Shockwave Therapy 

If you are suffer from chronic pain, injury or discomfort shockwave therapy can help alleviate your symptoms and get you back to feeling your best. Our experienced team of healthcare professionals are here to provide you with the best shockwave therapy treatment in Bordon.

What are shock waves?
Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance. In modern pain therapy, low-energy shock waves are applied to the painful body regions where they can exert their curative action. Shock waves can accelerate the healing process in the body, they stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation; damaged tissue can regenerate and fully heal.

Many years of experience have confirmed that certain pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words the root causes of your pain – can be eliminated systematically with this therapy approach.
If performed by qualified therapists, extra- corporeal shock wave therapy of musculoskeletal pain has minimal risks and side effects.

How is shock wave treatment performed? 

The therapist takes your history in an in-depth consultation, localizes the pain region by palpation and discusses the findings with you.

A skin gel is then applied to the treatment area to allow the shock waves to be introduced into the body without any loss of energy.
After these preparations, shock waves are applied as the therapy head is moved over the pain region in a circular motion.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

During treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver high-energy sound waves to the affected area. These sound waves stimulate the body's natural healing response, increasing blood flow, promoting tissue repair and regeneration, and reducing pain and inflammation.
