Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy for Clients with Pain Issues in London

Shockwave therapy can be beneficial in treating several conditions with up to a 95% effectiveness rate. Some conditions include:

Plantar fasciitis/heel spurs
Achilles tendon problems
Tennis/golfer’s elbow
Jumper’s knee
Rotator cuff tendonitis
Scar tissue
Calcific tendonitis

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses very short and intense energy waves that travel faster than the speed of sound. At Gdanski & Tallon Chiropractic Centre in London, you can seek this therapy to accelerate the recovery and healing of bone, heel, joint and soft tissue injuries. 

Shockwave sessions are short, lasting only 10-20 minutes. Permanent relief typically begins 72 hours after the initial treatment. Get in touch to understand more about shockwave therapy and how it can benefit your condition.

Physical Effects of Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy works by stimulating the body's natural healing processes. The intense energy waves delivered during the treatment trigger increased blood circulation, cell regeneration, and the release of growth factors. This helps to repair damaged tissues, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain. Additionally, shockwave therapy can break down calcifications and scar tissue, further aiding in the healing process.

How Many Therapies Do You Need?

The number of shockwave therapy sessions required can vary depending on the specific condition being treated and the individual's response to the treatment. A series of sessions is often recommended to achieve optimal results. Our experienced practitioners will assess your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. They will also guide you on the recommended frequency and duration of the therapy sessions. In addition to shockwave therapy, we also provide chiropractic services for pain relief in London.

What Does the Procedure Include?

During a shockwave therapy session, you will be comfortably positioned, and the therapist will apply a handheld device to the targeted area. The procedure involves the following steps:

Comfortable positioning: You will be positioned in a comfortable manner to ensure ease during the treatment. The therapist will ensure you are in a suitable position that allows access to the targeted area for treatment.

Application of handheld device: The therapist will use a handheld device that emits controlled shockwaves. This device is precisely applied to the specific area requiring treatment, such as the affected muscles, tendons, or joints. The shockwaves are delivered in a controlled manner to penetrate the tissues effectively.

Therapeutic effect: The shockwaves generated by the device stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. They promote blood circulation, stimulate cell regeneration, and trigger the release of growth factors. These effects contribute to the repair of damaged tissues, reduction of inflammation, and alleviation of pain. The therapy aims to initiate and accelerate the healing process in the targeted area.

Sensations during the procedure: It is common to experience mild discomfort or a tingling sensation during the shockwave therapy procedure. However, the discomfort is usually tolerable and temporary. The therapist will ensure your comfort throughout the session and can adjust the intensity of the shockwaves if necessary.

No downtime: After the shockwave therapy session, you can typically resume your daily activities immediately. Unlike surgical or invasive procedures, shockwave therapy does not require extensive recovery time or downtime. You can continue with your regular routines without significant interruption.

It's important to note that the specific details of the procedure may vary depending on the individual's condition and the professional administering the therapy. The therapist at Gdanski & Tallon Chiropractic Centre will provide you with personalized guidance and address any concerns you may have before, during, and after the session.
