The Process:

Occurring within your regular physiotherapy or chiropractic session, your physio or chiro will use a device to deliver high-energy sound waves which penetrate the skin to stimulate your body’s natural tissue repair mechanisms. A typical session at infinite Health will involve the following:​​

  1. The area of pain or discomfort is located, marked, and ultrasound gel is applied.

  2. The hand-held device is moved over the skin of the affected area, touching the skin lightly.

  3. Sound waves are delivered in short pulses to the area.

Shockwave Therapy Sydney: In the Clinic

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, Infinite Health recommends between 4 to 6 sessions to get the best results; however, pain is often significantly improved after just one or two treatments.

 

If your physiotherapist or chiropractor 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is shockwave therapy?

 

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to relieve pain and promote healing. It is a safe and effective alternative to surgery or medication for many conditions, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and chronic back pain.

 

Shockwave therapy works by stimulating the body's natural repair process. The sound waves trigger the release of growth factors at a cellular level and promotes the formation of new blood vessels. This increases blood flow to the area and speeds up the healing process.

 

A series of shockwave treatments is usually required for optimal results. Most people experience a significant reduction in pain after just a few sessions.

 

If you are suffering from chronic pain, shockwave therapy Sydney sessions may be a good option for you. It is important to talk to your doctor or a qualified health care professional to see if this treatment is right for you.

 

Is shockwave therapy painful?

 

Shockwave therapy is not very painful, although you may feel a brief sensation of pressure or vibration when the shockwaves are applied. Some patients report feeling a mild tingling sensation afterwards, but this typically goes away within a few hours. Some patients may experience bruising or redness in the treated area, but this is usually temporary and will resolve on its own within a few days.

 

Will I be able to resume normal activities after shockwave therapy?

 

Yes, you should be able to resume your normal activities after shockwave therapy. There may be some soreness or bruising in the treatment area, but this should resolve within a few days.

 

Is shockwave therapy a stand-alone treatment?

 

Shockwave therapy can often be used as a stand-alone treatment, particularly for minor injuries. However, in some cases it may be necessary to use shockwave therapy alongside other treatments such as physiotherapy or chiropractic care. This will depend on the nature and severity of the injury. If you are unsure whether shockwave therapy is right for you, it is always best to seek professional advice from a qualified healthcare practitioner.

 

Infinite Health adopts a comprehensive treatment program when it comes to pain management solutions. Our approach to pain relief encompasses a diverse range of approaches including our Sydney remedial massage treatments, which will also help to promote recovery.

 

Will insurance cover the cost of shockwave therapy?

 

Dry needling is administered by trained professionals including physiotherapists, chiropractors or remedial massage therapists. As such, shockwave therapy is covered by private health insurance if you have any of these benefits on your policy.
