The Welsh Institute of Chiropractic will shortly be offering a new shockwave therapy service. Patients have to be referred for a course of shockwave therapy by a suitably qualified healthcare professional, who should discuss the reasons for the therapy with the patient before making the referral. Patients are usually referred for shockwave therapy if more traditional treatment methods have not been very successful, or if the recovery has reached a plateau.

Shockwave therapy is safe for most patients, however it is not suitable for certain patients, please see Frequently Asked Questions.
