SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Shockwave Therapy is one of the most effective treatments for musculoskeletal injuries and here at Exeter Health Plus we have the latest in medical grade Shockwave Therapy equipment. Maximum results in a minimum of time. Shockwave is the ideal treatment method for chronic and complex musculoskeletal conditions. Treatment results in pain reduction, regeneration of affected tissue and breakdown of calcification and fibrosis.

Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. 

Often clinics will offer Shockwave Therapy as a separate treatment at a higher cost performed outside of your manual therapy appointment. At Exeter Health Plus we believe all patients should have access to its benefits and if we feel it will enhance your treatment plan, we'll include it within your normal session and at no extra cost

 

Acoustic waves with high energy peak used in Shockwave therapy interact with tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration.
