SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

 

Exclusive at our Chatswood clinic, we 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...

 

  1. Immediate pain relief

  2. Accelerated healing process

  3. 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 shockwave therapy as an adjunct to various other physiotherapy 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.

Aaron believes that pain should be used as a stepping stone for his patients, not a campground! "It is humbling to empower my patients to take control of their health, and achieve their goals...hence why it's the most rewarding part of being a physiotherapist!"
