This highly effective treatment has been transforming the lives of countless individuals suffering from musculoskeletal conditions such as and sports injuries. Join us as we delve into the wonders of Shockwave Therapy and how it can be your path to a swift recovery and lasting pain relief.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is a state-of-the-art treatment that employs high-energy shockwaves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. These shockwaves are precisely targeted to the affected area, promoting cell regeneration, improved blood circulation, and the reduction of inflammation. This therapy is completely drug-free, non-surgical, and offers a safe alternative for patients seeking pain relief without invasive procedures.

There are two types of shockwave therapy, radial and focused. 

Radial Shockwave Therapy.

Treatment depth – 3-4cm

Spreads to treat larger areas

Slow impulse with a low energy density. 

Focused Shockwave Therapy 

Treatment depth up to 12cm

Small focal point 

Fast Impulse with a high energy density. 

Each device is used for a different purpose. You will benefit from both as they both promote an increase in cell wall permeability, help your microcirculation and allow for vasodilation alongside pain modulation. Focused shockwave is better for smaller areas & deeper injuries. It also causes a little less discomfort to its counterpart due to it being deep-reaching and the stimulation of growth factors. Whereas radial shockwave has a wider reach in terms of the area it treats, making it great for muscular injuries. Due to the focused shockwave having a higher energy density, it is more expensive to obtain and undertake.

It is important to understand that shockwave isn’t a one session fix for these issues. Studies recommended anywhere between 3-6 sessions focusing on a specific treatment area. This is because shockwave relies on a cumulative effect. 

There are also a few considerations when undertaking shockwave therapy, although a GHG professional will highlight these to you prior to your appointment. 

These “contraindications” include: corticosteroid injections up to 6 weeks prior to treatment and active cancer within the treatment.
