Do you have chronic foot pain?

Are you looking for simple and effective treatment?

Shockwave Therapy is the solution for you

Shockwave Therapy provides efficient treatment and faster results for chronic conditions. Each five to 10-minute session is a step closer to pain-free living.

It is the ideal treatment method for numerous troublesome and complex musculoskeletal conditions. 

At The Foot Hub®, our Gymna ShockMaster300 can treat a wide range of foot conditions, providing maximum results in minimum time. Shockwave is a healthy way to reduce pain, regenerate affected tissue, and treat calcification and fibrosis breakdown.

Read on to find out more about how Shockwave therapy can change your quality of life and work as a realistic alternative to surgery. It offers you an effective solution against persistent pain.

How does Shockwave work?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive approach to treating chronic and complex musculoskeletal conditions. Acoustic waves generated by the Shockwave trigger biological effects, leading to faster, long-term healing and tissue regeneration. 

A rapidly moving projectile transfers its energy to the treatment head, causing radial shockwaves to be generated. They then spread out and are absorbed by the area of the body that requires treatment.

Medical effects

Shockwave Therapy is a modern and precise method of treatment. The healing process is accelerated by stimulating the body’s self-healing properties, which improve metabolism and blood circulation. Damaged tissue recovers and heals itself. This will cause pain to significantly reduce, resulting in improved mobility. 

Regeneration of affected tissue
Improved blood flow
Breakdown of calcifications and fibrosis
Release of trigger points
Pain reduction
Reverses chronic inflammation

Treatment protocol for Shockwave

Radial Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment. 

Each treatment session lasts between five to 10 minutes, depending on the condition to be treated. In general, six to eight treatment sessions will be needed at intervals of one week.  

The application is simple, and treatment happens in four easy steps:

 

Your podiatrist will determine the primary location of the issue by searching for pain points. This will be marked with a skin marker to ensure the handpiece is applied to the correct area.

Gel is applied to the treatment area. This will help improve contact between the skin and the handpiece to allow the shockwaves to penetrate the body and improve its effectiveness properly.

The handpiece is placed on the treatment area and turned on. Radial shockwaves are released into the affected tissue.

Once your Shockwave session is complete, your podiatrist will apply the D-ACTOR for muscle loosening treatment. This helps treat muscle tension, improve blood circulation, and relax trigger points in deep-seated muscles.

faq

Yes, Radial Shockwave Therapy is completely safe. Our Gymna ShockMaster 300 machine is approved for use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia. 

Depending on the condition, sensitivity, and the current level of inflammation, Shockwave can be painful. But don’t worry, a skilled podiatrist will work closely with you to mitigate pain by varying the dosage of shocks

Yes, Shockwave Therapy is effective and is a well-established treatment. There are numerous research articles and publications on the efficacy of shock treatment for pain. In the last few years, Shockwave Therapy has increased its scope of treatment. 

At The Foot Hub, we have a Gymna Shockmaster 300 Radial Shockwave Machine. 

Following Shockwave Therapy, the use of D-actor loosens muscle tension. This usually reduces any discomfort patients may feel after treatment.

Following Shockwave Therapy, the use of D-actor loosens muscle tension. This usually reduces any discomfort patients may feel after treatment.

Following the first session of Shockwave, it is recommended that patients avoid sport and exercise for approximately two to three days. Depending on the outcome of the initial treatment, future sessions may have less downtime.
