Here is Physiotherapy@Woodbridge’s guide to Shockwave Therapy.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which works by delivering impulses of energy or shock waves to an injured area to aid healing by increasing blood flow to the affected tissue. The reduction in pain and improvement in healing that occurs allows symptoms to reduce and for you to become more active.

Shockwave therapy is delivered by a machine which has a probe attached to it and it has different settings and fittings which attach to the probe. This helps to target different body parts with accuracy and also to achieve the depth of the impulses into different parts of the body. Shockwave therapy helps to kick-start your healing response and increase the speed of your recovery – it is stated to improve healing rates by 40%. Shockwave is now a tool used in most professional sports treatment rooms to keep athletes fit.
