Proven effective in the treatment of chronic heel pain and Achilles injuries. Book now to discuss whether Shockwave Therapy is right for you.
Electrocorporael shockwave therapy uses mechanical high-energy sound waves to stimulate the body's natural inflammatory healing processes. An ultrasound gel is applied to the skin and the shockwave therapy is delivered through a handheld probe. The sound waves pass through the skin, to the affected area, increasing the blood circulation and activity in the cells to promote healing. Shockwave therapy can also 'overstimulate' the nerves leading to reduced pain sensation. During shockwave therapy you will hear a tapping noise and feel a little discomfort. Each treatment lasts approximately 10 minutes.
