Non-Surgical Solutions to Persistent Problems
Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive technology that delivers sound waves to affected areas of the body to stimulate a healing process. Shockwave therapy has become widely accepted in clinical practice for the treatment of chronic soft tissue injuries.
Whether your injury, pain or chronic condition has been caused by wear and tear of daily activities, exercise, pregnancy, ageing or accidents, musculoskeletal disorders and soft tissue injuries can be debilitating. At Morley Chiropractic Clinic we take a low-impact non-surgical route which allows for speedy recovery.
Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven, recognised by top orthopaedic hospitals and used by high profile professional sports bodies.
What are Shockwaves?
Shock waves are high energy, audible sound waves which are transmitted to the affected area to stimulate healing by increasing blood flow, putting cells into recovery mode. Shockwave has pain relieving effect and stimulates repair and regeneration.
Is Shockwave Therapy Safe?
Yes! It has NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines for a large number of conditions as an effective treatment modality. Shockwave therapy performed by qualified therapists is a largely risk-free and side-effect free method of treating musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain.
Is Shockwave Therapy Painful?
A patient may experience mild discomfort to begin with. However the treatment is delivered, with a low amount of energy first, gradually increasing the strength as the patient gets used to it. Shockwave Therapy creates an analgesic effect and many patients report relief following a treatment.
