What is Shockwave Therapy ?

We are lucky to be one of the only clinics in the Northwest to offer this service. Shockwave therapy is one of the most technologically advanced and effective non-invasive treatment methods. It is a safe alternative to surgery or steroid and other treatment injections. 

Injuries treated

  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Patellar Tendinopathy
  • Hamstring Tendinopathy
  • Gluteal Tendinopathy
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfers Elbow

What does it do?

It is an evidence-based, effective treatment for chronic tendon injuries such as achilles, hamstring, patellar, gluteal and elbow tendinopathies. It is also highly successful in the treatment of plantar fasciitis.  

The application of shockwaves gives pain relief after treatment as well as stimulating long-term tissue normalisation and regeneration. It works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues. This increases the blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration, healing and decreasing local factors which can cause pain.

A full clinical assessment of your injury is necessary to identify whether shockwave therapy is an appropriate intervention. A course of shockwave therapy will always be combined with specific rehabilitation exercises.
