Shockwave therapy is a highly effective non-invasive and non-surgical solution for musculoskeletal pain. This extracorporeal shockwave therapy is frequently used in physiotherapy, orthopaedics and sports medicine for pain relief. At Lifecare Physiotherapy, we offer treatments using BTL 6000 Topline power unit which is very effective in penetrating and reaching deeper structures like piriformis muscle, in addition it is more effective in breaking down scar tissue and calcium deposits.



A shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and Musculoskeletal tissues with subacute, sub-chronic and chronic conditions. This energy promotes regenerating and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
