HOW CAN SHOCKWAVE THERAPY HELP ME?
Shockwave therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that can activate the body’s natural healing response, facilitating the recovery of injured tissue rather than just managing pain. This innovative therapy offers a range of additional benefits, including:
The non-invasive nature of shockwave therapy makes it an attractive option for many patients, as it eliminates the need for medication, steroid injections, or surgery. Moreover, with minimal downtime, patients can typically resume their normal activities within just 24 hours after a session.
what does a shockwave therapy appointment look like?
Following your initial assessment with one of our skilled podiatrists, it may be recommended that shockwave therapy is the best treatment for you. Shockwave sessions typically last 15 minutes, depending on the severity of your condition, you may require 3-5 sessions for optimal results.
During the treatment, a cold gel will be applied to the affected area. A probe will then be placed on top of the gel and sound waves will be emitted to the damaged tissues. This may feel like pulsing or vibrations and you will hear a loud tapping noise coming from the machine. This is perfectly normal.
You may experience some discomfort, but rest assured that it is generally well-tolerated. After each session, there is likely to be a good reduction in symptoms.

During shockwave therapy, some individuals may experience mild tenderness, which subsides once the treatment is completed. However, others may not experience any pain at all. It’s worth noting that the severity and initial discomfort of the injury can influence the presence of tenderness. This can be attributed to the gentle pressure applied to the bruised or damaged area. Rest assured, our ability to control the settings and intensity of the pulses allows us to make necessary adjustments as needed.

By carefully evaluating your medical history and symptoms, we can determine whether shockwave therapy may be an effective solution for your injury. If it is, we will guide you through the process and get you started on your treatment journey.
