Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | SPORTS HUB SPECIAL FEATURE -

Ra­dial shock wave ther­apy is an ad­vanced treat­ment for chronic ten­don in­juries, it ap­plies high-fre­quency shock waves di­rectly to a ten­don through a spe­cific ap­pli­ca­tor.

The ma­chine trig­gers a heal­ing re­sponse in­side the ten­don that oth­er­wise has stopped heal­ing by it­self. It’s com­monly used to treat con­di­tions like Plan­tar fasci­itis, Ten­nis el­bow, Achilles ten­donitis as well as Cal­cific tendinopa­thy of the shoul­ders and hips.

Os­teopath Dr Rachael Poustie, has a clin­i­cal pas­sion for treat­ing chronic tendinopat­hies and other soft tis­sue in­juries and con­di­tions that have been un­re­spon­sive to dif­fer­ent types of ther­apy. Rachel has been us­ing ra­dial shock wave ther­apy since 2013 with tremen­dous suc­cess.

This rev­o­lu­tion­ary treat­ment that was once only avail­able to elite ath­letes is now avail­able for Sun­shine Coast res­i­dents at the Ad­vanced Health Pain In­jury & Spinal Clinic.
