Looking for Shockwave Therapy in the Mid Coast?
Shockwave is relatively new to Australia but has been around for many years, in Europe and America. It is used extensively in soccer, tennis and athletics for both treatment of injuries and in some cases for warming up the team. The radial shockwaves work at increasing blood flow to the affected site, improving tissue healing and providing pain relief.
To ensure we are providing the best service, we invested in the top of the range Swiss Dolorclast ‘Smart 20’ extracorporeal shockwave therapy machine and use it in conjunction with other treatment options.
What can you use it for?
heel pain/plantar fasciitis, especially heel pain that’s been present for a long time

knee pain (patellar tendinosis)

it’s great for reducing symptoms before a big event
