Radial extra corporeal shockwave therapy (RSWT) is an intense form of localized physical therapy in which an injured site such as your heel, is bombarded with a series of acoustic waves to stimulate a strong response in your body to heal an injured area.
Put simply, the resultant stimulation of blood circulation and the formation of new blood vessels results in improved metabolism. This in turn accelerates the healing process by activating cell generation and helping to dissolve calcium deposits. An additional benefit of shockwave therapy is the sustained analgesic effect to the injured site which will make you feel more comfortable.
Studies have shown shockwave therapy to be effective in the treatment of many parts of the body. In particular SWT has been shown to help in the recovery of many of the painful conditions that can afflict your feet.
We provide radial shockwave therapy at both of our rooms at Geelong and Ocean Grove. This therapy has been proven to be an effective treatment for damaged soft tissue and the strengthening of bone. If you suffer from arch pain, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, heel spur syndrome, plantar plate tears, tibialis anterior and posterior enthesopathy, tendo achilles tendinosis you should contact us to make an appointment because our shockwave therapy can help you. Our practitioners will assess your condition and if appropriate, recommend a course of shockwave therapy to treat your problem. The average number of treatments required is 4 over the course of 4 weeks.
