Shock Wave Therapy Benefits

Shockwave Therapy offers a number of significant advantages as a treatment:

  • No hospital admission is required, it is performed as an outpatient (clinic) treatment
  • No anaesthetic is needed
  • It is a non-invasive procedure (no needles and no surgery required)
  • No medications required
  • Treatment sessions last for an average of only 20 minutes (not including the assessment)
  • A temporary pain-relieving effect is felt after treatment followed by a longer-term natural healing of the condition
  • No lengthy rehabilitation, loss of mobility or time away from work
  • Safe procedure with much fewer complications than surgery or injections
  • Excellent clinical results even in cases that have failed to respond to other treatments


“Shockwave therapy offers two main advantages over traditional surgical methods: fewer potential complications and a faster return to normal activity.”
