Focused Shockwave Therapy

Focused Shockwave Therapy (FSWT) directs a concentrated beam into the body, providing deep, precise and targeted therapy compared to previous shockwave technologies.

Focused shockwave is generated via an electromagnetic coil, producing a shockwave which has the most intense part of its beam inside the body, covering a small surface area. This enables consistent high-powered energy to specifically target the affected area.

While focused shockwave therapy is typically more expensive than radial shockwave therapy due to its specialised technology, it offers enhanced efficiency and effectiveness for certain conditions. For instance, studies have shown that patients with heel pain required fewer sessions with focused shockwave therapy compared to radial shockwave therapy.

The combination of radial shockwave and focused shockwave therapy has also been highly effective for conditions that require relief for tendinopathies and muscular chains.
