Shock Wave Therapy – new, proven chronic injury and trigger point therapy
Shock Wave Therapy (SWT) is a new proven treatment for acute pain, chronic pain and trigger points. It uses high intensity sound waves to stimulate’s your body’s healing response. It’s recommended as a non-invasive treatment of last resort before surgery.
Shock wave therapy relieves pain by essentially waking up your body’s natural healing abilities. It acts as a ‘kickstart’, stimulating your metabolism and increasing blood circulation. New blood vessels grow, tissues regenerate, tendons strengthen and function is restored.
If your aches and pains are reoccurring, long standing or have not been fully resolved with traditional methods then Shock Wave Therapy could be the right treatment for you.
