Accelerate Healing with Shockwave Therapy - EVIDENCE BASED

We are the only centre in Australia offering the 
complete range of treatment heads:
Focused, planar, vibration & radial Shockwave Therapy 

Shockwave Therapy (SWT) is a fast and effective non-invasive method of eliminating or reducing many painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. It uses an electro-magnetic generator to physically deliver the shockwave through the skin, into the body.

The high-energy acoustic waves that are transmitted through the surface of the skin focused or are spread radially (spherically) into the body and the body responds with increased metabolic activity around the area of the pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process.

SWT has been shown to have a 80 to 90% success rate if all underlying issues are addressed as well. Shockwave Therapy will be applied as part of your Physiotherapy Treatment by our fully qualified and registered Physiotherapists.

 

What are the benefits of SWT?

  • Patients can be treated on both sides at the same time, if the condition requires.

  • Non invasive

  • Non addictive

  • Fast, safe and effective

  • Decreased pain and increased function

  • No incision; no risk for infection at the treatment site, no scarring

  • Future treatment options are not limited

 

 

 

 

Tennis Elbow is a common term for a condition caused by overuse of arm, forearm, and hand muscles that results in elbow pain. You don't have to play tennis to get this, but the term came into use because it can be a significant problem for some tennis players. Tennis elbow is caused by either abrupt or subtle injury of the muscle and tendon area around the outside of the elbow. Tennis elbow specifically involves the area where the muscles and tendons of the forearm attach to the outside bony area (called the lateral epicondyle) of the elbow. Golfer's Elbow (medial epicondylitis) causes pain and inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm to the elbow. The pain centers on the bony bump on the inside of your elbow and may radiate into the forearm. It can usually be treated effectively with rest. Golfer's elbow is usually caused by overusing the muscles in the forearm that allow you to grip, rotate your arm, and flex your wrist. Repetitive flexing, gripping, or swinging can cause pulls or tiny tears in the tendons.

Conditions treated with Shockwave Therapy

Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk.

Plantar fasciitis is common in middle-aged people. It also occurs in younger people who are on their feet a lot, like athletes or soldiers. 

Jumper's Knee or Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) describes an insertional tendinopathy. That's a tendon injury or inflammation seen in athletes with mature skeletons at the point where the tendon attaches to bone. Jumper's knee usually involves the attachment of the kneecap tendon to the lower kneecap pole. The term also applies to injury or inflammation where the thigh muscles tendon attach to the upper kneecap pole or where the kneecap tendon attaches to the lower leg bone. Jumper's knee refers to functional stress overload due to jumping. Jumper's knee is believed to be caused by repetitive stress placed on the patellar or quadriceps tendon during jumping. It is an injury specific to athletes, particularly those participating in jumping sports such as basketball, volleyball, or high or long jumping. Jumper's knee is occasionally found in soccer players, and in rare cases, it may be seen in athletes in non-jumping sports such as weight lifting and cycling. 

Shin Splints: This is a complex syndrome characterised by exercise-induced pain in the lower leg. However, the term is not diagnostically precise and can be open to misinterpretation.
Medial tibial pain can be caused by stress fractures, periostitis, tendonitis (tibialis posterior) and compartment syndrome (rarely). Interosseous membrane tears and fascial hernias are extremely rare causes. Lateral shin splints are caused by anterior compartment syndrome.

Neck and back pain is a common problem, with two-thirds of the population having neck or back pain at some point in their lives. Neck and back pain, although felt in the neck or lower back, can be caused by numerous other spinal problems. Neck or back pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and lower back. Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)s a syndrome characterized by chronic pain caused by multiple trigger points and fascial constrictions. In myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles (trigger points) causes pain in seemingly unrelated parts of your body. This is called referred pain. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs or hobbies or by stress-related muscle tension.

 

Calcific tendinitis of the shoulder is a process involving crystal calcium deposition in the rotator cuff tendons, which mainly affects patients between 30 and 50 years of age. The etiology is still a matter of dispute. The diagnosis is made by history and physical examination with specific attention to radiologic and sonographic evidence of calcific deposits. Patients usually describe specific radiation of the pain to the lateral proximal forearm, with tenderness even at rest and during the night.

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome is a condition that causes pain over the outside of your upper thigh (or thighs). The cause is usually due to inflammation or injury to some of the tissues that lie over the bony prominence (the greater trochanter) at the top of the thigh bone (femur). Tissues that lie over the greater trochanter include muscles, tendons, fascia (strong fibrous tissue), and bursae

Heel Spur is a calcium deposit causing a bony protrusion on the underside of the heel bone. On an X-ray, a heel spur can extend forward by as much as a half-inch. Without visible X-ray evidence, the condition is sometimes known as "heel spur syndrome." Although heel spurs are often painless, they can cause heel pain. They are frequently associated with plantar fasciitis, a painful inflammation of the fibrous band of connective tissue (plantar fascia) that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the ball of the foot.

Achilles Tendinopathy is a condition that causes pain, swelling, stiffness and weakness of the Achilles tendon that joins your heel bone to your calf muscles. It is thought to be caused by repeated tiny injuries to the Achilles tendon. These may occur for a number of reasons, including overuse of the tendon - for example, in runners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie's Desease Erectile dysfunction (or impotence) is a man’s inability to get or keep an erection that allows sexual activity with penetration. Peyronie’s disease causes abnormal, fibrous lumps (plaques) to form inside the erectile tissue of the penis. Over time, these plaques can grow and deform the erect penis and cause it to curve.
