Shockwave Therapy can achieve excellent Pain Relief results for people suffering from persistent and painful conditions. In many instances there will be an immediate reduction in pain, as well as improved mobility and function. Shockwave therapy is non-invasive, non-addictive and there is no need for anaesthesia. Each treatment session takes approximately 5-20 minutes.
