Bodyworx Health Clinic are extremely excited to announce that we now offer shockwave therapy. This new technology is designed to improve your function and get you out of pain quickly! We are one of the only clinics in the South of England to have this equipment and we have NHS grade equipment! Find out more below.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

In as little as 3-4 treatments chronic tendon injuries and musculoskeletal injuries can be cured. The treatment works by breaking down scar tissue and old cells and replaces them with new functional cells, blood vessels and nerves. The equipment was originally designed to break down the stones in the kidneys and the gallbladder. The wave length and frequency has now been designed that it can be changeable to work on more superficial areas of the body. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) uses high amplitude pulses of mechanical energy to break up faulty tissue much in the same way as kidney and gallstones are treated.

How does it work?

Shockwave Therapy has a pain relieving effect by releasing pain mediators and growth factors. This process dilates the blood vessels which in turn stimulates blood circulation and formation of new tissue. The inflammation is then reduced and healing can then begin. Effectively this is a non-surgical solution to becoming pain free! 

 

Shockwave is in the clinical guidelines issued by NICE (National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence) which are the standards the NHS follow.
