Focused Shock Wave Therapy

As E3 Physio aims to get you the best outcomes, as quickly as possible, we couldn’t ignore Focussed Shockwave Therapy as an additional tool to assist your recovery from common knee, foot and ankle injuries. Focussed shockwave therapy has been proven to reduce pain and inflammation, as well as accelerate tissue healing. Basically, it can help speed up your recovery so you can get back to what you love quicker and more effectively. While Focussed Shockwave has some great advantages in aiding pain and healing, it is not a standalone treatment and should only be done as one aspect of a comprehensive treatment plan. It is also not ideal for everyone or every condition, so book a consultation today to see if it can help you get better sooner!
