Shockwave

Shockwave therapy at Physio Plantagenet Cumberland is a state-of-the-art treatment option that offers relief for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. This innovative therapy uses acoustic waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, promoting faster recovery and improved mobility.

One of the key advantages of shockwave therapy is its ability to target damaged tissues with precision. The therapy is delivered through a hand-held applicator, allowing our therapists to focus the treatment on specific areas of concern. This targeted approach enhances the breakdown of adhesions, scar tissue, and calcifications, which are common issues in many musculoskeletal conditions.

What should I expect from treatment?

During your first visit, your therapist will assess your condition to determine if shockwave therapy is right for you. They will also educate you about your condition and provide guidance on activities, exercises, and other factors that may contribute to your recovery. Treatment typically consists of weekly sessions over 3-6 weeks, depending on your progress.

 

While the treatment itself may cause mild discomfort, lasting only 5-10 minutes, the intensity can be adjusted for your comfort. Some temporary soreness, tenderness, or swelling may occur after the procedure, as the shockwaves stimulate the body’s inflammatory response.

Shockwave therapy has shown to effectively treat the following conditions:

These are just a few examples of the conditions that can be effectively treated with shockwave therapy at Physio Plantagenet Cumberland. Our experienced therapists will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals for recovery. With shockwave therapy, you can experience relief from pain and discomfort, and improve your mobility and quality of life.
