Shockwave Therapy in Melbourne – Perfectly Positioned for Kew and Oakleigh

 

When it comes to non-surgical intervention, this form of treatment is a non-intrusive option and often used in sports medicine and by podiatrists. It is a promising form of treatment that delivers high-intensity waves and is generally used for people that have chronic pathologies that are difficult to resolve.

 

This treatment has been developed to remove the need for surgery for some conditions. Healing is stimulated by this approach and will have you active and pain-free when combined with other forms of treatment such as exercises. This may also include the need to use splints, strapping, orthotics or specialised footwear.

 

Our team of award-winning staff are highly trained and well experienced in shockwave therapy, Clinical Pilates and more. All of our staff are confident in the use of our specialised machines and applicators. Our patients find that there's a high success rate, with relief experienced most often immediately and is beneficial for long-term healing.

 

How Shockwave Therapy Works

 

Physiotherapists and podiatrists are using shockwave therapy in Melbourne to deliver high-frequency waves to the injured area to promote healing and the alleviation of pain. There is no penetration to the body and the waves are non-invasively and safely delivered through the skin. It only takes a few minutes to administer without adverse side-effects.

 

This approach has been reliable in stimulating healing in chronic injuries that haven't responded as well to other forms of treatment. This technique was first used in the treatment of kidney stones, then became known as successfully treating musculoskeletal conditions.
