Shockwave Therapy For Acute And Chronic Pain
Shockwave therapy is the non-surgical option to treat chronic pain
The pain refuses to leave. It’s become a part of you. Wherever you go, it travels with you like an unwelcome shadow. You’re sure you need surgery, but you just don’t want to go under the knife.
So you press on with your daily life. You’ve learned what you can live with and what triggers the pain. You try and avoid it where you can, though deep down, you know it’s getting worse.
Sound like you? If it does, then it’s time you explored shockwave therapy at Northern Spinal & Sports Injury Clinic. We use it for chronic, painful and inflammatory conditions that are usually difficult to treat, like tendonitis, heel pain, tennis elbow, shin splints, rotator cuff tears, hamstring strains, Osteitis Pubis, Patella Tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis. It’s fast, effective and medication-free.
The treatment involves holding a probe against the area and releasing high-energy shockwaves of sound, through the skin, at the site of the pain. The controlled and focused way the force penetrates the body, stimulates the cells responsible for healing muscles, connective tissue and bone.
There may be some initial pain and numbness when the treatment first starts, but by the end of each session—they usually only last for 3-5 minutes—you’ll hardly feel it. And in any event, it’s far less painful and invasive than surgery.
Of course, before we offer you shockwave therapy we’ll examine you thoroughly to make sure it is the right treatment for you, just like we do for all our other patients. And if it is suitable, you’ll probably only need 3-5 sessions.
At Northern Spinal & Sports Injury Clinic in Melbourne CBD & Reservoir we combine the use of Shockwave Therapy in conjunction with osteopathic treatment, chiropractic care, physiotherapy and podiatric care to achieve clinically proven relief from persistent pain. It is an effective form of treatment used to stimulate collagen and tissue repair, reduce chronic tendon pain and inflammation, improve blood flow and healing to arthritic joints and ultimately improve mobility for our patients.
