What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a holistic solution for musculoskeletal pain therapy that uses acoustic pulses to treat specific musculoskeletal disorders. It is a well-studied and commonly used treatment for various musculoskeletal conditions and indications. Shockwave therapy is used for diagnosed conditions in muscles, tendons and joints such as plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis, frozen shoulder, shin splints, muscular pain and much more. You don't need a referral, but we do suggest you contact us before making a booking if you are unsure whether or not it is a suitable treatment choice for your complaint.

How does radial Shockwave Therapy Work?

Shockwave therapy sends high-energy acoustic waves to injured tissues, promoting pain relief and tissue repair. It stimulates new blood vessel growth, activates growth factors, increases cell proliferation, reduces inflammation, and mobilises stem cells.

Radial shockwave therapy for the treatment of pain works by overwhelming pain-transmitting nerve fibres and disables them, similar to the numbing sensation experienced after consuming capsaicin in spicy food. With prolonged activation of these nerve fibres and local tissues, shockwave therapy is able to reduce pain and inflammation. This decline in inflammation promotes healing, releases growth factors, and activates stem cells in the treated tissue.

Not all Shock Waves are equal

Although many different devices are used in clinics across New Zealand, EMS DolorClast® Radial Shock Wave machines have significantly higher energy outputs than other units and consistently deliver high energy at every frequency. The amount of energy administered to the tissues being treated is a key component of shockwave therapy treatment therefore using a unit that doesn't compromise on energy output is extremely important for patient outcomes.

Is Shockwave Therapy painful?

Shockwave therapy is an effective method for addressing pain from conditions like tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and knee osteoarthritis. However, it can be uncomfortable particularly in sensitive areas, even after the treatment. This is completely normal, and the majority of patients tolerate shockwave therapy exceptionally well. Discomfort can arise due to the micro-traumas caused in the treated tissues; the increased blood flow can leave the tissues feeling warm and sore, but this is all part of the healing process. Most patients experience decreased pain during the treatment as the shock waves help downregulate pain.

Enhance Osteopathy and Physiotherapy Treatment with Shockwave Therapy

Radial shockwave therapy, employs a series of high-energy acoustic waves that penetrate the body in a non-invasive manner. These waves stimulate metabolism and enhance blood circulation, which are crucial in the healing process of musculoskeletal tissues. The energy released by these acoustic waves is absorbed by the body's tissues, leading to biological effects that promote repair and regeneration. A powerful tool in isolation, and even more powerful when used in conjunction with Osteopathy and physiotherapy.
