Shockwave Therapy Singapore
Shockwave therapy is a highly effective non-surgical treatment that works by delivering mechanical vibrations to target specific damaged tissues. This increases the blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing. It can also reduce pain by decreasing local chemical which cause pain.
Historically, the shockwave method was used to disintegrate kidney stones in a patient. These days it is redeveloped for use in sports medicine to treat chronic recalcitrant conditions. The reported rate of clinical success is about 80% worldwide. Each treatment is cumulative and patients report improvement within three to five sessions.

Shockwave Physio Session
At BMJ Physiotherapy, our physiotherapists who are experienced in shockwave therapy uses the latest technology to ensure that our patients recover quickly and are given the best care to help them in their recovery and to provide them with pain relief.
During the treatment session, a probe is use to deliver shockwaves through the skin. The impulses spread inside the injured tissue as an ‘radial’ wave. These radial shockwaves initiate an inflammation-like response in the injured tissue and prompts the body to respond naturally by increasing blood circulation to kick start the healing mechanisms. The shockwaves are felt as pulses which may be uncomfortable but not painful.
Shock-wave therapy treatments are recommend at weekly intervals. Each treatment session takes about 20 minutes and most patients require 3 to 5 treatment sessions. The treatments are done 3-10 days apart, depending upon the patient’s tolerance and their tissue response.
Radial Shockwave Treatment
Radial Shockwave Therapy is recommended for the treatment of localized musculoskeletal pathology such as a variety of chronic tendinopathies, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff disorders, trigger points.
