Shockwave Therapy

Shock wave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a clinically proven and highly effective treatment for chronic soft tissue injuries and certain bone conditions.

An extracorporeal shockwave is defined as a non-evasive, non-electrical high energy sound wave that passes through the body via a hand-held probe. The shock waves produce a rapid increase in blood circulation to the target area and will break down fibrous scar tissue which builds up over time, especially with chronic conditions.

The break-down of scar tissue is the key to why shock wave therapy is so effective. Unlike normal elasticated tissue, scar tissue is non-elastic and will prevent normal movement and function, thereby weakening the unaffected tissue surrounding it, often causing further damage and pain. By increasing circulation and breaking-down scar tissue, shock wave therapy will stimulate cell regeneration and promote normal healing and rapid reduction of pain. Normal function can then be restored.

 

The advantages of shockwave therapy are aplenty:

  • It works

  • It's non-invasive 

  • There's no risk of infection 

  • No risk of tendon rupture as can occur with steroid injections

  • It has NICE approval

  • It is approved by most medical insurers

 

I am pleased to be able to offer one of the most clinically advanced extracorporeal shockwave systems currently available in the Zimmer En Puls Shockwave Unit.

I can now offer this per treatment for a very competitive price of £45 per treatment session.
