Radial ShockWave Therapy (R-SWT) is a modern and effective method of treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. Radial shockwave therapy will normally give a good outcome of treatment after 3-8 sessions. Scar tissue and calcification in tendons, ligaments and muscles is broken down. Metabolism and circulation is increased, stimulating the healing properties of the body. Damaged tissue recovers and heals itself. This will cause the pain to decrease and mobility to improve. Average success rate of treatment with shockwave is 80%. Normal amount of treatment is between 3-8 sessions.
The therapist determines the location of the pain by searching for painful trigger points. These points can also be localised using the hand piece or ultrasound. Gel is then applied to the treatment zone. This improves the contact between the skin and the hand piece to allow the shockwaves to penetrate the body properly. The hand piece is placed on the pain zone and it then emits shockwaves. In general, this is painless but sometimes perceived as ‘unpleasant’. In a number of cases, the therapist will use a different treatment head, the D-Actor. This combination of shockwaves and vibrations is also used for muscular disorders.
For certain conditions, it is estimated that a single shockwave session is more effective for chronic pain than 6 sessions of deep massage.

Bio-mechanical sports screening of individuals. We use a variety of functional movements & performance tests to identify limitations or asymmetries in individuals with no current pain or with known musculoskeletal problems. By placing the individual in extreme positions, weaknesses and imbalances become observable and can help point the way to appropriate personalised exercise programs to improve performance in sport and help towards resolving persistent injuries.
