Shockwave Therapy (Radial)- for the treatment of soft tissue and joint pain
Shockwave is a regenerative nonsurgical treatment involving the use of natural substances to stimulate your body's own natural healing mechanisms to repair injured musculoskeletal tissue and painful joint areas.
Showckwave is also known as nonsurgical ligament and tendon reconstruction, or regenerative injection therapy. New tissue is laid down in the previously injured area produces increased stability and strength to the tendon, joint or ligament.
Shockwave is an excellent alternative to steroid injections and surgery and can be used in conjunction with other therapies like insole therapy.
We also offer Ostenil Plus injection - a long acting treatment for osteoarthritis of the knees, ankle joints and big toes. Ostenil Plus is a natural lubricant and shock absorber that blocks pain receptors and already
present in joints. This is reduced in these types of cases so people experience pain.
What conditions can shockwave be used to treat?
All types of short or long term injuries or pain including:
• Plantar Fascitis (Heel pain)
• Achilles, knee, big toe pain
• Morton's neuroma
My own shockwave therapy story:
"After breaking my ankle a couple of times and a few sprains I was suffering with severe ongoing pain and instability in my right ankle, I was booked in for surgery by a musculoskeletal specialist consultant after an ultrasound showed a tear, subluxation of the peroneal and other arthritic changes.
I had previously tried 2 sets of insoles by specialist podiatrists, AposTherapy, osteopaths, chiropractors , physios, many other treatments and my own knowledge; all with no impact.
I had one prolotherapy injection and was 70% better in both pain and stability, with no need for time of work and trauma from surgery."
