treatments are then typically performed at weekly intervals.
Each treatment session takes around 20-30 minutes with most conditions responding really well within 3-6 treatment sessions.
Many clients experience an improvement in symptoms almost immediately while others can take up to several weeks to start feeling a benefit.
The impulses of energy caused by radial shockwaves passed into the treatment area are felt as rapid pulses which can feel a little uncomfortable but not painful.
Usually your first treatment will start with a low level of intensity which can be increased as you feel more comfortable.
