Shockwave therapy machines pass short, intense energy sound waves, travelling faster than the speed of sound, into affected tissues. This causes microtrauma, increases blood flow and stimulates an acute inflammatory response which aids the healing process.
Shockwave therapy is widely used in physiotherapy, podiatry, sports medicine, urology and orthopaedics to provide fast pain relief and increased mobility. ESWT (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy) is increasingly used as a treatment for health problems such as erectile dysfunction, slow-healing wounds, cellulite and neurological conditions.
Shockwave therapy has both NICE guidance and FDA approval for a large number of indications. If delivered by qualified therapists, the treatment is largely risk and side-effect-free, making it a safe treatment choice for musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain. Shockwave therapy is a highly trusted treatment modality, and is used by hundreds of private clinics and NHS hospitals across the UK.
