What is Extracorporeal
Shock Wave Therapy ?
Also known as sound wave therapy, extracorporeal shock wave therapy is the clinical use of sound waves to treat injuries. We use Radial Sound Wave Therapy (aka ECSWT) to treat a variety of soft tissue, muscle and tendon problems from our clinic in Ferntree Gully. We are also able to treat some joint and bone issues. We use technology that is both FDA and TGA approved and clinically confirmed through dozens of double blind trials. Our treatments can induce pain relief during the treatment (by localised modification of pain mediating peptides) and progressive healing of injuries over successive treatments (by induction of increased blood flow and metabolic activity around the site of pain).
After a simple examination, the area of maximum pain is identified , and a small amount of sound conducting gel is applied. An applicator is then held against the skin as shockwave treatment begins. The initial phase may cause some deep pain, however this decreases as the treatment progresses, and also indicates that there has been correct targeting of the problem area. There may then be a sensation of numbness or heaviness.

How does Shock Wave Therapy work ?
Radial Shock Wave Therapy has been demonstrated as a safe treatment option. (Our equipment is TGA and FDA approved).
It encompasses high-energy sound waves being transmitted from a probe as it is held against the skin. The sound waves then spread outwards into the underlying tissues. There are 2 main therapeutic effects: (1) Immediate and progressive reduction of pain at the injured area and (2) Induction of increased blood flow and metabolic activity around the site of pain, thereby, accelerating the healing process (over successive treatments). Thus best results are obtained over a series of treatments (3 to 5)
