What is Focused Shockwave Therapy

Focused Shockwave Therapy involves passing short, intense sound waves into damaged tissues, which increases blood flow, has a pain relieving effect and stimulates the repair and regeneration process. The treatment puts the cells into repair mode and allows your body to restart its own accelerated healing process.

Focused vs Radial Shockwave Therapy

In rehabilitation therapy, shockwaves are channelled to the area to accelerate healing. Focused Shock Wave Therapy can provide more depth penetration for deeper tissue than radial waves, focusing on more localised areas.  Focused waves are made through a cone of crystals, and these cones focus the energy field when an electrical current is applied. The energy causes a pressure wave that can move through the skin without losing power in a concentrated zone. 

The applicator has minimal impact on the skin, limiting the damage to surface skin and underlying soft tissues making it safer and more comfortable.  While radial waves are applied all over a local area, focused shockwave theory treats defined points within the body and can be adapted depending on the required depth.  This accuracy feature makes focused shockwave therapy much better for treating issues affecting tissues deeper within the body such as hips and lower limb conditions.



Examples of areas which may benefit from focused shockwave treatment, alongside an individualised rehabilitation programme, include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
  • Stress Fractures and Non-Unions 
  • Tendon Pathologies (Achilles / Patella / Gluteal / Hamstring / Adductor)
  • Calcific Tendonitis
