Shockwave therapy is a controlled wave of mechanical energy to improve patient’s musculoskeletal mobility and for the provision of drug-free pain relief.
Shockwave Therapy from Pro Point Physio
It is a safe, non-invasive and fast non-surgical method for treating superficial orthopaedic conditions. The EMS Primo Radial Shockwave unit provides that energy through an electromechanical process as opposed to compressed mechanical energy, thereby providing a more comfortable patient experience.
This therapeutic intervention can reverse injury to the damaged tissue cells within the tendon and promote the development of healthy tissue. 4 out of 5 patients treated with shockwave see significant improvements with 3 to 6 sessions of shockwave. The treatment is recommended by the National Institute for Care Excellence (NICE).
