Shockwave therapy is a non invasive, non electrical, high energy sound wave, which produces a rapid increase in blood circulation to a target area, to break down fibrous scar tissue.

Scar tissue is non elastic which then prevents normal movement and function, and can cause significant pain. By increasing circulation and breaking down the scar tissue, shockwave therapy can stimulate cell regeneration, promote healing and rapidly reduce pain.

There is good clinical research into the effectiveness of shockwave therapy. The team here have been very encouraged by such evidence and have therefore invested in this technology to help treat patients quickly and effectively.There are multiple research articles into its effectiveness  for conditions such as:

Calcific Tendonitis of the Shoulder

Plantar Fasciitis

Patellar Tendinopathey

Achilles Tendinopathy

Trochanetric Bursitis

Tennis Elbow

Hamstring Tendon Pain
