What is Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy and sports medicine.
Acoustic waves with high energy peak used in Shockwave therapy interact with tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain.

How many treatments are necessary?

The number of treatments necessary depends on the type of injury or condition being treated, and the tissue's response to the treatment. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy treatment has a cumulative effect, so most people need more than one treatment, and can expect to notice a change or relief after 2-4 treatment sessions.

What can I expect during my Shockwave appointment?

Your first appointment for Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy at StepUp will start with a detailed assessment, during which your healthcare practitioner will determine if Shockwave is an appropriate treatment choice for your condition.

If Shockwave is right for you, the next steps is the actual application of Shockwave treatment, which lasts only a few minutes. You may experience mild discomfort during treatment, and your practitioner can adjust the intensity of the treatment depending on your level of comfort, ramping it up more gradually to minimize discomfort. After the treatment is complete, the remainder of your appointment will be spent with your physiotherapist, who may also use a combination of manual therapy and exercise to treat your problem. Massage therapy and/or orthotics may be recommended.

Since Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is provided by one of our healthcare practicioners, it is covered by most extended health insurance plans.
