Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a treatment that offers dramatic pain relief and restoration of mobility that is non-invasive, non-surgical, and drug-free. ESWT is extremely effective in treating tendon injuries, and can be used for both acute and chronic pain. The complete list of approved indications for which ESWT can be used is as follows:
Some patients report a dramatic reduction of pain in just one or two sessions.
Surgery, which involves incisions made into the skin, creates its own problems like post-operative scar tissue formation. As ESWT is performed through the skin, there is no risk of this happening.
Many patients return to dancing, lifting weights, or just their regular routine very soon after ESWT treatment. Some even do so within the same day of treatment.
ESWT signals the body to eliminate damaged and unhealthy tissue, and to grow new and healthy tissue.
It lubricates your joints by signaling the body to produce lubricin. This substance acts as a lubricant and a shock-absorber. Lubricin decreases with age, which is why older people may feel more aches and pains in their joints.
ESWT signals the body to create new blood vessels. These new blood vessels bring blood into the injured area which enhances healing and tissue regeneration.
"A really good friend recommended me to see Dr Luke to find relieve from a slipped disc and nerve pain. Dr Luke is a life saver! I was in so much pain that I had to hobble around painfully with a walking stick. After a few weeks of treatment with Dr Luke, my pain was much reduced and I could walk around without aid of a walking stick. I am thankful that Dr Luke was able to help me in my recovery. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends and family."

"I was initially referred to Dr Luke through Genesis gym where I was undergoing rehabilitation for chronic patella tendonitis in 2010. This condition had caused me severe aggravation over the course of three years which had limited my ability to continue playing rugby competitively and even caused issues climbing down stairs. Combined with the therapy I was receiving at Genesis, I was back playing rugby and squatting 160kg within 3 months. Testament to the holistic approach that Dr Luke implements I have been back and forth with various injuries I have sustained through rugby and MMA since my first visit. My wife is also a patient of Dr. Luke who frequently visited pre and post child birth. This has helped tremendously with her lower back pain and spine misalignment. I have recommended Dr. Luke to many of my friends and colleagues over the years all of who have had very good experience."

"Went to Dr Luke for my old injury in my lower back pain due to a bad fall, which had been troubling me for years: settled in 5 sessions. Should have met him first instead of spending thousands for physiotherapy. He ended up fixing almost every other part of my body. Fixed the tension in my head due to teeth grinding/clenching (which i don’t even know I had), he did some facial muscle… (i don’t know what he calls it) my face ends up looking slimmer + balancing left and right, saved me a trip to go Korea. Fixed my lopsided shoulder. Fixed my life-long problem of forever cramping calves. Fixed my shortness of breath which I thought was due to being fat or having a heart problem. Taught me how to stretch specific muscles. He’s a good doctor to consult regarding your fitness level and sports injuries. Willing to spend time to talk to you. Warning pleasant to talk to and look at, might get addictive. I don’t usually write reviews but this guy is really good at what he’s doing!"
"Dr Luke and team are all very skilled in their own field…whether it’s rehab time with Victor, Myofascial with Faye or chiropratic session with Dr Luke, I always feel well taken care of! Thanks everyone!"
