Microwave Therapy for
Podiatry & Dermatology
The Swift Microwave therapy system is a non-invasive medical device used for the treatment of a range of soft tissue conditions, including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, and tennis elbow. The system utilizes microwave energy to generate heat and stimulate the body’s natural healing response.
The treatment process involves the use of a handheld device that emits microwave energy into the affected tissue. The device is placed in direct contact with the skin, and the energy is directed deep into the tissue to target the source of pain and inflammation. The energy heats the tissue to a therapeutic level, promoting increased blood flow and reducing inflammation, which can help to relieve pain and promote healing.
The Swift Microwave therapy system is unique in that it is designed to provide a comfortable and pain-free treatment experience. The device uses a patented technology that delivers controlled, low-level microwave energy, which is less likely to cause discomfort or pain than other heating modalities. This makes it a popular choice for patients who are sensitive to other forms of heat therapy, such as ultrasound or laser therapy.
Treatment with the Swift Microwave therapy system is typically performed in a series of short sessions, with each session lasting approximately five to ten minutes. Most patients require multiple sessions over a period of several weeks to achieve optimal results. The treatment is typically administered by a trained healthcare professional, such as a physical therapist or chiropractor.
Overall, the Swift Microwave therapy system is a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment option for patients suffering from a range of soft tissue conditions. It provides a comfortable and pain-free treatment experience, making it an ideal choice for patients who are seeking a gentle and non-invasive approach to pain relief and healing.

What is Swift®?
Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.
Does it Hurt?
It is not uncommon for patients to feel a sharp sensation, similar to an injection. Unlike most treatments for verruca, pain felt during the treatment quickly subsides, and only in rare cases is there any prolonged pain.
What Can I Do After Treatment?
In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month apart depending on the response). Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will be able to discuss this with you.
Can Anyone Receive This Treatment?
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment.
