How Shockwave Therapy Works

How Does It Work?

During shockwave therapy, a device applies high-energy acoustic waves to the affected area. These waves create microtrauma in the tissues, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. The therapy is thought to increase blood flow to the targeted area, stimulate the formation of new blood vessels, and promote the release of substances that aid in tissue repair.

Shockwave therapy is used to treat a range of conditions, including plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, tennis elbow, calcific tendonitis of the shoulder, and more. It’s often used when other conservative treatments have failed to provide relief. The procedure is typically performed in a clinical setting and is relatively quick, with minimal discomfort and few side effects for most patients.

Young Man Getting Physiotherapy At Clinic

I hurt my shoulder when I slipped on the ice just before Christmas 2022. I expected it would get better quickly, but it didn't - it was very painful to raise my arm beyond the horizontal. Important travel plans took me out of the country just after New Year so it was mid-February before I could seek professional help. I was delighted to be able to see Brian at Releaf Physio (Benton): he examined my shoulder very thoroughly and diagnosed a partial tear of the tendon of the supraspinatus muscle (he explained this to me with some excellent computerised drawings). Over the last 4 months he's seen me 4 more times and given me a series of graded strengthening exercises to do at home, explaining them carefully and providing an app to help guide me through them. On each visit he also massaged my shoulder to help free up its movement. He's always been very encouraging, which has helped me to carry on putting in the effort with the exercises at home. So it's taken a while but normal strength has now returned to my shoulder and I can even reach up to trim my long, high garden hedge with manual shears with hardly any discomfort. Because it's so much better I'm not planning any more appointments but Brian is happy to see me again if necessary. I recommend him strongly, he clearly knows his job very well indeed and has an excellent "bedside manner" to go along with it.

Saw Brian around October 2021 for chronic lower back pain relating to crossfit and tennis. Had back pain for about 4 years + Sleeping was painful, waking up in the morning I could barely bend over to out trousers on without sitting on the edge of the bed for about 2 mins. I am 35 and pretty fit so having all this was annoying and making me not want to do any exercise. Now after monthly physio sessions, a progressive physiotherapy plan that was done almost every single day, I am now pain free, doing crossfit again and playing tennis without much concern. Overall treatment was for 5 months, and i am now just maintaining it to prevent injury. Can’t recommend this guy enough!

Had my initial assessment on Saturday for my shoulder. Brian was friendly and very knowledgeable. My shoulder felt better and I was sent an email with videos of the exercises I need to do at home plus the reassurance I can message him at any time. Definitely going to go back for a review. Brilliant service thank you
