What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is an innovative and advanced treatment designed to address chronic tendon issues such as Achilles tendinopathy and calcific shoulder tendonitis quickly and effectively.

This therapy leverages technology inspired by lithotripsy, a long-established method for treating kidney stones. Shockwave Therapy uses mechanical pressure pulses, directed at the affected area through a specialised applicator. These shockwaves break down scar tissue and calcifications that the body cannot repair on its own in chronic conditions. As the damaged tissue is broken down, the body initiates the generation of new, healthy tissue, leading to improved healing, enhanced function, and pain relief.

Most conditions resolve within 3-5 sessions, delivered once a week. While most research supports 3 sessions, some of the most chronic conditions may require up to 5. We offer a package for the initial 3 sessions, but they can also be purchased individually.


Is Shockwave Therapy Covered by Private Health Insurance?


Yes, most private health insurance companies cover the cost of shockwave therapy. However, it is advised to contact your insurer prior to booking a consultation to confirm coverage.


We prefer to use shockwave therapy as part of a comprehensive approach to recovery. However, if you are receiving treatment elsewhere that does not offer shockwave therapy, we are happy to see you here and can easily communicate with any other professionals you are working with.
