Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy delivers a radial shockwave through the surface of the skin to the injured tissue. It's an intense but very short energy wave travelling faster than the speed of sound that initiates an inflammation-like response in the injured tissue and accelerates the healing process.

It provides pain relief for the patient and is a proven non-surgical technology, included in NICE guidelines. Shockwave Therapy is effective in treating chronic, persistent or recurring painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system, particularly those involving tendons and ligaments such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs
  • Achilles tendinopathy (mid-body and insertional)
  • Patella tendinopathy (Jumper’s knee) and Osgood-Schlatter’s disease
  • Shin splints, medial tibial stress syndrome, stress fractures
  • ITB syndrome (Runner’s knee)
  • Trochanteric bursitis and gluteal tendinopathy (pain around the hip)
  • Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy and calcification in the shoulder
  • Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
