Shockwave Therapy treatment is a very successful second line treatment for patients who fail to respond to appropriate physiotherapy. It is a non-surgical treatment, and works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues. This increases the blood flow within the affected area, stimulates cell regeneration and healing, and decreases local factors which can cause pain.
All new clients will require an initial clinical assessment with one of our physiotherapists. This will include:
- An assessment and diagnosis of the problem area and other contributory problems
- The creation of a personal rehabilitation programme
The Physiotherapist will confirm your suitability for Shockwave therapy and authorise a Shockwave treatment course which is conducted over three sessions.
Our ‘3 Sessions without Assessment’ package is suitable for those that already have an in-house referral.
Follow-up therapy sessions for the small minority of resistent cases that require more than 3 treatments.
