Radial Shockwave Therapy is a modern and effective non-invasive treatment for a wide range of common tendon problems. M3 Clinic have the ONLY shock wave machine in Northland.

What is it?
Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to the painful tissue, e.g tendons. This energy promotes regeneration and reparation processes to the painful/injured tendon along with your own natural healing processes.
What areas of the body can Shockwave treat?
Shockwave can treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions:

  • Patella Tendonopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Calcific Tendonitis of the Shoulder
  • Tennis and Golfer Elbow
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Trochanteric Bursitis of the hips
What is the success rate?
Shockwave treatment is supported by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence), the Governments Health watchdog, and current research reports success rates between 65 and 91% in reducing patient’s pain and symptoms after a course of 3-5 sessions.
What can I expect?
There is usually some discomfort, but most people can tolerate it during the treatment and there is no need to worry. There are very few adverse effects unlike injections or surgery, making shockwave therapy a very compelling therapeutic modality for the treatment of chronic tendon problems. We advise, after treatment, refrain from intense activities that stress the treated area for the next 48 hours.
