Gary is excited to introduce Shockwave Therapy to the Osteopathic clinic, a non-invasive, drug-free treatment option.
If you have been suffering from a long-term musculoskeletal injury that is not responding to other treatment, shockwave therapy could be an option.
Localised pain or tenderness in your joints and tendons can be debilitating if it occurs on a regular or long-term basis.
What can Shockwave Therapy be used to treat?
Tendinopathies such as plantar fasciitis and tennis/golfer's elbow
Activation of muscle and connective tissue to combat issues such as poor circulation
What are the benefits of shockwave therapy over other treatments?
Shockwave therapy has a number of benefits including the ability to treat larger areas, the short treatment time for each session and the high likelihood of seeing results after just a few sessions. Shockwave therapy also offers a drug-free treatment alternative for patients looking to avoid medication.
Are there any side effects of shockwave therapy?
In general shockwave therapy has few side effects. Patients have reported reddening of the skin, minor pain or discomfort around the treatment area, swelling or bruising. Most side effects appear after 1-2 days and have receded by 5-10 treatments.
What are Storz Shockwaves and How do they work?
Radial shockwaves are introduced into the body by means of a freely moved applicator and cover the entire pain region. Radial shockwaves are often referred to as radial pressure waves, which is the correct definition in physical terms.
The pathological association between pain and muscle tone and vascular tone is broken as a result of shock wave therapy and the strong stimuli it produces, thus enabling natural movement patterns to be remembered and recalled.
How long are the treatment sessions:
Treatment will be carried out over a 30 minute session which will include Shockwave Therapy and Osteopathic treatment. This way you will benefit from 2 treatments all in one session.
Cost per session:
Includes Osteo Treatment and Shockwave Therapy
