This is a gold standard treatment for many chronic soft tissue complaints and tendinopathies. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses high powered sound waves through the tissue using the shockwave probe which is applied to the skin. These sound waves promote regeneration and repair of the soft tissues by causing a local inflammation, which attracts those cells for the healing process, thus giving things a bit of a ‘kick start’. There can be some mild discomfort felt with this treatment. This is done as a course of treatments, and often 3-5 sessions is sufficient to significantly reduce pain and improve function.
