Common conditions treated by Shockwave Therapy

Consult with our physiotherapists to determine if shockwave therapy is right for you.

Shockwave therapy can be mildly uncomfortable, but most patients tolerate it well. During a session, a healthcare provider will apply a gel to the treatment area and then administer shockwaves using a specialised device. Sessions typically last about 15-20 minutes.

The number of sessions required varies depending on the condition being treated and the individual’s response to therapy. In many cases, patients undergo 3-5 sessions, with noticeable improvements after the first few sessions.

Contraindications for shockwave therapy include pregnancy, osteoporosis, blood thinners, clotting conditions, open wounds at the site, and the presence of implants near the treatment area. It’s important to discuss your medical history with a healthcare provider before undergoing therapy.

Side effects are uncommon and generally mild and may include redness, bruising, or temporary discomfort.
