Suffering from a nagging sports injury or chronic pain? At Benchmark Physio, we use advanced shockwave therapy to help patients heal quickly and get back to peak performance. This non-invasive treatment uses targeted sound waves to stimulate your body’s natural healing response.

What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial shockwave therapy, a non-invasive medical treatment, employs high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate healing and reduce pain in musculoskeletal conditions. It’s widely used in orthopaedics, sports medicine, and physiotherapy.

At Benchmark Physio, we use a BTL-6000 SWT EASY handheld device that directs shockwaves to injured or painful areas like joints, tendons or muscles.

Radial shockwave therapy is an excellent alternative rehabilitation choice for patients seeking effective solutions when certain injuries prove unresponsive to initial treatments like rest, ice, or braces. Shockwave therapy stands as a less invasive yet highly beneficial alternative to more invasive therapy options.

How does Radial Shockwave Therapy work?

Acoustic Waves

The acoustic waves penetrate deep into tissue without damaging the skin. This triggers your body's natural healing response. Blood flow increases, new blood vessels form, inflammation is reduced, and new cell growth and tissue regeneration is stimulated. The pulses can also help break up scar tissue and calcium deposits that may be contributing to pain and reduced mobility. This non-surgical treatment option accelerates recovery from injuries, chronic pain, and other musculoskeletal conditions.

Stimulating Healing:

These waves create microtrauma at the cellular level, triggering the body's natural healing response. This includes improved blood flow, increased cell activity, and tissue regeneration.

Pain Reduction

Radial shockwave therapy can also disrupt pain signals in nerves, providing both immediate pain relief and long-term benefits by addressing the underlying condition.
