What is Shockwave Therapy?

Soundwaves, referred to as Shockwaves, are non-invasive and used under a controlled setting to enable the body’s natural healing process for chronic conditions. It is highly effective with several patients experiencing pain relief in just 1-3 sessions.
 
SWT helps to decrease pain, accelerate healing and increase mobility. It is usually used when conservative techniques don’t work for the patient.
 
It is a preferred treatment modality for long-standing tendinopathies including, but not limited to, tennis elbow, golfers’ elbow, Achilles tendinopathy, and chronic plantar fasciitis.
 

What to expect from your Revere Physiotherapy experience?

During your visit, your physiotherapist will use their clinical reasoning skills to identify the necessary muscles to shockwave.  What you should expect through the process:

  • Skin around the target joints will need to be exposed. 
  • The machine provides short pulsations that feel like a moderate amount of tapping.
  • Each spot is focused on for about 5 minutes.
  • Most patients don’t report any soreness after treatment.
