Shockwave Therapy Exeter


What is Shockwave Therapy?

A Fast, Non-invasive, Treatment That’ll Get You Back On Your Feet.

At Barefoot, we provide affordable shockwave treatments that improve your recovery speed from debilitating injuries. We apply a device to the affected area that produces shockwave pulses to penetrate to the injured tissue. These waves stimulate an inflammatory healing response that improves metabolic activity of the cells , thus accelerating up the recovery process.
Not only is it non-invasive, but it’s also a non-surgical treatment that doesn’t need supplementary medication. Shockwave is never provided in isolation. We always combine shockwave treatment with a course of physiotherapy, which may include hands on therapy, movement re-education and rehabilitation, and exercise.

Frequently Asked Questions

Shockwave therapy is also known as EPAT, extracorporeal pulse activation technology. This treatment is best on patients with stubborn and hard-to-heal injuries, but has a wide range of useful applications. It can aid in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, reduce chronic pain, and stimulate connective tissue growth.

The process itself may produce some mild discomfort but the treatment is delivered with a low amount of energy at first. This is increased as your body becomes accustomed. Your clinician will ask for constant feedback during your treatment and will adjust it accordingly. The discomfort depends entirely on the nature of your injury, and everyone reacts differently. Shockwave Therapy creates an analgesic effect, many patients report an immediate relief following shockwave therapy from the pain caused by their chronic conditions.

Shockwave is a very safe treatment, so side effects are minimal. You may develop some tenderness or bruising, but this should disappear shortly after your session.

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with our team. We’re more than happy to assist.

Our shockwave therapy is designed to be fast, efficient, and expedite your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Some people see results right away, but others may need more sessions over a period of time (usually up to 12 weeks).

We will assess your needs and determine the best treatment plan going forward, as every injury and body is different. You can often notice a difference after your first session, with improved mobility and less pain in the long term.
