Shockwave therapy

Shockwave Therapy for chronic foot pain, tennis elbow and achilles pain

Commonly referred to as heel spurs, plantar fasciitis is a painful and often debilitating condition that afflicts more than 500,000 people in the UK each year1.

Although everyone is at risk, plantar fasciitis is most commonly found in athletes, runners, overweight individuals, or those who are required to stand on hard surfaces for prolonged periods of ime. It’s also one of the most common athletic injuries seen in general practice.

Treatment options

Although physiotherapy or local steroid injections can help relieve the problem in the majority of cases, surgery has been the only available alternative for chronic sufferers. However surgery carries risks and complications can arise, including infection, and has a success rate of only 50%. The recovery time from surgery can be as long as 6 to 8 weeks.

Introducing “Shockwave Therapy“

Now patients that have been suffering for years with chronic pain in their feet and ankles may be successfully treated with Shockwave Therapy using the latest high tech non surgical equipment.

Shockwave Therapy delivers a radial shockwave through the surface of the skin to the injured tissue. This shockwave initiates an inflammation-like response in the injured tissue and accelerates the healing process by regenerating blood vessels. It also provides pain relief for the patient.

Shockwave Therapy offers the following benefits:

  • Level 1 and 2 clinical trial data supports efficacy
  • Included in NICE guidelines
  • Proven non-surgical technology
  • Treatment is simple and takes minutes
  • No need for anaesthetic or lengthy rehabilitation

What about treating other conditions?

Shockwave Therapy can also be useful in treating severe tendonitis, for example tennis and golfers elbow, shoulder pain and painful Achilles heels.

If tendonitis is severe and leads to the rupture of a tendon this may need surgical repair. Until now surgery has been the only available alternative for chronic sufferers.

How to access treatment?
