Focussed (Focal) Shockwave Therapy
Focal Shockwave is the most advanced machine to combat our two most common injuries at the Adelaide Podiatry Centres: namely heel and Achilles injuries. It can also be used in the tendons of the ankle and patella (knee cap).
It is the one of only a handful of machines in the country and is the only one in Adelaide and the state of South Australia.
We use this machine if your pain fails to respond after the more common Radial Shockwave Therapy.

The main difference the more common radial shockwave and the focal shockwave is the sound waves are delivered in a more pinpoint, deeper manner. So they can penetrate deeper.
How it Works:
Focus Extracorporal Shockwaves are high energy acoustic waves. In Focused Shockwave Therapy, this wave is focused through a lens and transmits into the body up to a depth of 12mm.
In the body the acoustic waves stimulate the cells and the body’s internal healing mechanisms and decrease pain.
