Our therapists at Infinite Health are proud to be one of a few clinics to offer shockwave therapy as a modern pain management solution.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a treatment method that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation. As a therapeutic technique it is gentle on tissue and has minimal risks or side effects.
What this means for you...
Immediate pain relief
Accelerated healing process
Deeper penetration to target deep tissue areas
Our results with shockwave therapy have been exceptional because we perform targeted treatment and combine it with a very comprehensive rehabilitation approach incorporating eccentric training and biomechanical correction.
In the clinic we use shock wave therapy as an adjunct to various other techniques such as soft tissue releases, mobilisations, muscle energy techniques, exercise rehabilitation and biomechanical corrections.
The actual shockwave therapy will last between 5 and 10 minutes, during which your physiotherapist will use the applicator to deliver the shock waves to the target area. On average, 4 to 6 sessions will be necessary to get the best results, however pain is often significantly improved after just one or two treatments.
If your physiotherapist determines that shock wave therapy will help your condition, they will discuss it with you in further detail and answer any questions or concerns you may have before beginning.
