Shockwave therapy is a safe, non-invasive physiotherapy modality that promotes natural tissue healing for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions that may be difficult to heal with other treatment methods. Shockwave therapy can help when problems continue to persist despite treatment.
What are the benefits of shockwave therapy?
Shockwave therapy triggers the body’s natural healing response, which helps it to heal injured tissue, rather than just relieve painful symptoms. Shockwave therapy can also provide the following benefits:
- Reduced muscle tightness
- Increased range of motion
- Improved lymphatic and blood circulation
- Pain reduction
- Release of painful trigger points
- Regeneration of cells
Shockwave therapy can also be done without any need for surgery, medication or steroid injections. This means that there is a shorter recovery time and much less potential side effects. When you get shockwave therapy in Sydney, you can return to your regular daily activities as soon as your treatment session has ended.
