Shockwave Therapy CPD Training
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment solution for soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal conditions, men’s sexual health, dementia and wound healing. The shockwave machine will pass short and intense sound waves through the tissue that is causing problems. The process increases blood flow and activates an acute inflammatory response which enables the healing process to commence.
We have a range of different CPD accredited courses from how to run a successful shockwave therapy service to more specific sessions on how shockwave can help various disorders. Offering more detailed educational events means that you can come along to a session that you feel will provide you with the most value.
How Shockwave Therapy can add value to your clinic
Shockwave therapy technology has become increasingly popular and more people are looking for Shockwave treatment. By the end of the course, you should be able to demonstrate competency in the areas we discuss and be able to apply these within your own organisation.

Shockwave therapy is an investment in your business, but it’s a sound investment. Shockwave therapy is a tested and well-established treatment that reduces pain and improves function.
