Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy or ESWT is an established and effective treatment for soft-tissue injuries that is clinially proven and recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence)


Shockwave Therapy

3Way Physiotherapy is a Specialist Extracorporeal ShockWave Therapy (ESWT) Centre offering shockwave treatment for Musculoskeletal and Urological conditions.

The technology we use is from the Market Leading Swiss company STORZ MEDICAL. All our ESWT machines are manufactured in Switzerland to stringent European and British standards.

Focused Shockwave

Focused shockwaves are sound waves that are gathered (or focused) into deeper regions of the body, approximately 12cm. It is at this point that they reach their maximum energy. Focused shockwaves are used in the treatment of deep trigger points or areas, whereas radial shockwaves transmit outwards and do not reach as deep into the target area.

Radial Shockwave

Radial shockwaves are performed on greater surface areas of application or larger regions of the body. Your therapist carrying out the procedure will decide which method is best for you, depending on your condition. Sometimes it is advisable to use a combination of both for maximum effect.
