Pain Management

Shockwave Therapy

Patients can now locally access the treatment that has been used by the best practitioners and centres in Melbourne for the treatment of painful chronic tendonopathy including gluteal tendonitis, patellar tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, golfers elbow, tennis elbow, rotator cuff and achilles tendonopathy.

This treatment has been used by all the AFL clubs and 10 of the premiership winners since 1999 have the technology! It was used in the official IOC clinic at the last three Olympic Games.

Ten randomised controlled studies have confirmed extra corporeal radial shock wave therapy as a successful treatment modality for a wide range of chronic and painful conditions.

Shockwave therapy can potentially bridge the gap for chronic pain between standard treatment which is no longer working and surgery which can have its limitations. The effect of chronic pain on quality of life is well understood. This approach offers a persuasive alternative.
