Radial Shockwave Therapy

Radial Shockwave Therapy is an excellent alternative for people with chronic pain who have exhausted all other treatment avenues (e.g. physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, etc.) and is often used as a pre-surgery option. Radial Shockwave Therapy has been scientifically proven to help relieve chronic pain associated with heel spurs, tennis/golfer's elbow, achilles tendonitis, frozen shoulder and many other conditions that cause chronic pain.

What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Shockwave Therapy is the application of a high-energy acoustic pulse transmitted into the tissue of the affected area of the body. Each Radial Shockwave treatment works to increase the metabolic activity around the site of pain or discomfort, stimulating the reabsorption of irritative calcium deposits in tendons and to stimulate the body's natural healing process, thus reducing pain.


Radial Shockwave Therapy typically requires three treatments, one week apart for optimal results. Most patients feel significant improvement of symptoms after only the first treatment. Treatment is carried out by passing over the injured area with the shockwave applicator. Guided by your feedback, the exact positioning of the shockwave applicator is determined for optimum results. The treatments last approximately five minutes and may be slightly uncomfortable, but are well tolerated by everyone.
