Common Conditions We Treat:
Shockwave for Muscles
Muscular tightness and increased muscle tone can hinder rehabilitation. Shockwave can release trigger points and restore normal muscular tone expediting recovery
Shockwave for Tendons
Shockwave increases activity on a cellular level and dissolves calcific changes. This being beneficial for healing and improved function.
Frequently Asked Questions:

What are calcific changes?

The body tends to deposit calcium in areas of injury or tension. This stiffens tissues and is detrimental to recovery.

How is shockwave therapy performed?

Shockwave therapy requires the use of a handheld shock transmitter. The transmitter is held to the skin over the problem structure. It is set to levels of intensity specific to your injury and tolerance. It’s important to note that shockwave does NOT deliver an electrical shock or impulse, but rather a kinetic/sound impulse. Usually four sessions of shockwave are required to assist resolution of an injury.

Do I need a referral?

No. Seeing our podiatrists does not require a specific referral. However, on occasion you may be referred under a Chronic Disease Management plan (EPC) which you will need to provide at the time of consultation. Referral from your doctor or specialist is also needed to allow us to fully understand your needs. It is important to understand that your EPC will not cover all of your consultation costs.

How do I pay for my consultation?

Payment is required at the completion of your consultation. We provide both hicaps for your private health fund needs, and we have eftpos facilities to enable this.

I have NDIS funding, can I still make an appointment?

Yes, we have many NDIS patients of various ages and complaints, however you will need to pay for all treatments at the time of consultation and then claim back through NDIS or your plan manager as we are no longer a registered NDIS provider.
