KEY BENEFITS OF ESWT

 

The benefits are almost immediate pain relief and restoration of mobility enabling a much faster return to activity, compared to other conservative treatments.

 

Acoustic soundwaves are applied  causing a “shockwave” in the sub-dermal tissue.  This mechanism breaks down injured / calcified muscle or tendon fibres.   Pain is reduced and the body’s natural healing process is stimulated, speeding up the rehabilitation process.

 

Surgical intervention may be avoided by having this treatment.

 

As it is non-invasive there is very little aftercare required.  Treatments can be as quick as 15 minutes, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

TYPICAL CONDITIONS IT CAN BE USED FOR

 

It can be used to treat sub-acute and chronic injuries such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Achilles tendinopathy, tennis elbow, shoulder, hip or knee pain, hamstring injuries, muscle strain and myofascial trigger points.

 

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is proving to be a very effective next stage treatment for musculoskeletal conditions that have failed to respond to other types of treatment such as physiotherapy, exercise or massage.

 

Shockwave therapy is recognised by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) and its effectiveness is backed up by clinical evidence.  See more about the evidence/applications at https://www.shockwavetherapy.eu/  (external site)

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

You may experience some pain or discomfort, but this is usually to a tolerable level. You may notice mild side effects afterwards such as tingling, aching, redness or bruising.

AM I SUITABLE FOR SHOCKWAVE TREATMENT?

Some medical conditions mean that you should not have shockwave treatment, such as pregnancy, cancer or vascular disease. Other contra-indications to treatment are medications such as anti-coagulants (Warfarin), anti-inflammatories,  if you have a pacemaker fitted, an infection at the site of treament or had a steroid injection recently.  If you are not sure, contact us to discuss.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Most conditions require a minimum of 3 treatments, with some needing around 6 treatments.  We offer a discount for sessions purchased in bundles of 3.
