Shockwave Therapy Birmingham


What is it?

Shockwave therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment of injured soft tissues, that stimulates the body’s natural healing process. It can relieve pain and promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues.

How it works?

Shockwave therapy uses high energy sound waves that passes through the body via a handheld device, stimulating increased blood flow and growth hormones to the area, promoting new tissue growth. The main benefits of Shockwave Therapy are pain relief and restoration of function.

Shockwave FAQs

You may experience some discomfort during the treatment; however, the pain should be tolerable. Immediate pain relief may be experienced 24 hours post treatment.

Shockwave therapy is very safe to use and widely used by medical professionals in the NHS and professional sporting bodies.

The amount of treatment session will vary dependant on the type of conditions being treated. 3-6 treatment sessions are advised. These sessions last about 20-30 minute.

In summary, shockwave therapy significantly reduced the pain that accompanies tendinopathies and improves functionality and quality of life. It has been stated that shockwave therapy has a 70% success rate for tendinopathies (Moya et al, 2018, Dedes et al 2018).
