Focused shockwave indications
In more recent years the use of both modalities on a patient has become the gold standard for many advanced shockwave providers; treating the superficial and shallower structures with radial pressure waves and then targeting the source of the injury with focused shockwaves. Those clinics who are combining radial and focused shockwave are seeing fantastic results.
“I have 2 clinics that use Shockwave, one has focused and radial devices and the other only radial. Despite the clinic with only radial being a multi disciplinary clinic treating elite professional athletes, including premier league footballers and having luxurious surroundings, I feel totally insufficient there because the focused device is at my other clinic. I know I can offer better treatments when having the focused device, it’s just not the same with only radial, I end up advising all the patients to go to the other clinic for better results no matter what part f the body. Focus can treat things that radial can’t and combined the two modalities are even better!”.

“As a combination therapy Focused shockwave with Radial is providing my patients with outstanding results. I already have numerous case studies from using the device after only a few months. I treat a lot of runners and thanks to our excellent success rate with focused, the focus shockwave therapy word has spread through the running community in my area. It’s not only runners I have had great success with, one chap who suffered terribly with back pain is now enjoying his passion of Golf”.
