Introducing Shockwave Therapy
Clinically proven, non invasive treatment
How does it work?
The shockwaves are generated by a projectile that is fired at speed inside a hand-held applicator. When the applicator is placed on the surface of the skin with a coupling medium such as ultrasound gel, the impulses are delivered as a shockwave that penetrates the affected area as an aspherical “radial” wave.
Here are some common condition suitable for ESWT?
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Frozen Shoulder
- Plantar Fasciosis (strained arch)
- Heel Spurs
- Tennis Elbow
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Jumpers Knee
- Trochanteric Tendonitis
Effects of ESWT
- Treatment produces an inflammatory response, increasing metabolic activity around the site of pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process.
- Shockwave breaks down scar tissue and possibly calcification.
- Transmission of pain is blocked.

Was totally bedridden for a week with a bad muscle spasm to the lower back. Thanks to John who could accurately identify the cause and fixed me to normal in 3 physio sessions. Would certainly recommend John as a professional physio therapist and also a humble down to earth person
I picked up an injury while playing a cricket. My left leg ligament was completely broken. I was frustrated as injury was not healing with time. One of my best friend recommended me to Rapid and his recommendation did not disappoint me. John is an excellent physio but more than that he is a gem of a person.
John, Judy and the team at Rapid Physiocare are fantastic. I have been working with John for the past five months after knee surgery in February; John’s down to earth and approachable manner instantly put me at ease.
It is by far the best physiotherapy clinic that I have been to. Love the hospitality. Dr. John is very positive and motivating. I have seen great progress in my back in a very short period of time.
From his attitude I his work ethic, John is outstanding. I was referred to Rapid Physio Care weeks after my initial injury, nonetheless John knew exactly what to do and did it with care. He and his team fit me into their schedule and even saw me on a public holiday, simply because he was worried. His positivity is contagious and his knowledge is vast, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and Rapid Physio Care to anybody...
