The shock waves produce a rapid increase in blood circulation to the target area and will break down fibrous scar tissue. Scar tissue is a non-elastic tissue that builds up over time and will limit the movement and functions of the joint, thereby weakening the unaffected tissue surrounding it.

Other than helping to reduce swelling and relieve pain, shock wave therapy is effective for:

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Tennis Elbow

  • Golfer’s Elbow

  • Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

  • Frozen Shoulder

  • Knee Osteoarthritis

Believe it or not, research has shown that shockwave therapy works the same way as us eating red chilli peppers! Bite on a chilli pepper and your mouth will start feeling like it’s on fire, followed by a tingling numbness.

To give you a better idea, in the human body, C nerve fibers will release a specific substance called ‘substance P’ which is responsible for transmitting pain. When shockwave therapy is activated at the very beginning, the C nerve fibers will release substance P, however, after a certain period the nerve fibers will become incapacitated and thus release a lower quantity of substance P which will reduce the overall pain in the area (hence the reference to numbness!). Reduction in substance P can also cause a declination of neurogenic inflammation and lead to faster healing by activating stem cells in the treated tissue.



It is a non-invasive treatment that does not require any surgery. It can be performed without anaesthesia or drugs and best of all there is no downtime once you have received the treatment - you can get straight back to work!

Limited to no side effects

Shock wave therapy is a safe treatment and there are limited to no side effects for patients. Shockwave therapy should not be applied if there is a circulation or nerve disorder, infection, bone tumor, or a metabolic bone condition.

Alternative to dry needling

Shock wave therapy works similar to how dry needling works for the muscles. For those that are afraid of needles or squeamish at the thought of needling - shock wave therapy is a great alternative treatment.
