Shockwave Therapy | Maroubra | Eastern Suburbs | Sydney


What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is used for all tendonitis, muscular, ligament and other soft tissue injuries. It involves high pressured acoustic shockwaves that travel through the skin to stimulate pain relief, enhance blood circulation and tissue repair by breaking down scar tissue and adhesions.  The shockwave machine emits short bursts which penetrates tissue and stimulates the cells that are responsible for tissue healing.

Effectiveness of Shockwave Therapy

What should I expect from Shockwave Therapy?

The treatment can penetrate deep without damaging the superficial tissues. The stimulated growth of the new tissue helps to heal the old injury; relieving pain making the tendon or ligament stronger and not as easily injured as before.

Is Shockwave Therapy painful?

Shockwave Therapy feels like a pulsating knocking. You will experience a sensation of mild discomfort while the pulses help to break down scar tissue. The treatment is very tolerable and is only 5 to 10 minutes so most patients can handle the level of discomfort for that time. There are different settings that can be adjusted Local redness will be produced and in some rare cases bruising. These will go away.

There may be some increased soreness in the next 24 hours after the treatment but this is only a healing reaction and should subside by the following day.
