Ace Physio is proud to offer the advanced, new technology of Shockwave Therapy using the Storz MP200 Radial Shockwave Therapy Machine. Shockwave Therapy is an extremely effective modality which can be used to shorten the treatment period and increase recovery. Shockwave Therapy is currently the treatment of choice among professional athletes for chronic pain, helping them return to the playing field faster. Ace Physio is now making this advanced technology available to the general public and recreational athletes alike.
Shockwave Therapy sends acoustic pressure waves into bone or soft tissue, in effect re-injuring the area at a cellular level and breaking up the scar tissue that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. This controlled re-injuring of tissue allows the body to regenerate blood vessels, tissues and bone cells. The resulting re-vascularization leads to faster healing, a chemically induced decrease in pain and sensitivity of the pain receptors, and often a return to pre-injury activity levels. Therefore any condition that requires the break up of scarred or fibrosed tissue, will often respond very favourably to Shockwave Therapy.
