Standard (Radial) Shockwave Therapy Thorngate

Adelaide Podiatry Centre offer shockwave therapy to local Thorngate communities.

Radial Shockwave is one of our core components to combat our two most common injuries at the Adelaide Podiatry Centres: namely Heel and Achilles Tendon injuries. It can also be used in the tendons of the ankle, knee and shin pain.

Unlike surgery, it has no recovery time and long term side effects.

Radial Shockwave Therapy Thorngate
Our team has the gold standard in training programs with these machines. We have four of these machines and perform over a hundred shockwave treatments a week which ranks us as the largest user of Shockwave Therapy in the Australia. Each of our podiatrists rank in the top 10 largest users of Shockwave Therapy, so one could say they have a lot of experience with these high technology pieces of equipment.

Previously shockwave therapy was only used as a final resort in conjuction with surgical procedures. However as treatment has become more affordable we are able charge half the cost for those covered by private health insurance and approximately 30% less for those without private health insurance.

Does it Work?

Being the largest user of shockwave in the country we found that the success rate of radial shockwave is around 70-75%. We encourage you the client to be very sceptical of places claiming a 90-95% success rate. As mentioned we are the biggest provider of shockwave in the country and when we speak to other clinics (interstate and overseas) which use shockwave regularly they report a success rate around that 70-75% mark.

Essentially, about one in four don’t work. If that is the case we move to Focal Shockwave, Dry Needling and Cold Laser.

How it Works:

Extracorporal Shockwaves are high energy acoustic waves. In the body the acoustic waves stimulate the cells and the body’s internal healing mechanisms and decrease pain.
