Shockwave Treatment Sydney

If you’re in pain from an injury, whether you’ve had it for weeks or even years, then shockwave treatment can help relieve your pain, repair the damage, and increase the speed of your recovery.

Shockwave is a clinically proven treatment that emits acoustic pressure waves into the specific areas of the body that it is applied. It is these waves that help:

Decrease your pain

Reduce inflammation

Facilitate the body’s healing and repair process in new injuries

Reboot the healing process in longstanding conditions or injuries

Encourage the formation of new blood vessels

Stimulate the regeneration of tendons

Reduce muscle spasticity

Disintegrate tendon calcifications

As podiatrists, we’re in full support of the many health benefits when using shockwave over other treatments, including:

No painful injections that break the skin

No medications that may have undesirable side effects

Non-invasive – does not penetrate the skin

Non-surgical option to reduce the risk of adverse effects

Relatively short treatment time per session – ~30 minutes per session

Stimulates the body’s own processes to improve healing and repair
